Of all the b.s. memes liberals throw out there, this is by far the one that angers me the most: “Demanding photo ID from voters will certainly disenfranchise (insert race, sex, or creed here).”
It’s crap, and they know it. Thankfully, the measure just passed the PA House and is on its way to the Senate. It’s a move that will surely cut down on the rampant voter fraud in Philly – and throughout the state. Naturally, the libtards think the policy is racist/sexist/ageist.
A group providing legal services to senior citizens is worried that a bill requiring most people to have a photo ID to vote will disenfranchise many elders. The bill, passed by the Pennsylvania House, awaits action in the Senate, and Karen Buck, executive director of the SeniorLAW Center, is hoping these politicians heed her objections: that an estimated 18% of seniors no longer have government issued ID’s, and some would have a devil of a time getting one.
“We do understand that people say you need photo ID for lots of things today and we certainly understand that argument, but traveling or going into a business or certain types of transactions cannot be equated with a fundamental right of citizenship such as the right to vote.”
Never mind the fact that you need photo ID to drive, fly, buy a car, buy a home, check into a hotel, and dozens of other things people do every single day. Facts only get in the way of a good liberal talking point.
If Buck was intellectually honest, she would be fighting just as hard for military personnel stationed overseas. They actually were disenfranchised in the 2008 election, but since most military personnel are conservative, they don’t fit Ms. Buck’s parameters.
