Nothing wrong with asking for ID to vote

Posted7/19/2021 1:00 AM

Recently the baseball All-Star Game was played in Denver, Colorado. Major League Baseball moved the game from Atlanta, Georgia, in response to Democrat and media complaints that Georgia's recent voting reform would restrict minorities from voting. The principal offense was requiring a picture ID to vote.

They claimed requiring a picture ID would prevent minority voters from successfully casting their ballots. What an insult to voters to say they couldn't obtain a picture ID. Can't find the DMV office to get a free state ID card or a driver's license if they wished to drive?


Who's kidding whom? Supposedly these voters don't currently have a picture ID. Can't fly, can't buy adult beverages, can't buy many cold medicines, can't cash a check. Seriously? Photo ID for voting is the right thing to do.

They claim, "White voters can obtain a photo ID, but minority voters can't." Come on, that's nuts. And the claim itself judges people by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character.

Enough. I say, make it easy to vote and hard to cheat.
