Being a Texan, though by choice, and not by birth, I have a great appreciation for this state and its basic sense of fairness. Barack Obama has poked Texans in the eye, and I’m not particularly thrilled that this dictator is still running our country. While he has already undertaken a number of policies that have been punitive to the Lone Star State, this time, he has stepped over a boundary in the sense that he’s actually accused Texans of what could only be called a sort of de facto racism. As usual, he did so through his equally thuggish Attorney General, Eric Holder, who issued an order instructing Texas not to enforce its new voter ID law, aimed at reducing vote fraud. This is just the latest in a long line of attacks on Texas by the radical Obama administration. This is the sort of thing that convinces many Americans that Obama is not merely incompetent, but malevolent.
This is going too far, because if we must not identify voters with reasonable certainty that they are indeed eligible, then every eligible voter who takes the time to register and to vote is being cheated, and their votes are being diluted by each and every fraudulent, ineligible person who shows up to cast a vote. To me, and to most Texans, self-identification is a reasonable measure we can take to be sure that the outcomes of elections are legitimate. Of course, Democrats hate the idea, being the party of institutionalized vote-fraud, so it’s easy to understand their treasonous motive.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has already filed suit, joining with South Carolina in pursuing action against the Federal Government. I realize politics are involved here, but maybe that’s the point. I think Governor Perry should make plans to enforce the law, pending action in the courts, and if the courts don’t act before the next elections, scheduled for May 29th, he should go ahead and enforce it and dare the Obama administration to stop him. Perry talks a good game about the Tenth Amendment, but will he stand up for it?
Of course, the argument of the Holder Justice Department is that the new Texas statute violates the Voting Rights Act, as preposterous a notion as has been offered in a long while. The other argument of the leftists is that there is no evidence of significant vote fraud. No kidding! How can you create evidence without identifying voters? If we never substantially audit the vote, because we cannot verify who actually voted, how in the world are we to provide evidence?
This is another typical leftist scam aimed at pumping up illegal votes for Democrats. They’re never satisfied to go to the polls and let the chips fall where they may, because if that happened, there would be many fewer Democrats in office, and every person who has paid even scarce attention to this issue over the last few decades knows this. In fact, it has long been thought that without the legions of the dead who ‘voted’ for him, John F. Kennedy might well have lost in 1960. That would have changed history in many remarkable ways. The truth is that this is an issue far too important to ignore, and for the sake of the country, we must begin to get a handle on fraud in voting. Too much is at stake to let the games continue.
