Lack of Voter ID laws are an endorsement for voter fraud.

What fraud? 18 instances of voter fraud have been confirmed in Texas since 2002.

18. Boy, that's the way to sway some elections in which *millions* have voted. Everyone knows it's a virtually non-existent problem. The only purpose for these new voter ID laws is vote suppression. Period.

There were over 800 gun-related homicides in Texas in just one year, yet calls for things like closing the "gun show loophole" are met with howls of protest about how our rights are being trampled.

As for the war on women? Yeah, that too:

117th District Court Judge Sandra Watts was flagged for possible voter fraud because her driver’s license lists her maiden name as her middle name, while her voter registration form has her real middle name. This was the first time she has ever had a problem voting in 49 years. “What I have used for voter registration and for identification for the last 52 years was not sufficient yesterday when I went to vote,” she said.

Call 'em whatever you want, but voter ID laws are voter suppression. Anyone paying attention couldn't honestly say otherwise.
