Right on Target: The PA Voter ID Law Was Upheld

Because of the Voter ID law, today, I am proud to be an American.

OK, I am going to say the following as politely as I can. Today's ruling by a Pennsylvania Judge to uphold the state voter ID law is a victory not only for the state of Pennsylvania but a victory for every American citizen who is interested in justice and fairness for all people.

Despite the cries of liberal democrats and civil rights groups who continue to claim that the new voter ID law disenfranchises minorities, the poor, etc., of this country, the opposite is true. The new PA Vioter ID law should be a standard for the entire United States because it protects all people equally.

And let me just say this, who among us is not interested in justice and fairness?  Because this is exactly what this law does for Pennsylvanians as well as every American citizen living in this country.

I wrote about the Voter ID law long before today's decision in Harrisburg. As a result of my commentary, I received hundreds of comments, most of them, crying foul and offering no good reason for not wanting the law passed. 

As an independent minded individual, I am often amazed when someone opposes an issue without offering any legitimate explanation for their opposition.  

Americans today, can celebrate because with the new voter ID law it protects the sacred principle that is "our vote."  A principle shared by every living American citizen democrat and republican alike.

Our vote must be protected at all costs because it is the single most important aspect of our democracy. Today, I am proud be an American but, more importantly, I am proud to have lived in Pennsylvania for the past 55 years. What a country is the United States of America!
