Voter ID law suppresses freedom
To the Editor:
VOTER ID IS REALLY VOTER SUPPRESSION.
This was actually proven in an interview with the Governor of Pennsylvania that was aired on a T.V. news program last Thursday night. To quote what the Governor actually said, "VOTER I.D. IS GOING TO ALLOW GOVERNOR ROMNEY TO WIN THE STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA. DONE."
Haven't all the states, including Georgia, that have enacted the VOTER I.D. RULE done so in hopes of doing what the Pennsylvania Governor hopes to do, suppress the votes of the ELDERLY, the POOR , the ELDERLY AFRICAN AMERICANS, THOSE WITHOUT DRIVERS LICENSES, AND THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW HOW TO GET A VOTER I.D.? These would be Obama's. They hope that by playing the game this unfair way, TAKING AWAY PEOPLES RIGHTS, Romney can win.
VOTER FRAUD IS SO INSIGNIFICANT, AND THERE ARE SO FEW RECORDED CASES, IT COULD NOT POSSIBLY AFFECT THE OUTCOME OF AN ELECTION. I read that there were only 311 cases recorded the last big election, and there were millions upon millions of votes cast.
We have been told that voter fraud is rampant, and that is not true. In 2004. Washington state had only 0.0009 percent and Ohio had only 0.00004 percent fraud cases out of all votes cast. This has been trumped up by the politicians for Romney
The truth is not always sweet.
