Despite what the open borders crowd and ACLU will tell you, yes it is: “.. in North Carolina, which compared its voter rolls against a federal immigration database. The cross-check of 10,000 voters found 1,425 likely non-citizen voters, including 109 illegal immigrants or so-called “Dreamers.” And with elections being decided by a few hundred or few thousand votes, such as Al Franken ’s 312-vote win in the 2008 Minnesota U.S. Senate race, these numbers make voter fraud a real possibility.
“…two Old Dominion professors concluded that non-citizen votes may have been responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. “Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.””
So you can’t buy beer or wine, or cigarettes, or get on an airplane, or cash a check, or pick up your prescription, without an ID, and that’s no problem. But to vote? Come on down! Show an ID?? Why, that’s racist! You’re suppressing my vote! What if I don’t have an ID? (Notice how we have evidence of voter fraud, illegals with IDs on the voter rolls, but the folks that fight against Voter ID Laws never seem to have actual evidence and numbers and real people with them that can prove that the law keeps someone from voting. And actually, it can never actually keep someone from voting that is legally able to vote: all they have to do is get the required ID, and most states bend over backward to make sure that is easy and cheap to do).
Andrew’s Note: I still get asked for my ID when I vote…I don’t think it’s a political statement or a sanctity of the ballot box issue…I think the election judge just finds it easier to find me on the roles…but I always say “thank you for checking ID.”
