The state of Georgia passes a law requiring voters to present a state I.D. at the polling place. A well known Marxist rag whines about it.

Under the Voting Rights Act, Georgia's law must be cleared by the Justice Department before it can take effect. There can be little doubt that the law would have "the effect of denying or abridging the right to vote on account of race," and it therefore must be rejected. But in the current Justice Department, there is a real danger that this decision will be based on politics rather than law.


Anyone who cannot be bothered to make the minimal effort to obtain the proper identification card certainly could not be counted on to make a rational choice at the polls and thus should have no voice in government.

Georgia's new identification requirement is part of a nationwide drive to erect barriers at the polls. Indiana also recently passed a new photo-identification requirement, and several other states, including Ohio, are considering the addition of such requirements.

We would certainly benefit from having fewer whim-driven idiots gumming up the political works.

And are we to believe that the same Democratic Party that routinely charters busses to haul welfare trash and the elderly to polling places are somehow unable to haul the same pet voters to the driver's license bureau?

There are many steps states can take to reduce election fraud. But laws that condition voting on having a particular piece of identification that many eligible voters do not possess have no place in a democracy.

What has no place in free republic is mob of counterfeit voters acting to overturn the true will of the citizen body.

The reality is that the so-called Democratic party relies on fraud in order turn marginal defeats into victories. What truly matters to them is power. The power to plunder the productive for the material benefit of the mob of parasites that make up the Democrat constituency. And the power to use rational citizens and their children as fodder for various social engineering schemes.

Anything that stands in the way of obtaining and holding onto power is an obstacle that is to be overcome by any means necessary. Be it the promise of false rights or the deluge of false votes, no trick is too foul, morally or legally, for the Democratic Party.

Perhaps the time has come to dispense with the polite fiction that the Democratic Party is a legitimate political faction.

What I didn't remember at the time I wrote this is that Minnesota (and other states) require adults to have an I.D. card on their persons> To this end Minnesota issues a non-driver I.D. card. This renders nonsensical the notion that the I.D. card requirement would shut out nondrivers from the polling place.
