Who is Suppressing Voters?

Sunday letters to the editor of the Sun Sentinel MSM Drones

What's the problem? Don't we all want fair and honest elections? So why imply in your May 30 article that the "big, bad, evil Republicans" are trying to suppress the vote here in Florida by requiring a voter ID?

Tell me, with a straight face, why is it voter suppression if a potential voter has to prove, by a photo ID, that he/she is the person who wants to vote under that name on the voter rolls? The people who are raising a ruckus over this are mainly Democrats — why?

Do they think they are going to lose votes this coming November if voters who are purged are not eligible to vote? They claim that this is unfair to the poor and minorities. Really? If the poor and some minorities can go down to the local welfare or Social Security offices to collect benefits, is it a stretch to ask them to go get their "free" voter registration ID's at another government office?

Stop pandering and get real, U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch and U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings. Don't create a problem when there isn't one.
