In a surprise move, President Trump acting through the DOJ has withdrawn opposition to the Texas voter ID law. This means that it is likely the state of Texas will be bringing in laws to enforce the presentation of ID when voting. Not surprisingly, Democrats are furious. The MSM are calling it an assault on minority voters, while those on social media are pointing out that getting an ID is not difficult and that ID is required for almost every service in modern America.
As reported in the YoungCons:
I don’t know anyone who is so poor that they can’t get an ID. In fact, because you need an ID for so many basic things in life it’s virtually impossible to imagine someone who wouldn’t have one. But even that can be resolved if you provide possibility of free or subsidized IDs as some states do.
The only reason that a party would be against an ID would be if you thought that your voters couldn’t legitimately vote in the election either because they were illegal aliens or unable for other reasons to vote legally.
Democrat activist are calling it an attack on Black and Hispanic people. Those that are for Voter ID are saying “The Democrats are angry ’cause it will make it more difficult for them to cheat come election time”.
