As you might know, Republicans around the country have been pushing Voter ID laws. Aggressively pushing. Pushing like a panicky heroin dealer who owes the Mob lots of vig on his back payments. They have been trumpeting them in the media, courts, and legislatures as necessary to combat “voter fraud”. Now, when it goes to court and they have to sign on the dotted line,they suddenly admit that there is no evidence of voter fraud to combat.

Mind you, that hasn’t stopped them from pushing the laws anyway. Mr. Blunt and Cranky is more than a bit flummoxed by this: when we are spending taxpayer dollars to combat a problem, one would reasonably expect a problem to exist, and that our “representatives” would have actual proof of the existence of said problem. So, one wonders, why are they doing all this expensive (but seemingly unneeded) work on the taxpayers’ dime?

Uncommon honesty, at least in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania: they are pushing voter ID laws so as to cut back on the number of registered likely Dem voters, thus making it easier for Repubs to win.  This is not just a random blogger’s opinion: it is the stated objective of Repub lawmakers involved in such efforts.

Here’s where the PA GOP House Majority leader tells us why he pushed the law in his state: http://www.politicspa.com/turzai-voter-id-law-means-romney-can-win-pa/37153/   Use the Google thing to find a more detailed admission from the WI GOP Big Cheese(head).

Straight from the Elephant’s mouth, folks. Ask yourself: why would you vote for a party that out-and-out makes s*** up in order to take away the legitimate rights of American citizens?  These laws would have stripped this writer’s mother (a lifelong Republican, by the bye) of her right to vote. Make your blood boil?

It gets worse: the next voter to lose their rights might just be you. Think about it.
