Texas to Immediately Enforce Voter I.D. Bill [Let freedom ring!!!!]
Fort Worth Star-Telegram ^ | June 25, 2013 | Maria Recio

Posted on 06/25/2013 6:08:02 PM PDT by fwdude

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court’s decision on the Voting Rights Act had an instant impact in Texas, where Attorney General Greg Abbott announced that the state’s photo Voter ID bill, blocked by federal judges last year, would “take effect immediately.”

“Today’s ruling ensures that Texas is no longer one of just a few states that must seek approval from the federal government before its election laws can take effect,” said Abbott in a statement.

This is enormously GREAT news!!!! Demonicrats have been tauntingly saying that Texas will go "blue" in a few years. Well, this will definitely guard against this.

Vote fraud is the life blood of the Democrat Party.

Why would anyone think Holder won’t sue Texas? He already sued Voter ID states leading up to the election, long after SCOTUS had already upheld Voter ID in April 2008.

It would be sweet if a certain district in Houston lost their current loon. But she'll figure out another way to cheat.

Thats where a bit of backbone comes in to play. If Holder wants to illegally sue Texas, then Texas can just tell him to go pound sand.

Considering Houston's last mayor and mayoral contender (Bill White and Chris Bell) tried unsuccessfully to take higher office (Bell lost his Congressional seat during redistricting to a black Democrat), I have to wonder if Houston's lesbian mayor is being groomed for the national stage as well.

Lee P.Brown was an incompetent stooge who was propped up by the local media but even his failings couldn't be shielded by the end of his run. He'd only stand a chance at holding Sheila Jackson Lee's office.

Why would anyone think that Texas would give a sh!t if Holder sued? Trust me, we wouldn’t.

As a non-lawyer I would like to know if this ruling automatically applies to all 57 states?

Not only should they tell Holder to pound sand, but they should encourage companies to build new refineries.

Now we just need to stop this amnesty bill.

Texas will probably move out primary up so Texans have a conservative voice in the primary process from now on.

Thank you AG Abbott. Run for Governor....you got my vote.

Actually IMO we need to clone him. The governor of Texas actually doesn’t have all that much authority. If Abbott is elected to that position then we have lost one of the best AG’s in the United States and there is no one to take his place.

Texas was already getting tough on citizenship. They strengthened the requirements to establish residency and get a drivers license or ID card. But supposedly people could vote without a license or ID. Guess that all changes now too.

Although not part of today’s ruling, does anyone know if PA will have voter ID?

there was a bill passed but not enacted in time for the 2012 election, as I recall.

The VRA was enacted to ensure access, not outcomes. Minorities also got what evolved into guaranteed outcomes. The ruling removes the outcomes. The result will be that minority representation will more accurately reflect their percentage within the population. They will have to moderate and assimilate in ways they have resisted for the past several decades.

Honestly, if I were Black, I would want Affirmative Action to go away, too. Blacks will not have credibility in high positions until Affirmative Action is a thing of the past. With Affirmative Action, any Black in a position of power is perceived to be lesser than their position.......an Affirmative Action pick. Blacks need to show they CAN make it on their own. What a sorry state of affairs, and the race hustlers just keep on whining.

Voter IDs are so last election, they have moved on to full bore voting machine fraud.
