What we see on the news is Attorney General Eric Holder telling the American people there’s no need for Americans to show ID to vote. In fact, he says, to do so would be racist. He assures us that there is really no problem with voter fraud. Really?
The head of the NAACP travels to Geneva to meet with the UN Council about Texas’ voter ID laws. Do we really need some outside organization telling us what to do? Plus, the UN has really no moral authority to tell us what to do. Look at the countries and people they ignore and they’re supposed to choose Texas voter ID laws.
I have to show ID in my state if I want to vote. It’s not that hard to do. In fact, I have to show ID for many things I need to do in life.
I know AG Holder thinks there’s nothing to see here. No problem…No problem at all. Watch the following video and tell me what you think.
ProjectVeritas.com Investigation. Election officials advise no ID necessary to register Timothy Tebow and Thomas Brady to vote in Minnesota. Absentee ballots are discussed, voter registration forms are given out, and Election officials blow the whistle on potential fraud in their own state.
2012 WTF #20 – Hmmm – Is it just me or does this seem suspicious to anyone else? The Justice Department’s civil rights division on Monday declared its opposition to new photo ID requirement for voters in Texas because many Hispanic voters lack state-issued identification (just like they did with S. Carolina’s similar law last year.)
In a letter to Texas officials the Justice Department said Hispanic voters in Texas are more than twice as likely than non-Hispanic voters to lack a driver’s license or personal state-issued photo ID. The department said that even the lowest estimates showed about half of Hispanic registered voters lack such identification.
Uhm, excuse me, OK, so then how do they buy a beer? Maybe they don’t drink! OK, so how do they cash their paychecks then? But Kurt, maybe they use direct deposit! How do they open a banking account then? But Kurt, maybe they don’t have jobs so they don’t need a bank account! OK then how do they get money? Well Kurt, maybe they get state assistance while they’re trying to find a job!
OK, but then that is where this gets really interesting. To apply for Federal Welfare, all applicants are given a list of REQUIRED documents to bring to sign up including: “proof of income, ID, and utility bills or other proof of residency” (see “How to Apply for a Welfare Program” section, http://www.welfareinfo.org/)
SO… you shouldn’t need an ID to prove you are who you say you are when voting in elections, but you damn well better have ID proving you are who you say you are to get government assistance? Where is the outrage! These people need help! They shouldn’t have to prove that they are who they say they are or even that they need help! Just give them the money already! SHEESH!
Our government is sooo ridiculous sometimes it’s almost funny. ALMOST!
Oh and in case you didn’t hear, James O’Keefe, who “screwed” over ACORN, just released a video from Vermont and New Hampshire showing one of his employees going into multiple voting areas, giving a different name each time and being handed the REPUBLICAN primary ballot without ever being asked for ID (note: he went for the Republican to show this problem is NOT a partisan issue, but can be exploited by anyone with the desire to.)
