A man without a vote is man without protection. ~ Lyndon B. Johnson
From Daily Caller: “…Kierra Fontae Leache, Shelia Romona Hodges and Brandon Earl Mclean each admitted to casting two ballots in recent elections. Local reports indicate all three voted for President Barack Obama twice in 2008.
According to ABC News Channel 11 in Raleigh-Durham, authorities have placed the three on $10,000 bonds.
The North Carolina Republican Party says this kind of fraudulent voter behavior is why the state needs a voter ID law. In July, Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue vetoed state Republicans’ latest attempt at instituting such a law, calling it an “obstacle” to constitutional principles…” Read here: Voting not just once, but twice for Obama is really dumb and not asking for ID is even dumber.
Not to worry, there’s no voter fraud according to the Democratic Party.
When Arizona passed their Proposition 200 requiring people present identification before registering to vote, the 9th Circuit struck it down though they did agree to an ID requirement before voting. Given the high number of illegals in Arizona, my guess is illegals are voting.
Some would have us believe it’s bigotry to keep illegals from voting or insinuate a minority is illegal. That attitude is an attack on our freedoms. It’s an abuse of the rights of the individual. Ayn Rand said it well, “Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual).”
A number of Republican states have passed laws requiring (photo) voter ID’s when registering to vote. The DNC feels it’s the return of Jim Crow laws. Really? Really? Is it that difficult to get a photo ID? It’s too much to ask? My mother didn’t drive and she managed to get herself down to Motor Vehicle and get a photo ID at age 80 without help from anyone.
How are minorities and poor people prejudiced against if they have to get a photo ID? They can’t get down to the Motor Vehicle Department? This is a straw man argument.
On the matter of voter ID’s, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz said: “The assistant attorney general for civil rights, Tom Perez, has assured Americans and members of Congress that the “Voting Section” is looking very closely at the laws that have recently passed. They’ve acknowledged the concern that both I and others have expressed about the potential for these laws to have an undue and disproportionate impact on racial minorities and the poor. I trust that Tom Perez and Attorney General Eric Holder are reviewing these laws very seriously.”
Debbie is either ignorant or she’s very ignorant.
Jim Crow laws, which existed between 1876-1965, were horrendous and racially segregated people in public facilities, calling it “separate but equal.” Behind those laws were far more Democrats than Republicans. Please read a brief history here.
Asking that voters be citizens and vote once is not segregation. Jim Crow laws and requiring legal voter registration are two separate issues which have nothing to do with each other.
If we lose our vote, we lose our freedom. That’s bad for all races of people within our boundaries.
