Letter: Outrageous attack on election system

| November 2, 2008 11:00 PM

Dear Editor:

The Democratic Party platform for 2008 contains the following plank: 'We oppose laws that require identification in order to vote or register to vote.'

Dare we turn our nation over to a political party which fears law and order so much that they will not use it to protect the validity of our right to vote, possibly giving that crucial majority vote over to our nation's enemies?

If they don't want laws which protect our right to choose our leaders, what kind of laws will that party pass if they control both the presidency and the Congress? Not Constitutional laws, obviously; not laws which protect us from terrorists; not laws which preserve the equality of all at the ballot box; not even laws which protect our free-enterprise system from the ravages of socialism. We missed that chance when we elected FDR.

Yes. I do mean 'we.' I've been around a while. In all my years of voting, poll watching and being a candidate, this is the most outrageous attack on our American election system that I have ever seen. One has to ask, 'Who proposed that plank and why?'
