MERIDIAN — Voter ID law makes sense

    For years, we have heard and read the many opinions, the articles, the many newscasters talk about the pros and cons of the subject of "Voter ID Laws."

    Well, if I may, I would like to put in my two cents. And much that I say is based on historical fact. And, for those who disbelieve, please, read the history. T    he Democrat Party has existed since the early 1790s. It was originally called the Democratic-Republican Party. It was originally for State's Rights and the strict adherence of the U. S. Constitution.

    In the late 1820s, the party split. And ever since than, the Democratic Party has done everything within their power to change the U.S. Constitution. And according to history, it was the Southern white Democrats, before and after the Civil War, that laid the foundation and passed the state and federal laws that promoted and continued the slavery system in America.

    So, what's wrong with a voter ID system? Because, the Democratic Party will not be able to continue the confusion and arguments of division. Because, with a Voter ID Law only those eligible will be able to vote. There will not be any confusion as to who can vote, nor how many times an individual can vote.

    It's like a pictured driver's license. Law enforcement knows who you are, if you are old enough to drive, and if you do have a license in your possession than you can drive.

    With a Voter ID card, once you check in to vote, they check you off, than no one else can use your card, nor just show up and claim to be you to vote. Every U.S. citizen, of the voting age, has the right to vote. But, it is also a privilege to vote. A privilege that can be taken away. So, you have to respect that privilege.

    I will not sale, give away, nor have my right and privilege to vote stolen from me. This is my opinion.

Thank you,

A study by Ohio State University states that eating a candy bar when a person is hungry could prevent fights between husbands and wives because glucose helps with self-control. Do you think this is true?
