Kamala Harris Acts Like Photocopying Your ID Is Equivalent To Splitting An Atom

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Kamala Harris stated that there are a lot of people in rural communities who don’t have access to a Kinko’s or Office Max and somehow that’s an impossible requirement to request of said people.

I don’t know about you guys, but virtually everyone I’ve ever met who is on welfare (Food Stamps, Section 8 Housing, etc.) always has the newest iPhone and designer bags. Pretty sure the whole phone deal was implemented under the Obama Administration.

Smart phones have replaced a plethora of resources and have made tasks that used to be a hassle, such as making a photocopy of your ID, as easy as a click of a button in the comfort of your own home. Perhaps an online database to simply upload a photo of your ID could have been added, but they didn’t think of that in time (I’m also opposed to electronic voting, but that’s a point for another time) …it also would’ve been a better point for Harris to make during this particular interview.

Coming from a poverty-stricken childhood myself, I understand how difficult it can be to locate your nearest library or Kinko’s to handle necessary paperwork, especially without a readily available vehicle to use. However, let’s evaluate the risks and benefits, shall we?

We have:

  1. Fraud that could be (and has been) committed due to not requiring voter ID.
  2. The small percentage of individuals who can’t vote, who would otherwise legally be able to, due to not having a copy of their ID.

I wish all people had equal ease of access to resources for these matters. Local government should work on improving this, as opposed to doing away with the means that ensure a totally legal and fair outcome.

Watch this and let us know what you think –
