ABC's Cokie Roberts


Who would have ever though that in this nation there would be such a misplaced and perplexing outcry over simply showing some kind of an ID to prove who you are when you go vote. There are many instances in life when we have to prove who we are such as sometimes using a credit card, buying alcohol if you are young, cashing a check at the bank if you are not a regular customer, some bars, picking up some parcels of mail, visiting people at hospitals and many other situations.

With the numerous frauds that are rampant these days, and we're not even talking about voter fraud, there is much more of a need to be able to prove who you are. That is an integral part of living in the society we are currently blessed with, but heaven forbid if you ask someone to sh0w an ID to prove who they are when they vote you become the ire of the keepers of the race card. If you even suggest that requirement you become a target for liberals as being racist, disenfranchising underprivileged voters and even according to ABC's Cokie Roberts you are, "downright evil."

Basic, sound reasoning has gone out of political discussion. If you disagree with your opponent you must face character assassination that of course has nothing to do with your argument. As liberal democrats try every trick in the book to expand their voter base and even have some RINO Republicans on their side with so-called immigration reform, and decades of wealth redistribution that still hasn't solved the problems they said it would, it becomes even more important to be able to identify who real, genuine and qualified voters are.

Sadly, Cokie Roberts thinks that is evil.

On This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning, Cokie Roberts attacked the GOP’s recent slew of legislation increasing voting restrictions as “downright evil,” and argued that it threatened to undue the progress made since the civil rights movement.

“Having grown up in the deep south in the era of Jim Crow, the difference is dramatic,” Roberts said. “The fact that Andy Young was Mayor of Atlanta and John Lewis is a member of Congress from Georgia, is a great testament to the fact that when you do something like pass a voting rights bill, that it makes a difference.”

“Which is why, at the moment, what’s going on about voting rights, is downright evil,” Roberts continued. “Because it is something that really needs to keep going forward, not backward.”
