Security Rules Ignored
The lamestream media told you:
The millions of students who take the SAT or ACT each year will have to submit photos of themselves when they sign up for the college-entrance exams, under a host of new security measures announced Tuesday in the aftermath of a major cheating scandal on Long Island.
Students have long been required to show identification when they arrive for one of the tests. Under the new rules, they will have to submit head shots of themselves in advance with their test application. A copy of the photo will be printed on the admission ticket mailed to each student and will also appear on the test-site roster. "(School administrators are) going to be able to compare the photo and the person who showed up and say that's either John Doe or that's not John Doe. They didn't have the ability to do that before," the district attorney said.
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
College students will need better ID to take exams than people living in America will need to vote for president of the United States or any other elected office, if certain powerful lobbying groups have their way. Student IDs for exams is already a done deal.
Many democrats and illegal-alien support groups are fighting against common-sense measures to require people to identify themselves when they go to polls to vote. Only citizens are supposed to vote in elections, but it has been shown that illegal aliens and others, including dogs and the dead, are often registered to vote, and sometimes do, sometimes more than once per election.
Vote fraud happens at three steps in the political process. First there's registration, where ineligibles are sometimes registered, or people register in multiple districts. Second, at the polls themselves, ineligibles, illegals, unregistereds and multiple voters can turn up and cast ballots without ID. Finally, during the counting process, numerous problems have been detected with everything from dimpled chads, to electronic-device malfunctions or malfeasance, lost ballot boxes, and deliberate chicanery in the counting process.
The powerful illegal-alien lobby claims that requiring positive ID, or any ID, places an unfair burden on disadvantaged minorities, people of color, underrepresented masses, the poor, welfare cases, the illiterate and the proletariat. Requiring a person to be who they say they are when they vote, will disenfranchise a political underclass, generally supporters of welfare democrats.
Balancing this notion is the controversial movement to restrict voting to only people who pay taxes, since it is their money that hangs in the balance and runs government. People who pay nothing and are "free riders" on the system, should be limited in what they can do to tip the system to their benefit.
A more dramatic and more controversial idea is floating to limit voting to people who understand politics and know what's going on. That, of course, would limit voting to exactly no one, since, despite all the bluster, no one ever really knows what's really going on, not even the president or the smartest person on the planet.
