Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:

Mrs. Atchue recently said, “Not since immediately after the Civil War has there been such a comprehensive attack on democracy and voting rights in our country.” Mrs. Atchue also says that the GOP is the rot that is killing American democracy today. Obviously, she knows that it was the Republican Party that was formed as the anti-slavery party in 1854.

As far as voting goes, 72% in a recent poll favor voter ID. Mrs. Atchue calls this an attack on people of color to make it more difficult to vote. The Democrats are saying that some people are just unable to get an ID to vote, so we can’t mandate this. If you don’t have an ID, you cannot fly on an airline, get a credit card, buy a house, drive a car, apply for Medicare, get Social Security, visit a doctor, adopt a pet, get a phone or fishing license, apply for welfare, get COVID vaccine and on and on.

Of course, the problem is this is a fallacy; many people of color are in fact insulted that they (according to Democrats) are too stupid to figure out how to get an ID. Why doesn’t the media investigate this assertion? People of color not having IDs, thus limiting them from all the wonderful things this country has to offer!

What the Democrat Party wants is those 150,000 illegal border crosses every month, coupled with an estimated already 20 million in country illegally, to be able to vote with no ID required! It’s really not any more complicated than that! Politics over the well-being of this great country. Despite the efforts of America haters, we remain the greatest country in the world! And to that I say “Thank God!”
