Allowing Voting ID or Voting Fraud

People who oppose voter ID push one of two scenarios of why we don't need it;
1st, they claim it is to suppress the "voting minority", 2nd, they claim there is no fraud, both of these claims are ludicrous but may show the real reason. No matter what side you are on, you need to step back and ask yourself; What would be the pros and cons of requiring a voter ID.

1st, anyone can go get a photo ID in any of the 50 states for voting no matter your race so if you really are interested in voting, take yourself to the appropriate place and get one of the required or acceptable photo IDs. Everyone who goes are subject to the same scrutiny and process so there is not a drop of truth that it is to suppress the minority. The NAACP is one of the stanch opponents against voter ID; the funny and hypocritical part of this worthless organization which divides our country is that the NAACP required marchers protesting North Carolina voter ID law to show, you guessed it, a photo ID to march. So let me get this strait; an ID is required to assemble for a protest but not when exercising the most important gift given to us by the US Constitution, voting. Does anyone see the irony here?

2nd, they claim you can't have voter fraud or there is no fraud. The New York City’s watchdog, Department of Investigations (DOI), during the last election sent undercover agents to 63 polling places. These agent in no way should have been able to vote but 61 of the 63 were allowed to vote, that is a 97% failure rate of the polling stations catching an illegal voter. Does this make you feel good? In Michigan, a state audit shows 1,500 dead people and prisoners casted votes. In Long Island New York while just starting to investigate, they have found 270 dead people who voted in Nassau County after dying, includes a man who voted 14 times since his death. In the midst of the over voter ID fight, to return integrity to Walthall County Mississippi, a federal court decree ordered Walthall County to purge its voter rolls after having 124% more registered voters than voting-age-eligible residents. Could an extra 24% of people voting swing an election? But we have more problems then just dead people voting.

Florida election officials were denied help by the Attorney General to confirm citizenship status (and voter fraud) for an estimated 180,000 illegal immigrants registered to vote in Florida. In 2011, Colorado’s secretary of state found by comparing drivers’ licenses that Colorado had potentially as many as 16,270 non-citizens on its voting rolls. In Florida in 2012, illegal alien voters along with immigrants that are prohibited from voting (i.e. convicted felons) were detected voting. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced Wednesday that his office found non-citizens illegally cast ballots in the 2012 presidential election and has referred the case for to the justice department for prosecution; nothing was done. On the other hand, law enforcement officials have charged 12 people with using absentee ballots to skew an election in Georgia. I think we can safely say we need voter IDs to prevent voter fraud but ask yourself again; why wouldn't someone want voter ID.

The only real logical reason is so a particular group can win election. These groups do not care about the law, the rights of others, the US Constitution, or what is best for our country; they only care about getting elected by any means, legal or illegal, necessary. I guess you can say this is fraud by definition, or stealing, but what it truly is, is treason by definition because it is the betrayal and/or disloyalty to the United States and the US Constitution who these mostly elected officials are sworn to uphold. SO the end of it is, if your political figure doesn't want an ID required to vote, you need a new official.
