The big Lye: No ID for voting, but photoID for buying draincleaner!

No ID for voting: Would Democrats lie?

But ID for buying a small can of lye.

A bitter confusion.

A basic solution:

Stand up! Campaign hard! Vote the Democrats bye.

 

Asking for Voter I.D. is a NO – NO but you need A Government ID to Buy Drain Cleaner. Asking For I.D. Before Voting Is ‘Racist’, But You Need A Govt. I.D. To Buy Drain Cleaner? Got a clogged drain? Before you can buy that liquid drain cleaner, I need to see some ID.

Does that sound like a joke? It’s not a joke. It‘s the reality in President Obama’s home state. Illinois has a new law that took effect on January 1 requiring all people who purchase drain cleaners or any caustic substances to provide a government issued photo ID. And retailers now must ask for identification from those buying drain cleaners and maintain extensive records of which caustic products have been purchased, in what amounts, and by whom. The law came about after two Illinois women were burned by acid attacks back in 2008. One of the women later admitted to burning herself with acid, but the law was still pushed through the system. And so, because of one random crime where acid was used to burn a victim, thousands of people will be forced to show identification when they purchase drain cleaners, and countless hours of business time will be spent filling out, maintaining and monitoring the government mandated forms associated with each purchase. Additionally, any person carrying caustic chemicals can be charged with a Class 4 felony in Illinois. (Class 4 felonies can carry fines up to $25,000 and 1-3 years in jail.) The Illinois drain cleaner law is just one of the 40,000 new laws that took effect in the new  year. For the record, the 40,000 new laws are a 29% increase over the previous year. Among the mass of new laws are a few that are intended to strengthen election security and protect the integrity of each vote in the upcoming elections by demanding that all voters show a photo ID before entering the voting booth. The Wall Street Journal covered this story as 2011 came to a close… Millions more Americans will be required to show photo identification when they head to the polls in four states in 2012, headlining the welter of new laws across the nation that take effect with the turn of the year. Kansas, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Texas will require voters to prove their identities at the ballot box, bringing the total number of states that require some form of voter identification to 30, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, a bipartisan group that provides research and data to state governments.

So what does the Attorney General and the Obama Administration do? Of all the options available to them they chose to sue South Carolina over their Voter ID Law!
