The Rushmore Report: Voter ID – Who’s the Real Racist?

Who’s the real racist? Progressives characterize conservatives as “racists” for demanding citizens produce a photo ID in order to vote. So who’s the racist – the person who wants voters to produce the same ID required to buy a pack of cigarettes or board a plane, or the person who thinks only white people are capable of getting a photo ID? Amazingly, 17 states require no ID to vote, meaning you can vote multiple times. Apparently, progressives are fine with that.

One of the most laughable assertions of modern politics is the suggestion that requiring a voter ID places an undue burden on minorities. By supporting the policy of these 17 states, mostly liberal, progressives are supporting the opportunity of voting multiple times, as each voter can cast multiple ballots under other names within the same precinct.

“It is too much to expect someone to get some form of ID in order to vote,” we are told. But here are 25 things you cannot do without a photo ID. How come the liberals don’t find any of these “demands” objectionable? Why aren’t the airlines, convenience stores, and banks considered “racist”?

Here is a list of just some of the things you cannot do without a photo ID . . .

1. Open a bank account.

2. File for unemployment.

3. Apply for welfare.

4. Apply for food stamps.

5. Apply for Social Security.

6. Buy a home.

7. Drive a car.

8. Buy a car.

9. Rent a car.

10. Board a plane.

11. Get married.

12. Check into a hotel room.

13. Buy a gun.

14. Apply for a fishing license.

15. Adopt a pet.

16. Pick up a prescription.

17. Buy cold medicine.

18. Donate blood.

19. Enter a casino.

20. Buy lotto tickets.

21. Buy a video game marked “M” for mature.

22. Buy a cell phone.

23. Buy cigarettes.

24. Buy alcohol.

23. Hold a rally against voter ID.

Still not convinced that requiring voters to prove they are who they say they are? Still not convinced it’s a bad idea to let people roam from polling station to polling station claiming a false name so they can vote dozens of time in each election? Still not convinced those who must produce ID in order to buy cold medicine or board a plane should have to meet the same criteria to pick the leader of the free world? Then move to any of these states, and you can vote as many times as you like. No ID required – California, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming, and Washington, D.C.

Let’s be clear. You need an ID to hold a rally against voter ID, but you don’t need an ID to actually vote. And this is called “progressive”?

Let’s ask the question again. One group (conservatives) suggests everyone should have an ID to vote. The other group (progressives) suggests only white people are capable of getting a voter ID.

Who’s the racist?
