Showing I.D. To Vote.


ATLANTA - At the end of a losing battle during the past legislative session, Georgia state Rep. Alisha Thomas Morgan burst into the civil rights anthem “Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around” to protest the passage of a law requiring voters to show a photo ID at the polls.

W, as they say, TF!!!?

In the next session starting Jan. 9, the 27-year-old black Democrat says she will not be moved in her fight to get the law repealed.

“It’s whatever it takes,” Morgan said. “I’m putting on the armor. Nothing they can do will fix the bill. It’s a bad law and it needs to be repealed. We’re not going backwards.”

Thomas and other black lawmakers know they are in for a battle as Republicans stand determined to defend the law, which requires voters who do not have a driver’s license to buy a state-issued ID card for as much as $35 — a fee critics say hurts the poor, the elderly and minorities.

The entire article is here.

First, to establish something we know in advance will be blown up into a racial event{look for appearances by the usual suspects, like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and perhaps even Louis Farrakhan}, this is not a racial issue, and the very idea that low income folks are so poor that they cannot somehow produce enough money for the onetime purchase of state I.D. is ludicrous. I’d also like to point out that there are a whole lot of dirt poor white families in both rural areas and major cities, I happen to have met both examples, so this law does not only require low income minorities to produce picture I.D. at the polls.

I refer you to California; I recently moved from there to the east coast, but I’ve voted numerous times in San Francisco. My polling place, as a matter of interest, was a Honda dealership at the intersection of Van Ness Avenue and Market Street, which was once the site of Bill Graham’s Fillmore West. I used to own a live double album, on vinyl, recorded there by the Allman Brothers’ Band.

There, in the lap of the liberal capital of this solar system, I was required to produce both my voter’s registration card and… California picture I.D.

Times have changed since the days when you could write a personal check at a store you’d never been to before on the strength of merely producing a checkbook.

Today, the country plays host to millions of illegal aliens who would simply love the opportunity to vote for political candidates sympathetic to their illicit cause(essentially that of allowing them the same rights as documented citizens while allowing them to remain “off the books”), and without adequate identification requirements, a single illegal could make the rounds of every poll in his or her city and vote in every one.

There’s also the fact that anyone else could do the same — vote several times under several different names using identifiers like Social Security cards and utility bills that don’t have photos on them.

It’s bad enough that each state has its own voting authority that isn’t linked to the other forty-nine. Back when Bush defeated Gore in the 2000 election, the Mainstream Media made a big deal about hanging chads in Florida and so forth, accusing Bush of “stealing the election,” but they totally ignored the issue of many thousands more liberals from New York, having moved to Florida, voting at polls in Florida while also voting by absentee ballot in New York.

So can the race card, Alicia T. Morgan, the law requiring showing valid picture I.D. at the polls is perfectly justified.

    Hey, if believing that minorities are fully capable of obtaining an ID and remembering to bring it with them when they vote makes you racist then I guess I’m guilty.

    The real racism lies among the liberals, who assume that minorities are unable to make their respective ways in the world without being “helped” by the Democrats, the party of the KKK.

    Another thing you don’t hear the liberals yelling about is the significantly huge number of low and no income white folks in this country, because if they included them, they couldn’t play the race card.

    Isn’t (conveniently) eliminating the poor whites from the equation also a form of racism?

    The only help the Dems actually give them is stuff geared towards keeping them dependent on the government, and minority voters continue, election after election, to vote for a party that keeps feeding them a line of BS.

    The libs know this ID law will never be overturned, but they waste the taxpayers’ time and money fighting it just so they can say they were championing the cause of minorities and battling racism.
