Photo ID OK
To the Editor: RE: Congressman files suit to stop Texas voter ID law
Yes, it's true.
Democrat congressman Marc Velsey of Fort Worth and 7 others filed a federal lawsuit to stop Texas voter law to make it mandatory to show photo ID to vote. They say its discriminating against minorities.
I don't know how that could be true. There are lots of businesses that ask for photo ID when making purchases. How could that be offending to anyone? It's protecting us all even when our ID's could have been stolen.
I believe there are a number of places that offer photo ID's at a nominal fee.
It is a must this voter ID is defended. Our vote is our right and it is one of the most important rights we have.
Come on folks, put forth some effort and we all can make this happen. There are still many countries in the world that doesn't have the right to vote, they would give anything to have it.
Let's be thankful for our great country.
