So let’s see if we have this right?
Many believe the election process in the United States to be a sham.
Others would like to make this a so-called “Black Lives Matter” issue.
Gunny has the solution for that directly below.
He is specifically addressing the issue of voter fraud, a felony, if you cheat you are worthless.
If our votes are actually counted and are to mean anything they must be backed by a voter identification card at no charge to the applicant.
It must be tamper proof and extraordinarily difficult to forge.
Rulings like this are a direct slap in the face toward black Americans making the assumption that they are unable to figure out how to vote.
Most states require positive identification to obtain a driver’s license, sign up for welfare and other government assistance.
A photo identification in the form of a driver’s license is required by the police unless one plans on spending the night at the gray bar hotel.
Try enrolling in a college or university without one.
Individuals are required to provide a photo identification to cash a check.
I logical solution which would get the ACLU and other civil rights stirred up would be for the federal government to issue a voter identification card with holograms, chips, you name it.
It’s not as though the NSA doesn’t have everything they want and need on those inside America’s boarders already.
So what’s with the judges on North Carolina’s 4th Circuit Court of Appeals?
As a result, untold numbers of individuals will vote in November’s upcoming election and subsequent ones unless the Supreme Court overturns this ruling next year.
A federal appeals court Friday struck down North Carolina’s array of voting restrictions enacted in 2013, saying they all “disproportionately affected African-Americans.”
This is a direct insult to blacks and a slap in the face.
What would make a black person have more difficulty than a poor white person particularly if no fees are charged or required?
The decision came a week after a similar ruling against Texas’ voter ID law, giving civil rights groups two major victories leading up to the November elections.
Citing “the inextricable link between race and politics in North Carolina,” a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit said state lawmakers intentionally imposed the restrictions to make it more difficult for blacks to vote.
“The new provisions target African-Americans with almost surgical precision,” the judges said.
****Why would this be targeted toward blacks most of whom could not find Africa on the map?
“They constitute inapt remedies for the problems asserted to justify them and, in fact, impose cures for problems that did not exist.”
The North Carolina and Texas laws were enacted following the Supreme Court’s ruling in 2013 striking down part of the Voting Rights Act that required states with a history of discrimination to get federal permission before changing voting procedures.
Where is the discrimination in showing who you are, not that phony I.D. cards aren’t made up all the time?
While Texas imposed the toughest photo ID rules, North Carolina’s law was the most expansive of any in the nation.
See the entire article below.
The law had been challenged by the North Carolina NAACP and other civil rights groups, along with the U.S. Department of Justice.
Without court action, the law threatened to impact the presidential race in the politically balanced state, which President Obama won narrowly in 2008 but Mitt Romney won back for Republicans in 2012.
The law had come under attack last month when the panel heard oral arguments. Judge Henry Floyd said the legislature’s rush to impose limits after getting a green light from the Supreme Court in 2013 “looks pretty bad to me.”
Seventeen states have new voting procedures in place for the November election, more than half of which are being challenged in court. Many require voters to show photo identification, such as the Texas law. Others target rules for registering, early voting and provisional voting, such as North Carolina’s law.
Last month, the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, a generally conservative court, ruled 9-6 that Texas’ law was not intended to discriminate but had that effect on minority voters. The law could have left up to 600,000 voters without the proper identification in this fall’s elections, opponents claimed.
