Walter E Williams: Destroying Your Vote

Election integrity is not racist.   Voter ID laws have been challenged because liberal Democrats deem them racist. I guess that's because they see blacks as being incapable of acquiring some kind of government-issued identification. Interesting enough is the fact that I've never heard of a challenge to other ID requirements as racist, such as those:    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Voter Fraud And Voter I.D.

Democrats keep lying to blacks. One of the biggest voter frauds may be the idea promoted by Attorney General Eric Holder and others that there is no voter fraud, that laws requiring voters to have a photo identification are just attempts to suppress black voting.

Teresa Mull: States' Rights Only Apply To Getting High

Feds don't hesitate to interfere everywhere else.         The federal government is not known for being consistent, except, of course, when it comes to being inconsistent. Staying true to form, the Obama administration has decided randomly to respect states’ rights for once, saying it will not challenge policies put in place by Washington   ... MORE

15 Stupid Things Liberals Call Racism Since Obama Elected

John Fund: When Political Speech Comes Under Fire

What if the truth is politically incorrect?   This month an unnamed private family foundation, apparently concerned with the integrity of elections, paid for 145 billboards in Ohio and Wisconsin. The boards featured a picture of a judge’s gavel and a simple message: “Voter Fraud Is a Felony — up to 3½ years and a $10,000 fine.” That’s it.        ... MORE

Star Parker: Voter Rights Are Not Free

Just like freedom itself. Engraved large on one of the walls of the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC are the words “Freedom is not free.” It is sad that so many are unable or unwilling to appreciate the truth of this simple phrase or are ready to heed those who have or seek power who distort it. I cannot think of ...

Peter Ferrara: Stealing Our Elections

Why AG Holder and ACORN Obama hate Voter ID.  Columnist David Limbaugh, brother of Rush, asks in a recent column, "Can anyone think of an innocuous reason that President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder oppose state voter ID laws?" The correct answer is definitely "No!"

John Fund: Why We Need Voter-ID Laws Now

Deneen Borelli: Why Voter ID Should Matter To All Of Us

What's more important than the integrity of the ballot box? The Rev.
