It was merely a comment, a reply, not even a full throated post on Twitter.
Shannon Bream of FoxNews’ ratings’ dominant prime time line-up had linked a post about a headline of an election related story in Ohio.
@ShannonBream: “Well, that’s an interesting headline: 170 Voters in Ohio Race `Over 116 Years Old,” World’s Oldest Person is 115.
Generating, as you can imagine it would, thousands of replies, I decided to add a simple one.
@KMCRadio: “If you oppose voter ID you’re unAmerican.”
Simple and to the point.
Twitter didn’t seem to think so. The arguments they made in response ran the gamut but the gist of them had to do with me being racist, elitist, and in some way attempting to throttle the possibility of a free electorate from participating in our grand republic.
They also seem to repeat the old meme about the lack of any need for Voter ID because there could not possibly be any attempt at voter fraud in 2018.
Now mind you if you checked out even a fourth of those commenting’s twitter feeds you’d find people wholesale buying into the idea that President Trump could commit fraud in the election cycle. They firmly believe that somehow Russia could sway exclusively rust belt democrats to vote against a woman who didn’t even campaign for their votes. And they-to a person-believed that the high dollar, one sided, special council investigation should continue through to its conclusion.
But could “voter fraud” occur in places like Ohio in 2018?
“Absolutely not,” their consensus.
Amanda Prestigiacomo reported this week that a northeastern Georgia precinct had nearly twice as many ballots cast in their primary elections in May, as there were total registered voters. The source on the Ohio numbers in that state’s 12th Congressional District was Eric Eggers, research director for the Government Accountability Institute-a good government outside group seeking to (as odd as it may sound) hold government accountable.
Evidently there is still an open investigation into voter fraud hanging over the Atlanta mayoral runoff from last December. And last may Ohio election officials cited voter fraud cases numbering more than 50 incidents from the 2016 elections.
Old Dominion University in Virginia completed a study in 2017 claiming more than 6% of adults who are non-citizens and living in the United States likely voted in 2016. That equates to more than 1 million illegally cast votes.
But whether or not it actually happens isn’t the point.
The point that should bother every true American-is merely-that it could.
In America we value things uniquely in our experience that other nations may not. In America we hold a certain sacredness to the process of the people speaking, deciding, determining, and governing. We esteem certain moral values in our founding documents. And all who become Americans should agree to these same ideals.
Because to not do so, and here it is, is to be “Un”-American.
Somewhere along the line, and maybe it was just hearing that screeching soundbyte over and over again of Hillary Clinton declare “that we have a right to dissent, and that to dissent is the essence of what it means to be American” we started believing that being against America was included in the definition.
But who believes that?
In our founding we reaffirm the worth and dignity of the human individual. We affirm that self determination for them (and each of us) will lead us to a more prosperous and better tomorrow simply because it is the individual relying upon the gifts and skills his Creator endowed him with.
Self determination shows up in no more important place than in our sacred voting booth. A place that is not intended, nor even allowed for those who are not citizens. A place that is unwelcome to those who have not taken the legally required step to swear allegiance first and foremost (as it pertains to nations and governments here on earth) to exclusively these United States.
This land is not a blank page, her people are not empty suits, and her resources are not a blank check.
Yet all of those and many other issues are directly determined by the sacredness of the act in the voting booth.
It is worth mentioning that it is equally unAmerican to have the right to vote and to not do so. Yet even in that you are expressing a self determination that you will live with the consequences of.
Requiring Voter ID in order to vote in our elections does nothing more than confirm the identity of who is casting that vote.
We’ve all seen and easily dismissed the claims that IDs are too hard to get, too difficult to obtain, too expensive, or too racially problematic.
Not ONE of those reasons is real.
Simply compare them to the access people have to IDs when they merely wish to operate an automobile and the fainting and crying comes to an end.
Voter IDs may not guarantee that as many people will vote in the next election as did the last. Maybe that’s a good thing.
But Voter IDs will guarantee that every vote cast is cast by a citizen of this nation and that will make the integrity of the process soar.
And adding more integrity to the ethic of our elections is definitively a pro-American thing to do.
Ran across this in my E-Mail today and it is so on the money I knew I had to share it. Please read it all and . . . . well read it. By the way it is from the Townhall website

Mention Ronald Reagan to a liberal and you need to prepare for a freak out. The man passed away 14 years ago and hasn’t occupied the Oval Office in nearly 30, but his name still has the ability to elicit rage from leftists simply because he existed.
And so it goes with the activist wing of the political left – they are like the Terminator, unable or unwilling to stop, even long after the focus of their anger has passed on. That’s because liberals don’t have any interest in defeating conservative ideals, they want to destroy conservatives for daring to hold them.
Rush Limbaugh has been on the radio for 30 years, Sean Hannity on the radio and Fox News for more than 20, Mark Levin more than 10, and there hasn’t been a day in at least the last decade where they weren’t under assault from some tentacle of the left-wing outrage machine. They’ve been unable to beat them with liberal hosts, so they’ve spent untold millions trying to destroy them.
Out-of-context quotes and flat-out lies fed to fellow travelers with press credentials are liberal’s weapons of choice. They have failed miserably, but they haven’t slowed one bit.
Beyond talk radio, the existence of Fox News is something liberals are fighting every day to end. A significant portion of what is broadcast on CNN and MSNBC are clips of Fox, as they play clips of opinion hosts giving their opinions and pretending they’re arbiters of truth “correcting the record.” Those networks owe Fox a royalty for using so much of their content.

What’s funny is how the “journalists” at CNN and MSNBC disagree with the opinions on Fox while acting like they’re somehow not giving opinions themselves. Chris Hayes and Rachel Maddow aren’t “news” programs, they’re liberal opinion shows. Citing lies of Media Matters and Think Progress in a monotone drone doesn’t make something news, it’s simply double-spun bias.
I have no problem with bias, everyone is biased. I have a problem with people pretending they aren’t biased, they just happen to agree down-the-line with Democrats in some sort of cosmic coincidence. Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, etc., don’t hide what they believe, they wear their conservatism proudly, and they defend it. Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper declare themselves referees while wearing a blue uniform under their striped shirts and whistles.
When a conservative does say something liberals pounce on, deservedly so or an out-of-context smear, these arbiters of truth never simply present the alternate view or correct the record, they rally their mob to demand someone be fired. Rush, Sean, Mark, and Laura have all been the focus of boycotts by the leftist mob for what ultimately was the crime of being too effective at defining and defending their beliefs.
The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, etc., regularly get stories wrong, sometimes big stories, and routinely offend conservatives and moderates, yet, aside from fleeting tweets and comments, they don’t face a torrent of professional protesters calling for their firing. The old adage rings true – liberals want to shut conservatives up, conservatives want liberals to keep talking. But they don’t just want to shut conservatives up, they want to destroy everything about them.
When Limbaugh, Hannity, or Levin eventually retire they will be given the Reagan treatment, with liberals cursing the fact that they ever existed for all time. It’s a perverted sort of eternal life that will actually drive many people to investigate who these “monsters” were, leading to their words and ideals to live on long after them.
So why do this? First, they really can’t help themselves. Liberals hate. You can add damn near anything after the word “hate” and as long as it isn’t something liberal it’d be an accurate statement. But more importantly, liberal leaders need to keep the mob angry, and scared.
There’s a great line in the movie Men In Black where Will Smith asks Tommy Lee Jones why they just don’t tell the world aliens exist, that “people are smart, they can handle it.” Jones responds, “A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it.” That’s where liberals live. They need to keep people angry or scared to prevent them from thinking logically, rationally and, most frighteningly for liberals, for themselves.
Emotion always overrides logic.
Think of all the dumb things you’ve done or said while angry or after just stubbing your toe on a coffee table and imagine being that way all the time. That’s where liberals need to keep their voters, and that’s why you see marches and protests on a near weekly basis since the 2016 election. Liberals need to keep their base misinformed and emotional to keep them motivated. If that means lying, then they will lie. If that means dancing on someone’s grave, then they will dance.
Leftists will not let truth, facts or, as the reaction to the impending death of Charles Krauthammer demonstrated, common decency stand as an impediment to achieving their agenda. The only thing they won’t do is work to convince people. They know they can’t, voters have repeatedly rejected them. So they choose emotion as a weapon. They won’t debate you, but they will try to destroy you if you stand against them. Don’t let them deter you, just return that favor come November.
I expose all these tactics and lies in my book, out Tuesday, called, “Outrage, INC: How the Liberal Mob Ruined Science, Journalism, and Hollywood.” Be a hero and order a copy today, I’ll be eternally grateful and you’ll be informed and entertained.
As I have documented repeatedly, the left ruins just about everything it touches: the universities, the arts, the elementary schools and high schools, religion, sports and ordinary, everyday interactions between human beings — especially human beings of different races. The latest examples — in just the last few weeks — are the Boy Scouts, sculpture and the Miss America pageant.
The left’s decades long attempt to radically change the Boy Scouts has ended in triumph. Now that the Boy Scouts is admitting not only older girls but also younger girls — as Cub Scouts — it is dropping “Boy” from its name and becoming Scouts BSA. Thanks to the left, the Boy Scouts, one of the most socially and morally constructive organizations in America, is no longer the Boy Scouts.
As a result of that, as a result of the decision to admit openly gay males as troop leaders (the Boy Scouts never asked potential troop leaders about their sexual orientation but did not allow openly gay troop leaders) and as a result of factors specific to the Mormon church, the largest sponsor of Boy Scout troops in America, the church has ended its 100-year relationship with the Boy Scouts.
Another victim of the left in recent weeks is the arts. Last week, The New York Times published a serious “review” on a major new “art work” at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The “art work” is a set of four giant piles of sculpted excrement. As described by Times writer Nina Siegal: “I walked into the excrement.
The artistic left is infatuated with feces, urine and menstrual blood. Last year, New York City’s famed Guggenheim Museum featured an all-gold toilet bowl into which visitors were invited to relieve themselves. As the exhibit was titled “America,” one could then literally urinate and defecate on America. Why not? The left does that to America and Western civilization every day.
The latest victim of the left is the Miss America contest. The Miss America board announced that contestants will no longer wear swimsuits or evening gowns because Miss America will no longer be about physical beauty. It will be about “the hopes and aspirations” of 52 women contestants.
My first reaction is: Why stop there? To be consistent with its new ideals, the event should no longer be televised but rather broadcast on the radio. Only then will the contestants’ looks be truly irrelevant.
The left, which has brought “sex week” to almost every college campus, which has introduced coed dormitories with coed showers and bathrooms, and which has told young women that sex without any commitment should be as much fun for them as it is for men, is now the guardian of modesty at the Miss America contest.
In particular, feminists hate it when women try to look sexy, especially in the eyes of men.
One of the left’s favorite terms to describe the Miss America swimsuit competition (and even the evening gown competition) is “dehumanizing.” In a long article on the Miss America decision, The New York Times quoted Julie Zeilinger, who founded “a feminist blog called FBomb”: “in 2018 this organization has realized it’s dehumanizing to compare and judge women’s bodies in front of a vast, international audience.”
This feminist charge is ubiquitous but never explained. Why is it dehumanizing?
One irony is feminists have argued for decades that women should be allowed to walk around topless, just as men can.
Another irony is that when non-Muslims argue that Muslim women wearing a chador is dehumanizing, the left charges them with intolerance and Islamophobia.
A third irony is women are as interested in seeing beautiful women in swimsuits as men are.
I was raised in an Orthodox Jewish home, and I recall my mother and father enjoying the Miss America pageant every year. They would discuss their favorites with each other, both of them perfectly at peace with the proceedings, as was the Christian majority.
Which raises a final irony: When America was far more conservative, far more religious and far more concerned with daily modesty in dress, and when it insisted that male students and female students reside in separate dorms at college, it celebrated the Miss America pageant with its swimsuit competition. That was a healthier America.
Inside of a few weeks, the left has gravely damaged the Boy Scouts, probably destroyed the Miss America pageant and pounded another nail into the coffin of art.
That’s what the left does best – ruins whatever it touches. That’s pretty much all it does.
This is a reppost from a website called Quora. I appologize for the cursewords contained in this but I felt that the message was well worth reading it.
For God damn sure we should stop teaching them that they “deserve” anything. You don’t deserve shit in the world that you don’t go out there and get it for yourself. We now have an entire generation of kids who are now in the workplace that have grown up with “not keeping score because someone’s feelings will get hurt if they lose” and “participation trophies for everyone”. Well, I have a reality check and a wake up call for everyone, there is no such thing as a “participation trophy” for life and second place is still the first loser. You all need to purge yourself of this bullshit progressive idealism that you were spoonfed as a child and realize that if you don’t get off your ass and make a significant contribution to the world in some capacity you are going to have a hard fucking life ahead of you. Your mamma and your daddy didn’t want to tell you that shit because they wanted to be your “friend” and not your “parent”, but I am here to tell you, you have been fed a lie all your life and the real world isn’t going to give you a warm fucking hug. It is going to chew your ass up and spit you the fuck out!
