Closing in on Voter ID (Right)


You would not know it if you read only the New York Times or watched only MSNBC, but the Left and President Obama are losing their fight to block the widespread introduction of voter ID cards. In courts of law and the court of public opinion, the issue is gaining traction. With few exceptions, liberal pressure groups have lost lawsuits in state after state, with courts tossing out their faux claims that ID laws are discriminatory, unconstitutional or suppress minority voting.
... over incumbent Republican Sen. Norm Coleman. A watchdog group matched criminal records with the voting rolls and discovered that 1,099 felons had cast ballots illegally. A local TV news reporter found that nine of the 10 felons he interviewed had voted for Franken. State law allows prosecutions only of those who admit knowingly committing voter fraud, and 177 were convicted. Franken’s victory margin was just 312 votes. It gave Democrats their 60th Senate seat, creating the filibuster-proof majority that helped make Obamacare law.

There is sharp disagreement over how many people lack proper identification. Former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, who is himself black, pointed out in the Wall Street Journal that “one of the most often-cited factoids — something that sounds authoritative but is not fact-based — is the NAACP’s claim that 25 percent of black American adults lack a government-issued photo ID. Think about that for a moment. This would mean that millions of African-American men and women are unable to legally drive, cash a check, board an airliner or participate in everyday activities of modern life.” Hyperbole of this sort perpetuates the patronizing view that minorities are helpless victims. Liberals say Blackwell doesn’t understand how high the barriers are for some people who lack ID. But if he were really wrong, it is difficult to see why so few voters apply for a free ID in states with such requirements. [Full]

I am quite unable to forgive the Franken Fraud.  Without that, there would be no Obamacare.  There would be nothing the regime have hoisted upon us that could not be undone.  While it's possible (but improbable) that Franken was not a knowing party to the fraud, there is no question about Obama Democrat guilt.  Left to me, some harsh punishment is meted out to the lot.  Very harsh.

Franken was not a single case. Fraud is the the capstone of democrat politics. They use it everywhere.

And what is almost as bad, Franken was nowhere near a good stand-up comedian. Although he is doing an adequate job at being a comedian while in the House.

And HMS is right. But he forgot to include that the dumbocrats are aided and abetted by the SEIU thugs, aided and abetted by Shyster General Holder, keeping honest voters out of the polling places.

I thought Franken was a funny as hell in skit comedy, and that included his Air America gig spoofing of Liberal cultis... - what? It wasn't? Nevermind.

"State law allows prosecutions only of those who admit knowingly committing voter fraud"


Does that apply to speeding and murder, too?

Imagine depending on a constituency SO FREAKING LAZY that you have to give them months to round 'em all up and drag 'em to the polls. And then, you STILL have to cheat!

Face it: Franken is an ASS. He got elected through fraud and deception, and in belter times, he would have been imprisoned within hours of the polls being closed.

Since we can't embarrass him by storming the Capital and hanging him from a lamp post in downtown Washington, D.C., the best we an do is stomp the political life out of him in the next election! Beat the political crap out of him, then kick his teeth out so he NEVER tries to run for ANYTHING ever again!

Going back and reading that again just makes it sound better and netter!

BTW, that should have been "better and better," nut my computer is old and it SUCKS, 'cause it doesn't know what I MEANT to say, it only knows what I type!

Lousy Democrap technology!

In a perfect world, the heirs of Franken would be fined for an environmental infraction when feral hogs ate him after leaving a film about Woodstock.
