Voter ID Requirements Aren't Bigotry

John Fund highlights the argument -- beloved on the left -- that voter ID laws are tantamount to bigotry. What silliness. Surely the liberals don't mean to imply that people of color care less than others about making sure that only those legally entitled to vote actually do so?

In any case, it strikes me that real voter ID laws should be in place before Congress does anything to offer any kind of legal status to millions of illegal immigrations. Voting rights are one of the most precious perquisites of citizenship, and it's wrong to erode them because of self-interested and ridiculous allegations of bigotry.

The left like the dead to vote early and often. Now they want non-citizens to vote early and often. Soon there will be taxation without representation.

Given the extensive fraud alleged by Democrats during the past two presidential elections, they ought to be 100% behind this measure. That they are instead whining like an Indy car engine at full throttle reveals their true feelings: GOP fraud is bad. Democrat fraud is good. Or to turn a phrase: it depends on whose Gore is getting oxed.
