To the Editor:
Last evening I watched the movie “Lincoln.” I fact-checked the allegations made in the movie that Democrats of the 1860s were universally against abolishment of slavery. I found it to be true.
The Republican Party, under Lincoln, not only in 1863 put forth the Emancipation Proclamation but voted to free all Negro slaves then and forever more by passage of the Constitution’s 13th Amendment. Not so the Democratic Party, as it did not support racial equality.
The same phenomenon occurred in the 1960s when the Democratic Party voted against repealing “Jim Crow” laws. I do not understand why minorities vote in lock step for Democrats. The Democrats have never had the best interest of blacks or Hispanics as part of their party platform.
Today, the Democratic Party, under President Obama, is pushing continued enslavement. The Democratic Party is buying votes and loyalty by making all of us more dependent on government handouts. We must stop the enslavement of Americans by finding a way out of the welfare trap. We need employment, not handouts.
Recently, according to several cable news channels, more and more instances of voter fraud by Democrats are coming to the surface. Voters in states Obama narrowly won are being showed voter registrations where the signature showing they voted for Obama is not theirs.
Would these instances of alleged voter fraud change the actual outcome? I do not know. A voter recount in at least three states won by Obama may be in order.
Alleged voter fraud supports arguments for photo voter ID. We must trust while verifying people IDs who vote for our elected officials, as today’s elections are too important to be left to people who cannot verify their identity or citizenship.
