We need Voter ID laws now! – Tea Party Nation

If the videos James O’Keefe has done are not enough to convince people that we need voter ID laws, a new report from the Miami Herald should convince all but the insanely partisan, who want to see Obama win at all costs.
From the Miami Herald:
Thousands of foreign citizens — particularly in South Florida — might be registered to vote in Florida and could have unlawfully cast ballots in previous elections.
The potential problem is largest in Florida’s largest county: Miami-Dade, where the elections supervisor is examining 2,000 potentially unlawful voters, WFOR-CBS 4 News reported Tuesday. Broward is examining 260 suspected foreign voters. One suspected noncitizen voter has been registered for about 40 years, CBS 4 found.
Over the past year, the Florida Division of Elections has begun identifying potential foreigners on the rolls in coordination with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Division of Elections spokesman Chris Cate told The Miami Herald. He said the state has forwarded the names to county elections supervisors, who are in charge of the rolls.
“There will be more names,” Cate said.
The discovery of potentially unlawful voters is sure to fuel the partisan debate over voter fraud and voting rights. With 1.2 million registered voters in Miami-Dade, 2,000 potentially ineligible voters might not seem like a big number. However, it is more than enough to swing a close election in a state like Florida, where the 2000 presidential election was decided in favor of George W. Bush by 537 votes.
This is why laws like Motor Voter that allow instant registration are extremely bad laws. Of course the liberals want those laws because the only way they can win many elections is through fraud.
This is not the first time we have seen allegations of non-citizens voting.
From the Greely Gazette, May 27, 2011:
In last year’s Senate race nearly 5000 illegal aliens cast their vote in the election.
The revelation comes from Colorado Secretary of State, Scott Gessler. Testifying before the House Administration Committee, Gessler said his department conducted a study comparing the state’s voter registration database against driver’s license records.
After doing so they discovered 12,000 illegal aliens living in the state who were registered to vote. Of these, 5,000 actually cast votes in the last election.
Gessler told Rep. Gregg Harper, the panel’s Republican chairman, the study was a ‘disturbing wake-up call” and hoped it would prompt every state to verify its procedures to prevent illegal voting.
Responding to the report, Harper stated, “We simply cannot have an electoral system that allows thousands of non-citizens to violate the law and vote in our elections. We must do more to protect the integrity of our electoral processes.”
We know the Party of Treason is going to pull out all the stops to try and steal this election. We must stand up and prevent this from happening. If we cannot trust our elections, then this nation is finished.
The Democrats oppose Voter ID laws for one reason only. It prevents vote fraud. We must stop them this year and we must get Voter ID laws in all 50 states.
