Skip to comments.Voter ID one step closer to become state law (North Carolina)
Posted on 04/25/2013 5:57:51 PM PDT by Libloather
RALEIGH The state House passed a bill Wednesday requiring voters to show a photo ID when they go to the polls in 2016, after an emotionally charged debate that underscored North Carolinas political polarization.
House Republicans pushed through the measure saying that the public demanded more stringent ballot security at polling places, that voter fraud was more prevalent than is understood, and that in a modern, mobile society fewer election officials personally knew voters.
Our system of government depends upon open and honest elections, said Rep. David Lewis, a farm equipment dealer from Dunn and a Republican. Having people prove who they say they are as a condition of voting makes sense and guarantees that each vote is weighted equally and cumulatively determines the outcome of elections.

Opponents of the voter ID bill being debated in the N.C. House at the Legislative Building in Raleigh, NC on April 24, 2013 wear black tape over their mouths as a sign of protest against the bill.
Aww, how cute! They brought along a token white guy.
What the hell?
Gee, let’s show up with black tape across our mouths (racist) to try to stop an honest voting system- ONE THAT SEPARATES US FROM ILLEGITIMATE, CORRUPT GOVERNMENTS- by trying to prevent that all votes cast are cast by legal, registered citizens.
This crowd hates things such as this.
Having the election workers check your photo ID before you vote? That’s just like Costco checking your receipt against the goods in your cart before they let you leave with the goods? Damn, can’t you just trust us? You’re trying to suppress our voting and our buying of goods from Costco for no good reason.
There won’t be an election in 2016. Our dictator King Obama will have his term extended due to a current crisis. His term will be for life.
This is an example of the dramatics I abhor from the idiot left: I hated it in The China Syndrome and it’s just as ridiculous here.
But, leftie-locusts, please keep the tape over your mouths while you watch this:
As good as this sounds, can’t they get their stuff together in order to make this happen by 2014?
In addition to the states never having ratified an amendment to the Constitution to protect voters from being required to show a valid ID in order to vote, please consider the following.
The states have also never ratified an amendment to the Constitution to protect candidate voters from having to pass a basic constitutional knowledge test before being allowed to vote. After all, voters need to be on their guard against candidates for Congress who make campaign promises to establish federal spending programs based on powers which the states have never delegated to Congress via the Constitution.
In fact, and I’m not trying to be mean to blacks, but please consider the following major problem with the 15th Amendment imo. If the former slaves were never taught the Founding States’ division of federal and state government powers, then it was probably a big mistake for states to allow any citizen who couldn’t at least orally demonstrate basic proficiency in constitutional law to vote.
After all, given that former slaves didn’t know what was going on with Congress’s constitutionally limited powers, then former slaves and their decendents were probably influenced by corrupt candidate lawmakers who eventually began promising minority-targeted federal spending programs based on powers which the states have never delegated to Congress via Constitution the specific power to tax and spend for.
In fact, Obama’s socialistic changes to the country which blatantly ignored the federal government’s constitutionally-limited powers to lay taxes are a major example of how Constitution-ignorant voters can be tricked into abusing their voting power.
I forgot to mention the following in my previous post concerning problems with voters not knowing basic constitutonal law.
Since the Senate was still controlled by state legislatures until the 17th Amendment was ratified in the next century, even if candidates for the House of Representatives made spending promises that Congress had no constitutional authority to make, then the Senate would have hopefully killed appropriations bill from the House which the House could not justify under Section 8 of Article I regardless what lawmakers had promised to voters.
However, given that the federal Department of Education, or whatever it was called at the time, was established after the Civil War, but also noting that the states had never delegated to Congress via the Constitution the specific power to regulate, tax and spend for public school purposes, there was evidently (unsurprisingly?) confusion about the limits of Congress’s powers after the Civil War regardless that the Senate was supposed to protect state sovereignty.
What Republicans CAN LEARN from Voter ID, but won’t is that the Democrats PLAY FOR KEEPS and do what’s necessary, ethical or not, legal or not, to achieve and hold power.
NO ONE IS FOOLED - especially not the Democrats - they all know that EVERYONE has ID, for that is still needed to collect the benefits they deserve (a little Dem lingo there).
So there is not an issue regarding whether requiring ID impacts Dems, for it doesn’t. So why fight it so hard - and that gets to how they implement voter fraud.
The method is very simple - they make sure that everyone in LaHood is signed up, and then some. If they vote, fine - but if they don’t vote, the Dems working those polls go through the lists and do them the favor of voting for them. That simple.
The problem, for them, with Voter ID, is that the method of ID is recorded, electronically in Texas. You show your driver license and they scan it. Hard to do when you’re “voting for someone”. Texas passed their ID law for the last election, but it got stopped by Justice...no surprise. But Texas also used it informally, so I got to see how it worked when I voted. It makes cheating VERY DIFFICULT. I can see why Democrats fear it so much.
So you now have the entire Democrat establishment dead-set against Voter ID, for only ONE REASON, because the existing system makes fraud so easy and they are very good at it.
Republicans, on the other hand, at least in the Senate, are jumping over each other to be in front of Amnesty - ASSURING permanent defeat of their party for generations (i.e., California flipped for good thanks to the 1986 Amnesty - and now the Republicans want to do it for the rest of the country).
At the VERY LEAST, Republicans don’t have to commit POLITICAL SUICIDE. Maybe we shouldn’t go as low as being committed to cheating from the top down, but Amnesty, really?
