Why can't our voter identification system be as good as Mexico's?

This article describes the Mexican voter identification system, which unlike ours, actually verifies a voter's identity. It's interesting that one of the main "arguments", if one can call it that, against voter identification in this country is that it would somehow discriminate against Hispanics, while our Hispanic neighbor to the south uses a system far better than any state in America.

"In Mexico, every registered voter has an official ID card, complete with photograph, fingerprint and a holographic image... When a Mexican voter presents his card, the poll worker looks up his photo to see if it matches up...After voting, the Mexican voter's thumb ink is applied to his thumb. That way, if he shows up at another polling site to vote, they know he's already voted elsewhere."

It's obvious to anyone but clueless liberals that the reason for resisting effective voter ID laws is to facilitate massive voter fraud by the Democratic party. At least since the 1960 presidential election was shifted to Kennedy by vote fraud in Chicago, Democrats have used vote fraud to win closely contested elections.

Their attempt to win Florida in 2000 by inventing new votes was blocked by the Supreme Court, but since then, they've used that same process to "win" the Washington governor's race in 2004, and the just concluded Minnesota Senate race by the clown Al Franken.

Recently, Attorney General Eric Holder denied the state of Georgia the right to verify the citizenship of voters, which will have a chilling effect on any other state which attempts to implement a similar capability. This opens the way to voter registration for millions of illegal aliens, which should be sufficient to move a number of swing states into the Democratic column in future elections.

If Republicans don't get serious about voter identification, and stopping the use of recounts to produce imaginary votes in future elections, we won't have to worry about elections anymore - they'll be mere formalities to provide the illusion of legitimacy to a permanent Democratic one party government.
