I got a chuckle when I read Saturday’s paper.
On the front page of the Tarrant section was Democrat Lon Burnam claiming voter registration fraud, and in the letter section was Fort Worth resident David Perkins who out of principle refused to show his driver’s license.
I traveled out of state over Memorial Day weekend and I had to show ID to get on the plane, rent a car, make a credit card purchase and show ID when my hotel room key malfunctioned.
Resident Perkins, I suppose out of principal, would not have traveled nor enjoys the protection of credit card theft (he must pay cash).
Never miss a local story.
Perkins and others like him ruin it for the people that do need help.
In today’s society I am sure that family, neighbors, church and a list of other outlets would go out of thier way to help the folks who cannot register on their own for a form of voter ID!
That’s what good people in this great country do!

Mr. Perkins must feel isolated and left out of “decent” society most of the time, especially when you try to get a job or to open a checking account or try to cash a check or get a passport, purchase a new car, get car insurance, or try to purchase an airplane ticket or go through security at the airport or heaven forbid get stopped by the police (refuse to show your ID and you will get plenty of isolation).
Citizens of the United States have a right to expect voters to show a picture ID to prove who they are.
The people who fight Voter IDs are those who may not be able to win elections without those illegal votes. Think about it, show your ID and take pride in the fact that the our country is doing everything we can to keep fraud out of our elections.
Picture IDs are the least of your problems in todays world.
Find a worthy cause to support, they are all around you. Help people on the outside get an ID.
Meals on Wheels, homeless shelters. They need you.
