I got to thinking today about the newest crazy thing I heard on the news and decided it called for a RANT!!!!!!!

If I go to get a library card, board an airline, buy a beer, get pulled over by a policeman, buy a tobacco product, cash a check at the grocery store, get a mail box, adopt a pet, purchase a firearm, make a credit car purchase at Best Buy, apply for a loan, open a bank account, get married, close on a house, rent an apartment, get insurance, start a new job, check into a hotel…….I have to have….(wait for it….)…AN ID.

I’m sure this list is not all inclusive but in their infinite wisdom, the Obama administration blocked the new Texas Law requiring VOTERS to show photo identification before they can vote……Now they are not just picking on Texas….they blocked the strict voter ID law in South Carolina and a judge in Wisconsin issued an injunction against that state’s law. No word yet if the Kansas ID law has escaped the long-arm of the Obama Justice Department.

Various news shows have done exposes’ on voter fraud…..but it seems that when any state attempts to be proactive about this problematic issue, their efforts are rebuffed. So what do we want? Do we want the problem solved or not?

U. S. Senator John Cornyn stated, “Today’s decision reeks of politics and appears to be an effort by the Department of Justice to carry water for the President’s reelection campaign.”

YOU THINK????????

In my humble opinion, requiring an ID to vote is not unreasonable. What do you think?
