Recently, a gentleman from Apache Junction wrote “Keeping a Citizen from Polls,” a heartfelt note condemning the currently debated voter registration laws. Sir, the laws were not enacted to prevent your 88-year-old grandmother from voting, and I’m sorry that she can’t. It was enacted to keep the hoards of foreign nationals that hide within our borders from pushing their wills on the rest of us. As has been too often demonstrated by the marches and protests, these people seem to think that because they are here, they have the rights of those that belong here. Several states have given out IDs and driver’s licenses often enough in the past (and enough have been forged) to make them not viable for identification on their own. If the rules were not there, there would be a mad rush to the polls to impel the will of the illegals on the real citizens. I’m sorry your granny can’t vote but that is not the issue.
