President Obama recently declared that it is too hard to vote. Too hard? There isn’t anything easier. You just walk in and sign a sheet…and vote. This is the only act in America that doesn’t require a valid I.D. It is far too easy to vote.
You can’t buy a loaf of bread without presenting a driver’s license or I.D. card. Purchase a ‘big ticket’ item and you need to present a valid, government-issued photo I.D., your social security number, a note from Oprah Winfrey and a blood sample. If, Heaven forbid, you want to buy a pack of cigarettes, you’ll need a driver’s license and birth certificate- and be required to submit to finger-printing.
Too hard to vote? It is much, much easier than standing in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles licensing station waiting to get your driver’s license renewed! If we don’t require an I.D. for exercising the privilege of voting for the leader of the free world- an act that also has serious repercussions for people around the globe- why should we require one for anything else?
Want proof that it is too easy to vote? Some precincts in the U.S. have seen more votes cast than they have registered voters. Moreover, thousands of dead people across the country somehow manage to vote in each presidential election.
If they can do it, anybody can.
George Washington must be rolling in his grave.
But he’ll probably still vote this November 8th.
