The liberals have already started whining about the Supreme Court’s action in overturning part of the unconstitutional, Voting Rights Act. VRA came into existence on the false pretense of protecting a non-existent right. There is no guarantee of the right to vote on a federal level. Elections are the province of the states, or the counties, not the federal government. There is, at present, no such thing as a federal election. At any rate, the VRA was not nullified, only a portion, which was at the time it was enacted, and has remained discriminatory and judgmental in their truest sense, was nullified.
Already the liberal talking heads are trying to say that it will cause large scale disenfranchisement of minority voters. How do they say this is going to happen? Well, according to their warped thinking, requiring a person to prove they are qualified to vote amounts to discrimination.
Cutting to the chase, their argument is that requiring voter I.D. will keep all the minorities and the poor from voting. Utter and complete hogwash is what that is!
What they are trying to convince you is that these folks have never driven a car, got on a train or plane, been to a hospital, cashed a check or opened a checking account, applied for or used a credit card, registered a car, voted in a Union election, donated blood, rented an apartment, had utilities turned on, checked out a library book, applied for any welfare programs (i.e. food stamps, student breakfast programs, etc.) or bought a beer or a pack of cigarettes. That is a partial list of things that require an I.D. Do you know anyone, of voting age, who has not done any of those things? Me either.
So, if an ID is such an integral part of everyday life, how come it becomes a burden to show it at election time? The truth is it does not. It is not a burden. At least, it is not a burden if you are a legal citizen of this country. Those who are of age to possess an I. D. do not possess one. are those who are in this country illegally and should not be able to vote.
The problem is that some of the liberals do not want voter I.D. for the simple reason that it does restrict the votes to those who are legally qualified to vote. They know that the illegal aliens who vote will always vote for the liberal candidate, who promises “free ice cream at somebody else’s expense.”
It is interesting to note that in those areas not requiring voter I. D., in connection with the last Presidential election, there were reports of precincts where the actual number of votes cast exceeded the number of registered voters. There were confessions by people that they voted more than once, some with the help of election officials. Why are these areas not being subjected to investigation under the same VRA? What about the areas where the New Black Panthers intimidated non black people trying to vote? Why are those areas not being investigated? Where is the difference in the New Black Panthers interfering with non-black people trying to vote and the Ku Klux Klan interfering with black people trying to vote?
This is not the South of 1965 when racial discrimination was still prevalent. Any claim that it is still prevalent must, of necessity, be accompanied by more than accusations and innuendos, given the number of minorities serving in elected offices across the breadth of the south. To continue the discriminatory provisions of the VRA against certain states and not others would be a travesty.
The Supreme Court did the right thing, in spite of what the liberal talking heads and the liberal press may tell you.
