Hell, if it's too much trouble to have to show a photo ID before voting, then why aren't those same people not objecting to showing an ID when being pulled over for speeding?
In other words, if an individual has a driver's license and doesn't mind presenting it to law enforcement, then why, pray tell, do they object to showing a photo ID to vote?
Why should they have to show a valid photo ID at banks?
Come to think of it, why do we need photo IDs in the first place?
After all, isn't that voter suppression? (Sarcasm)
Interestingly, and not surprising, I bet those who are against photo IDs for voting, didn't mind having to show one when they were delegates at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
Those delegates had to show a photo ID before voting for their presidential candidate.
And, as in a letter to the editor of mine that was published in this newspaper months ago, where was the outrage by Democrats regarding the delegates having to show a photo ID at the DNC?
Did you know that in India, practically every citizen has a photo ID, and they must present it when voting.
They have not complained about it, either.
So, exactly why do the Democrats oppose a photo ID?
It's not suppression.
It's not voter intimidation.
It's not voter disenfranchisement, either.
So, tell us Democrats, why this is a burden. And explain why many states require a photo ID to vote, with hardly anyone complaining.
