Democrats fought for open voting
Personally I’m going to admit that I have a fear concerning the Democrat Party’s fooling around with the voters and people of this nation. I will readily admit that this fear I have is not new and considering every election that I’ve been a part of either as a kid or as an adult has been influenced – or better yet – mangled by the Democrat Party.
First let us take a statement from an earlier posting called to our attention by one of our super-commenter’s. This individual actually stipulated to the notion that voters in any and all elections should have a card with the bearer’s DNA profile and biometric measurements on the card to verify that it is in fact the bearer who is using the card.
Personally I don’t have any problem with that – albeit I wouldn’t want to be having a beer with any of our Founders and try and explain to them the motivation and criteria that caused what every ACLU lawyer in this nation would be calling a clear invasion of personal privacy.
Second and also mentioned in an earlier writing that the voting process is a state concern and not a federal mandate – however, who according to the last four elections (16 years) could possibly believe that the state is going to have their say. This could get tricky – yet we have one of the most astute audiences reading.
In a democracy, a government is chosen by voting in an election: a way for an electorate to elect, i.e. choose, among several candidates for rule. In a representative democracy voting is the method by which the electorate appoints its representatives in its government. A vote is a formal expression of an individual’s choice in voting, for or against some motion (for example, a proposed resolution), for a certain candidate, a selection of candidates, or a political party. A secret ballot has come to be the practice to prevent voters from being intimidated and to protect their political privacy. Voting usually takes place at a polling station.
Prior to the election, Democrats fought for open voting requiring no identification – particularly photo ID. Coincidentally, Obama won every state that didn’t fully require photo ID to vote. Democrats contended that voter ID laws suppress the vote. But they do not. They only suppress the illegal vote.
Third and perhaps most important is the notion that no legal voter in this country should be disenfranchised or have difficulty being heard with their own ballots. What we are supporting here is if a person can get to an agency to claim photo identification (ID) they should.
We see no problems with this or any agency within the Department of Homeland Security administering the precise protocols for citizenship documentation. Clear identity proof, and where an individual lives or stays at to satisfy any and all requirements to prove for the last time that a person is who they say they are as well as to appease any state or government requirement to vote.
Military voting wasn’t nearly a problem when a few of us served our Country. Making absolutely certain that soldiers have access to their ballots with well enough time to vote and return the ballot back their commanding officer for delivery should never, ever be a problem within the country.
Neither should qualifying a person who is here in the USA from the actual voting process. Fourth, it is well-suspected that illegal aliens from Central America as well as the Middle East, Africa, and the Russian Federation may have participated illegally in the last election.
Fifth there is and can be no excuses made for not having the proper documentation. This criterion only exists in the minds of those who are trying to advocate voter fraud. The reason for this complex statement is there are far too many social advocacy groups as well as public accommodations for someone not to be able to readily achieve their goals of passports, SSAN cards, driver’s licenses, or any other form of identification providing that said ID actually exists.
Sixth and finally, there should not be a laissez-faire attitude around voting. It is a right bestowed upon us by birth, and furthermore backed-up by the U.S. Constitution. It remains the final validity as an American as we will ever find. Voting as was taught to me in grammar school was an act that should be revered.
Imagine what happened to reverence during our last general election.

All the better to monitor its citizens against thought crime: "the residents of Iran must give their name along with their father's name, telephone number, address and national ID to log in to access internet."
How about that for name and password?
