We know the Party of Treason. Can anyone remember the last time they supported anything in America’s best interest? Now, the Party of Treason has come out in full support of fraud and can now also be called the Party of Fraud.
What have they done?
Democrats have an objection to voters being required to show a photo ID before being allowed to vote. That seems like a sane requirement. We should prevent identity theft and should make sure that someone coming in to cast a ballot is actually entitled to cast that ballot.
That sounds like a good idea to everyone but the Party of Fraud.

Democrats are battling a growing number of states that are preparing to implement tougher voter identification laws.
Stopping voter ID laws is crucial to Democrats who argue college students; the elderly and minorities will be prevented from voting under the new laws.
“It’s no surprise that these voter suppression efforts are being pushed by Republicans in key swing states,” said Democratic Governor Association spokeswoman Lis Smith.
Republicans pushing to pass such legislation counter that tougher laws will prevent voter fraud and keep ineligible voters from the polling booths.
Now, opponents of the laws don’t just have Republicans to worry about.
Rhode Island’s independent Gov. Lincoln Chafee is the latest to join the voter identification law spree—he signed a tougher bill into law Tuesday after it was passed by the state’s Democratic-controlled house and senate. The governor told The Providence Journal the new law would increase “accuracy and integrity” shortly after signing the bill.
Nearly 20 other states are considering more stringent voter photo identification laws, which has many Democrats crying out in retaliation.
More than 15 Democratic senators have signed a letter calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate the legality of states’ “highly restrictive photo identification requirements,” which they allege violate the 1965 Voting Rights Act and, ultimately, civil rights.
First, why would anyone object to the idea of stopping vote fraud? Unless of course, you benefit from vote fraud. Democrats are legendary for the concept of vote early and vote often. From Richard Daley in Chicago to Lyndon Johnson in Texas, Democrats have a long and storied history of getting the dead to vote for them.
The Democrats in Rhode Island seem to get it but they are a definite minority in the Party of Fraud.
Democrats argue that this impacts college students, the elderly and minorities. We have heard this garbage for decades. Can we have a little proof?
Let’s look at this. College students? Has anyone ever met a college student who did not have a driver’s license? How about a college ID? Is there a University out there that does not issue a photo ID for college? Of course, the only problem most college students have is an ID that shows them to be over 21 so they can drink.
What about the elderly? Photo ID is required for social security, Medicare and almost every other service you can think of. Minorities? What, are the Democrats saying minorities are too stupid to get photo IDs?
In this country you have to have a photo ID to:
Take a train
Take a bus
Drive a car
Cash a check
Engage in almost any financial transaction
Receive almost any government benefit.
Why not a photo ID to vote? It is a great idea, unless it is going to cost you the election because it will mean dead people can no longer vote.
As we roll into 2012, look for the Democrats to engage in fraud on a massive scale. It is probably their only hope to save Obama. Every Tea Party group should be working on stopping vote fraud at the local level. There is a lot you can do.
There is an amazing group that has done incredible work stopping vote fraud. The organization is called True the Vote. (truethevote.org) What they did can be duplicated in almost any state, city or county.
The left cannot continue to drive this country towards socialism and destroy our freedoms if they cannot get into office and in most cases, without vote fraud, they cannot get into office.
Remember, you can stop the Party of Fraud.
...WE NEED to do a complete redo of voter registration... it could be handled at DMV, there are always a couple of lines unused... if started in September, every eligible person could be reregistered in time for the 2012 elections... birth certificate or nationalization papers required... presto! new voter ID card with photo... all of the work that ACORN and other liberal organizations have done would be wiped out... and I bet Mickey Mouse would be registered as a Republican!
FIVE PEOPLE could be hired for each DMV... one supervisor, three to work the 2 windows, and one liberal to call in sick. THINK of all the jobs that would be created! ALL of the pieces/parts are already in place for this to happen... this is a SHOVEL READY endeavor!
This has become a very hot issue here in OH--in the county where I live, I must present my driver's license before I am given a ballot (if I vote absentee, I must fill in either my SSN or DL# on the form requesting a ballot). Unfortunately, our Republican Sec. of State Jon Husted would not support a recent measure proposed in our state legislature--said it was too restrictive (???).
"I would rather have no bill than one with a rigid photo identification provision that does little to protect against fraud and excludes legally registered voters' ballots from counting," Husted said.
GOP leaders put the election bill on temporary hold to make sure that they were comfortable considering the other changes the bill would impose, including limiting the number of early voting days, the AP reported. They stripped the voter ID measure out of the larger election bill last week, but a separate bill to require voter IDs is still pending, and is expected to be taken up before the end of the month.
"I do not believe this is in any way a voter suppression issue," said Tom Niehaus, the Republican President of the Senate. "This is about maintaining the integrity of the voting process."
Democrats, Voting rights groups and liberal organizations have lined up in opposition against Ohio's bill, which would require a state-issued photo ID to vote. In a press release, Ohio House Democratic Leader Armond Budish called it a modern day poll tax.
Six states -- Alabama, Kansas, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee and Wisconsin -- have passed photo voter ID legislation this year alone. Similar measures have been considered in 33 states this year already.
"When looking at the facts, this legislation is politically motivated and treads on the most fundamental rights of Ohioans," Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga said in a statement.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said last week it would sue over the measure.
"The passage of House Bill 194 makes Ohio's voter identification law the most restrictive in the nation," ACLU of Ohio Legal Director James L. Hardiman said.
"While proponents argue that the change is necessary in order to prevent voter fraud, there is simply no evidence that widespread fraud exists and that this would do anything to prevent it," Hardiman said. State legislators will disenfranchise thousands of Ohioans to solve a problem that does not exist."
Stating that "there is simply no evidence that widespread fraud exists" is a lie and they know it--ACORN ran rampant in our state along with our corrupt former SOS Brunner--and notice how all these comments opposing this were from unions and ACLU--can you get any more liberal then either of them?
I support voter ID; I support cutting back on the number of days for early/absentee voting (here in Cleveland, it's only corrupted the voting process not helped it!) If voting is important to you, then wouldn't you want to do everything you could to make sure that it was honest and above board? But since IMO, the Dems/liberals/progressives don't know what "honesty" truly is, they will never support election voting reforms.
Indeed. And here's one Ohiowan who won't be able to present his license at the poll.
I am reminded of my great grandsons hero Bob the Builder. "Can we fix it? Yes we can!"
Here in Wisconsin we are on the way to implementing voter ID. Attending hearings and committee meetings it was so silly to hear those in opposition. Disenfranchise was their favorite. Cost and actual work involved was the next. Voter fraud unproven came next. None were reason to stop giving citizen's the chance to have valid voter ID.
