Why if you need to show ID to buy a drink or cigarettes, rent a car or hotel room or even get some Sudafed, do liberals get so crazy about showing identification prior to voting?
When you think about it, no matter how you answer the question the result is still the same…ridiculous! They either think so little of those they supposedly serve, actually believing it is a hardship for them to get ID (seriously?… who are the real racists?) or clearly that is the only thing preventing them from manipulating the process.
Based on their win at all costs approach, let’s go with the latter. Evidence of that hit the wires again this week, as according to AP:
“A federal appeals court on Friday blocked Kansas, Georgia and Alabama from requiring residents to prove they are U.S. citizens when registering to vote using a national form.
The 2-1 ruling is a victory for voting rights groups who said a U.S. election official illegally changed proof-of-citizenship requirements on the federal registration form at the behest of the three states.
People registering to vote in other states are only required to swear that that they are citizens, not show documentary proof.
The three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia acted swiftly in the case, issuing a two-page, unsigned ruling just a day after hearing oral arguments. A federal judge in July had refused to block the requirement while the case is considered on the merits.
The League of Women Voters and civil rights groups argued that the requirements could lead to the “mass disenfranchisement” of thousands of potential voters — many of them poor, African-American and living in rural areas”
Truly amazing. How insulting to the rural African-American community! You really have to ask yourself what the true motivations are of some civil rights groups. Are they really interested in protecting those they are supposed to serve or is it serving themselves and their political agenda that is their main objective?
