It has just gotten harder to vote in America if you are a minority, poor or a senior citizen.

A man without a vote is man without protection.
~Lyndon B. Johnson       

It has just gotten harder to vote in America if you are a minority, poor or a senior citizen.  A number of states, all Republican led or controlled, have pushed voter reform making it much more difficult for people to vote.  These states have made voting contingent on photo identification.  They have done this in the name of voter fraud.  Statistics point out that since 2000 there have been possibly 10 questions of voter fraud across the country, 10 in twelve years.  This is making laws for a problem that virtually doesn't exist.  The real reason for this is that the poor, the aged and minorities would be those most effected by this legislation.  The very people that Republicans see as Obama voters. 
In the past politicians have always encouraged the American people to get out and vote.  Now we see the Republican led states and legislators fighting to deny millions of Americans the vote.  This is cheating and dirty politics.  Romney should refute this tactic as dishonest and un-American but he won't.
Just as he won't release his taxes.  Why won't he release his taxes?  Maybe due to the tax amnesty offered a few years ago to people who violated American law and were hiding money in foreign banks in violation of American tax law.
