I believe right down to my bones that the American democratic republic is the highest, best form of government in the world. At the same time, I know it isn’t as pure as some of us would like to believe — recall the 1960 presidential election when Joe Kennedy stole the election from Nixon on behalf of his son.
These days, we have the Obama administration’s Justice Department thwarting integrity in the voting process:
The Justice Department in December rejected South Carolina’s law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls. It was the first voter ID law to be refused by the federal agency in nearly 20 years. <source>
Well how about that — a law requiring photo ID to vote is struck down. Why would that be? Do Democrats feel they need loopholes through which they can game the election process?
But South Carolina is not going to take it:
South Carolina says in a lawsuit that the U.S. Justice Department was wrong to block the state from requiring voters to show government-issued photo identification to vote. Attorney General Alan Wilson asks a judge to overturn the federal government decision in a lawsuit filed Tuesday.
And so the battle for the soul of our nation continues…
