IDs Required

A forever growing list:

The original I saw on Facebook was much shorter.

If anyone knows of more to add, feel free to let me know.

How Important Is Truthful Voting To You

We need responsible, mature, honest, non-partisan updates to our voting application, registration, methods.

Otherwise …., well, watch this. And guess how folks in Minnesota might feel about this issue.

(I overheard someone in COSTCO the other day returning a purchase. First thing the attendant said was they would need to see picture ID. How about that.)

South Carolina Has Proof of Voter Fraud

That’s the State Attorney General talking.

AG Holder a Betting Man

That’s how this Hot Air article portrays him. Nevertheless, this article is an excellent read and blockquotes this tidbit within theirs:

The 1965 Voting Rights Act was created to combat the systematic disenfranchisement of minorities, especially in Southern states with a history of discrimination. But the Justice position is a lead zeppelin, contradicting both the Supreme Court and the Department’s own precedent. In 2005, Justice approved a Georgia law with the same provisions and protections of the one Mr. Holder nixed for South Carolina. In 2008, the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board that an Indiana law requiring photo ID did not present an undue burden on voters.

But betting man? Holder? I’m surprised has hasn’t folded his hand. He really should.

Read the whole article as Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey points out that the photo-id established by Indiana and others are provided to the applicant for free.

NAACP Complains To UN About US States Voting Laws

Got that? The NAACP apparently is taking their concerns about possible voter disenfranchisement, of minorities, to an organization rife with criminals (remember Oil for Food?, Darfur?).

Absolutely ridiculous on its face. Mostly because they don’t like the laws in this country, ACORN hasn’t done enough voter fraud – so they want even more of a chance to destroy our needs for constitutional freedoms and the Law of the Land.

Apparently, NAACP no longer trusts even our own government. I wonder why?

Direct attention away from this maybe?

Voter ID in Rhode Island

As Gomer Pyle used to say, “Surprise, surprise, surprise!”

And what’s more, the perfect case for voter ID was put forth by this RI news article.

In a representative democracy, voting is sacred. It is how citizens can help change their government peacefully when they think it ceases to serve their interests and values. When the vote is corrupted by fraud, the legitimacy of the entire system is undermined.

That’s why Rhode Island should require that voters produce a photo ID at the polls.

“Voting should be at least as secure as renting a car, getting a library card or any of the other tasks that routinely require an ID,” said Secretary of State Ralph Mollis.

It would be nice, and proper, if more states would do the same (cough).

Don Surber has some more on this (h/t to you, Don). Be sure to read through the comments as well.

UPDATE: Voter ID

Guess what? It’s up to the state. Hear that, Maryland?

Look who else has it, and is getting it.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker signed into law Wednesday a requirement that voters in Wisconsin show photo identification at the polls, marking the end of a nearly decade-long push by Republicans to enact it.

Be sure to read the comments also.

UPDATE: Apparently, the Governor of Minnesota doesn’t “get it”. Which only means the he has now REALLY ticked off the voting public.
