No taxation without representation. That was the cry that helped end the rule of King George III in America. It became a principle of our democratic government.
President Barack Obama, a professor of constitutional law, had the Democratic Senate pass his Affordable Care Act – perhaps this nation’s largest tax bill – without any Republican representation, thus denying Republican senators and thousands of voters any says in this bill.
When Republicans tried to stop voter fraud, the Democrats held that the right to vote was so dear that no one should be denied the right to vote because of lack of identification. It was their fear that some people because of lack of nobility, infirmity or poverty might be denied identification and that this is a greater threat than voter fraud.
Is this the way a president schooled in constitutional law protects Americans’ right to vote?
