    The right to vote is precious, the politicians preach. Our democracy hangs in the balance, the pundits screech.

    yes, but if we all value the sanctity of the voting process so highly, why is it that I've never once been asked to produce indentifcation of any kind in the 16 years I've been a voter, from Ohio to California to Washinton state to Maryland?

    And why is it that we can't protect our elections form people who have no right to vote, no right to be here, and no right to undermine our safety or sovereignty?

    While unhinged Democrats spread fear about the alleged discriminitory disenfranchisement of American citizens, they have supported indiscriminate enfranchisement of untols numbers of foreign outlaws--including suspected alqaeda operatives and terrorist sympathizers.

    Last week, the Columus (Ohio) Dispatch reported that illegal alien Nuradin Abdi--the suspected shopping mall bomb plotter form Somalia--was registered to vote in the battleground state of Ohio by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a left-wing activist group. Also on the Ohio voting rolls: convcited al Qaeda agent Iyman Faris, who planned to sabotage the Brooklyn Bridge and has entered the country fraudulently form Pakistan on a student visa.
    In the battleground state of Florida, indicted terror suspect Sami Al-Arian illegally cast his balot in a Tampa referendum in 1994 while his citizenship application was pending. He claimed the unlawful vote was the result of a "misunderstanding." State oficials declined to prosecute.You've heard about those satirical "10 out of 10 terrorists agree: Anybody But Bush" bumper stickers? There may be more truth to them than you think. John Fund, author of "Stealing Election: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy," reports that at least eight of the 19 Sept.11 hijackers were eligible to vote in Virginia or Florida while they plotted to kill Americans.

    What's to stop the next foreign terrorists plotter from casting a tainted ballot in the nation he has sworn to destroy? Not much. According to the Franklin County Board of Elections, the Dispatch reports, the office simply "takes a person's word, that they're (sic) a U.S. citizen."...........................more

    Bonnie-- your color-coded posts are SO much easier on the eyes than those bold-face 84375384757435-pt font ones.

    I think the problem here is two-fold; first, the registration system is, obviously, extremely flawed, and in need of a country-wide overhaul. Second, I think we need to come down harder on those who attempt to add false/inelligible names to the rolls, on both sides of the line. That being said, there's probably more illegal registration going on on the left this time around, because of the hatred some leftists have for the president.
