College students making blasphemous remarks about having to obtain legal documents, a government-issued photo identification to vote, should learn quickly that certain rules are necessary to ensure your God-given right to safety and freedom. Now that it’s on the table that voter fraud has been acknowledged as true, then why wouldn’t we work to protect a voter’s identity?
“Admitting that voter fraud exists, Rep. Larry Hall, D-Durham, said the occurrences were miniscule,” according to WRAL.com.
How does he know? And why wouldn’t we want to take the proper steps to promote a democracy where people respect their rights and not outwardly abuse them? Currently there’s no proof in terms of how much and how often voter fraud occurs. Here’s a lesson, if everything in life has been handed to you, good luck. Hurdles are part of everyday life. And, it’s your choice to be apathetic, as well as to not follow laws, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be consequences.
“Courtney Scott, a student at Shaw University and a resident of Georgia, said the law could lead to apathy among out-of-state students who have to go through hurdles to prove their identity to get a state-issued photo ID,” WRAL.com reports.
Where do we draw the line on liberty and intrusion, or should we throw caution to the wind and let go of what has made this country what it is? If your greatest concern is the 2012 election, it’s good to know that some of our leaders only care about holding onto power and not protecting the rights of the constituents who they represent.
