It’s hard to argue with Rush Limbaugh’s observation that “The Left will always tell us what they fear.” Remember the way they attacked Sarah Palin and let John McCain talk himself out of winning in 2008? The Left’s never ending investigations of Darrell Issa come to mind as well. Now we’re seeing the Left going full bore against Voter ID laws. What other reason for the immediate lawsuits against these laws could there be?
The Left understands that honest elections kill them. There are some elections Democrats just can’t win without cheating. They buy votes with “free” stuff; they bribe individuals to vote Democrat several times; they disallow absentee ballots from America’s warfighters–even those voting from combat zones; and they bring honest or dishonest results they don’t like to court and ask Democrat judges to overturn them. The sunlight of honest elections is like a cross to Dracula.
This is why they make up ridiculous objections like “the lines are too long when proof of identity must be presented”, or “getting a photo ID is too expensive and time consuming.”
They’ll say anything but the truth, which is that they can’t win without cheating.
Tie these facts to the recent illegal alien swamping of a gate at the border between San Diego and Mexico that saw hundreds of people demanding political asylum using the same phrase: “I have credible proof that my life is in danger from a drug cartel,” and we begin to see that Democrats might be afraid of not getting enough new voters.
Add both of these points to House Republicans’ insisting they will not vote for amnesty; and we might actually be looking at signals that, in spite of Democrat boasts of having “40 to 50 House Republicans ready to vote for amnesty,” maybe for once it’s the Republicans who are telling the truth.
This might be just a fanciful thought on a mid-summer’s day, but one has to wonder why the Democrats would risk roiling us up with the asylum stunt if they knew they could just wait until October, throw the gates open, and blame the Republicans for destroying our border security.
