Funny though as I posted today.. coming home from work on the Randy Rhodes show(although it was a substitute today) and they gave this example of a 96 year old who had voted for the last 70 years who wasn’t going to be able to vote because while she had her birth certificate she didn’t have her marriage certificate to certify her current last name and how it was such a burden to get her marriage certificate. They complained how it was hard for elderly to get down to the dmv.. although they made no mention that they can seem to make it to the polls but not the dmv. I think that arguement is lame. Basically they are saying people are so lazy that they won’t be bothered to do one or two fairly simple things so that they can vote.
I say good then they shouldn’t vote. If they are that lazy they won’t jump through a few minor hoops to get a State ID then they clearly are too lazy to even know who they are voting for.
We’re falling into the trap the left always sets. They throw some sob story out, and we conservatives try to counter their argument. We should be talking about why the left doesn’t like voter ID laws, rather than countering their latest 96 year old woman disingenuous sob story. When they roll a sob story out, instead of responding to the sob story, we should respond by saying, “You just don’t like voter ID laws because it prohibits you from committing vote fraud.”
