I support the idea of one person, one vote. I also believe that governments have constitutions to protect society from people who try to take more than their fair share. It would be nice if we could all play happy and nice, but it is the human lot to be tempted. So, until we are all angels in heaven, I support checks and balances of power, including Governor Pat McCrory’s “sweeping, sweeping, sweeping” changes to North Carolina law to require voter ID, eliminate same-day voter registration, and shorten the early voting period.

In fact, when I first voted down here, I showed the lady at the table my driver’s license and was rather confused when she hastily told me to put it away. And, for the record, McCrory has also shared his intentions to make it easier for non-drivers to get state ID cards.
