Our elections and their integrity should be important to everyone. For some reason very little is required when it comes to identification and many of us have lost trust in our election process. Democrats don’t want to require ID at the polls using the excuse that it would ‘disenfranchise’ minority voters.
The idea has been put forward that those of us who think that’s a good idea are racist and don’t want minorities to vote. Nothing could be further from the truth.
There is an organization called True the Vote (http://www.truethevote.org/) that has been training people to be able to look for and find fraudulent registrations. The full weight of the Federal Government has been brought down on the founder of that organization, Catherine Englebrecht.
Herman Cains says:
Catherine Engelbrecht is a hero in this country, although the federal government probably doesn’t think so and I doubt she’ll be getting the Presidential Medal of Freedom draped around her by Barack Obama. But that’s exactly why she’s a hero – because she has no intention of letting the government treat her as a subject. And that should serve as an inspiration for the rest of us, because we shouldn’t either.
If you don’t know the background, Catherine is the founder of True the Vote, which she established after working as an election volunteer and noticing all kinds of irregularities going on. Her purpose in creating True the Vote was to ensure that elections were fair and not manipulated by fraud.
The left didn’t like that and they retaliated hard against Catherine, making all kinds of accusations against her, which were quickly parroted by the Democrat Party propagandists at MSNBC as well as Democrat members of Congress including Elijah Cummings and Sheila Jackson Lee. And when True the Vote applied for tax-exempt nonprofit status, you can probably guess what happened. Naturally, the IRS came after not only her nonprofit but her business as well. Bringing audits and inquiries that found nothing, they nonetheless fined Catherine and her husband $20,000 – just because they are the IRS and they can!
