“Corporate leaders line up against voting laws” (Page 1, April 15) chronicles hundreds of our nation’s large corporations conspiring against states’ rights and ability to set voting laws as set forth in the U.S. Constitution.
Let’s just consider one point of this tirade: voter ID.
I would surmise that none of these companies would sell a product or service to anyone or any company that is not, in person, paying with cash without some type of specific ID. Every one of these companies is not only advocating no-excuse, absentee voting but is also advocating no requirements for the absentee (i.e., not in-person) voters to produce some sort of ID to prove they are who they claim to be.
But, they may say, there is no money involved. Well, I argue that the whole of the U.S. Treasury is involved. When we vote, we elect people who write our tax laws and our budgets, so the stability of our country is in our hands. The least we should have to do to protect our country is prove we are who we claim to be, helping to keep fraudulent acts in the voting system to a minimum.
I know of no big or small bank that would give me any money, from anyone’s account, without my proving I am the account holder. We can’t be any less vigilant with our U.S. Treasury (our big bank).
