A Thought Blog: Occupy Occupy D.C., Day 15: Make Every Vote CountEli Lilly and its Enduring Love for ObamaCare


On a cold Monday morning, the National Center “Occupy Occupy D.C.” street team hit Freedom Plaza to fight for civil liberties.  In particular, they advocated today to make sure that every vote counts in American elections by making sure that no voter has their ballot stolen from them or cancelled out by a fraudulent voter.


In other words, states are right to enact voter ID requirements at the polls.


If one needs an ID to do so many other things in America, how crazy is it that the solemn and important practice of voting can be so lightly protected?  And why are new protections at the state level being denounced by the liberal establishment?  After all, aren’t liberals the ones so concerned about the voting process in 2000?

Looking at the arguments and the facts, it would seem that the only ones who could be opposed to increasing ballot security are those exploiting the laxity of the system as it is now.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
