Dems are dead-set against Voter ID because it makes voter fraud easier when ID is not required. The Dems and big majorities of Dem members of Congress hate it. The rationale for opposing voter ID is it discourages minorities from participating in the electoral system. That reasoning has been repudiated by majorities of blacks and Hispanics, who don’t see any threat to show a photo ID. If Obama, Holder and Dems in Congress had their way, every state and city in America would be run like Washington. We're past the days of Jim Crow, much to the chagrin of the Dems, which instituted and maintained those racial discrimination and intimidation policies in the South for far too long. We’ve seen in recent decades far less chances that blacks will be turned away from polls because of their race than whites. When the New Black Panthers stationed armed thugs in front of polling places in Philadelphia to intimidate white voters, Eric Holder refused to prosecute the perpetrators. Obama, Holder and the Dems don’t have a problem with racial discrimination at the polls, as long as they perceive that racial discrimination as beneficial to their own empowerment. Don't allow America to transform into a Third World-style banana republic. Obama and the Dems have demonstrated utter contempt for the Constitution. They actively seek disempowerment of anyone who disagrees with their agenda. They will use any means necessary to impose their radical agenda on the rest of us.

So there is no logical reason why Voter ID laws should not be enforced in all 50 states. It is becoming more and more obvious that President Obama is going for the Illegal Immigrant vote. The 2008 Presidential elections were decided with a nearly 10,000,000 vote difference. This upcoming election will most definitely be closer than that, and he will do whatever necessary to win, even using the votes of illegal immigrants. We cannot allow the fate of this Nation to be decided by a bunch of criminals who shouldn't even be in this country to begin with.

We have a streamlined process. Either show a SC driver's license, or a SC state ID card, both of which are issued at any DMV office.
