I recently posted a piece on the Taliban’s latest atrocity — the cutting off of the ink-stained fingers of Afghanistan citizens who recently had voted. I did not publish the picture that accompanied the article [link] because I wanted to comment on it separately.
Take a look and tell me if you notice something very interesting….
These women are proudly showing that they voted — note the ink on their index fingers.
Democracy in action in a very rough part of the world.
But what are they holding in their hands?
Could it be…
How about that.
Back here is the United States, beacon of democracy, we have a political party known as “Democrats” that opposes making sure that voters are identifiable as citizens with legitimate voting rights.
President Obama and Democrats in Congress are pushing back against the new voter identification laws and requirements that Republican-led states have been busy implementing across the country. <CBS News, link>
That’s right, even though many aspects of our civil society require photo-ID, and even though 70% of likely US voters are in favor of voter identification (source), and even though 78% of likely US voters are in favor of a proof-of-citizenship requirement for voter registration (source), and even though Afghanistan apparently uses voter ID to ensure the integrity of its elections, Democrats would prefer that anyone at all can just show up and elect our leaders.
Why? Because outright fraud is an essential element of how Democrats win elections (along with a legion of Candy Crowleys who will blatantly support Democrats over Republicans at pivotal moments in campaigns).
American Liberalism: where the illegal immigrant is king, the rule of law is trampled every day, and the citizen is dog shit.
