The right to vote, to have a say in the governance of our republic, is a right of citizens. And since only U. S. citizens are eligible to vote, it’s only logical that we should be able to verify we are citizens. And since where we’re eligible vote depends on where we reside, it’s only logical that we should be able to prove where we reside. The bottom line: You have to have proper ID for many things; certainly voting should be one of them. Ya’ think?
Although the purpose of the new election laws that have passed in some states including Florida, and have been proposed in others, is to reduce voter fraud, the liberals as usual, are playing the race card. According to a story that appeared in Tampa Bay Online, “…a new Florida election law Republicans say is intended to cut costs and prevent fraud, but that Democrats and civil rights organizations say is aimed at suppressing voter turnout to improve Republican 2012 election chances.” Really?
What’s wrong with this picture?
- Republicans propose and pass new laws to reduce election fraud.
- Democrats, Jesse Jackson and the NAACP protest saying the laws will disenfranchise black and poor voters and claim there isn’t any election fraud.
- Democrats and NAACP officials go to jail for election fraud.
So while people are sitting in jail for proven voter fraud, the Justice Department is busy reviewing every word of every new state voter law. There’s one problem. Pajamas Media reports that according to: “Recently released documents — disclosed by the Obama Justice Department only after a court battle — reveal that the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice is engaging in politicized hiring in the career civil service ranks. Typical Washington behavior, you say? Except the hiring in question is nearly unprecedented in scope and significantly eclipses anything the Bush administration was even accused of doing. And the evidence of the current political activity is far less impeachable than what was behind the libelous attacks leveled at officials from the Bush years.”
When you read this pajamasmedia.com piece, you will see that the attorneys hired into the Division during the tenure of Eric Holder, have literally spent their careers fighting for extremely liberal causes, including their opposition to voter ID laws and verification of citizenship. God help us all.
Author’s note: There are many other facets of the new voter laws, such as reducing the number of early voting days and stricter rules for voter registration groups such as ACORN (yes they’re still around), but they vary from state to state. ADB
