By now, every Conservative should know how the argument of a Liberal degrades. It goes something like this:
A Conservative makes some valid political point seeking a Liberal’s counterpoint. Instead of providing a well-thought out intelligent answer, the first response is usually some irrelevant or made-up statistic. Sometimes it can even be a made-up quotation. After the Conservative provides a sound defense of his position, the Liberal continues to answer unintelligibly. Repeat this process three times (Sometimes it only takes making the original point). Finally, out of desperation, and knowing his position is full of holes, the Liberal resorts to calling you a racist or if you are proposing some sort of policy, the term ‘racist’ won’t do, so your policy is now a part of the old Jim Crow laws.
Americans have been increasingly interested in implementing a law that requires all voters to provide an ID card before placing their vote. Alabama just passed a law that does just that and provides the ID for free. The logic is simple: If you provide an ID card then that ID will be matched up with your name when you come to vote. You can’t vote as someone else or vote multiple times. Voter fraud is thereby reduced. Sure, there will some people who violate the law and illegally create multiple voter IDs, but at least there will be a step that most people won’t take.
While a voter ID makes sense to most normal people (apparently 75% of Americans agree with a voter ID), but according to the DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, those that want to implement a voter ID want to “drag us all the way back to the Jim Crow” era. She provides no logical explanation except that she did finally backtrack on her words to a more “reasonable” argument:
[S]he still claims that requirements to show ID at the polls – which are designed to cut down on election fraud – are racially discriminatory.
Somehow cutting down on fraud is racist and discriminatory. Oh sure it’s discriminatory . . . discriminatory in the same way that a bank teller asks you for ID to verify that you are the same person whose name is written on the check that you are trying to cash.
People of all races, colors, nationalities, and religions would have to get a voter ID card which leads me to believe that DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is the real racist. According to the actual definition of a racist, Debbie believes that minority races are apparently not on the same level as Caucasians. Conservative Republicans believe that all Americans are equally competent and intelligent to obtain a voter ID card. Debbie Wasserman Schultz does not.
