The Politics and Realities of Voter ID

I am surprised that advocates of small government are so eager to empower what many believe are the worst of all state buracracies - the Dept. of Motor Vehicles. I dispise this office almost as much as I do the revenue departments but will concede that revenue is a legitimate government function. The issuance of domestic passports in the guise of driver's licenses should be shunned by conservatives. Mandating ids for nearly every commercial and even social activities is coming extremely close to the "mark of the beast" and the trend in that direction is a bigger threat to our future than letting a few undocumented people slip into a voting booth - especially since courts are ruling that illegal aliens cannot be denied driver's licenses.

It is not just a few undocumented people. It is people who were born in this country who want to vote more than once. Photo ID is not a mark of the beast. It is simply a way to help merchants make sure they are not taking bad checks and for us to make sure that our vote means something and is not overridden by someone who votes several times. Have you ever noticed that it is only the Democrats who are opposed to picture ID at voting stations? There is a reason for that.

What's remarkable is they're not even trying to cover their crookedness anymore but have moved right on to putting it on full display.


In 2004, I authored the Prop 200: Arizona Taxpayers and Citizens Protection Act.   The law required  proof of citizenship to register to vote, a photo I.D. when voting, and proof of eligibility to receive non-federal mandated public benefits.  The Left and even many RINOs like John McCain screamed racism, but Arizona voters passed it by an overwhelming margin.

It seems like déjà vu, as States across the country are cracking down on voting fraud by passing voter ID laws.  The Obama administration led by Attorney General Eric Holder and the organized Left respond by claiming it will...
