A Federal Court smacked down Eric Holder’s Justice Department today when it refused to block North Carolina’s “controversial” voter ID law. The law, which simply requires voters to bring a valid ID to prove their citizenship, was attacked in a lawsuit brought by the Justice Department last September.
Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, decscribed the decision as a huge setback to Eric Holder:
“It is an embarrassing defeat for the Holder Justice Department. The court’s decision eviscerates Eric Holder’s politicized and racially inflammatory legal assault on commonsense election integrity measures. The court expressly rejected the Department of Justice’s contention that minorities are harmed by commonsense measures that help secure honest elections. The court’s dramatic rejection of Holder’s legal theory shows that that the DOJ’s lawsuit, which was coordinated with political activists at the White House, was always more about cynical political and racial appeals than upholding the law.”

This is a good thing. We should know who is voting...especially now with all the undocumented criminals coming into our country.
Between 2000 and 2010, there were:
649 million votes cast in general elections
47,000 UFO sightings
441 Americans killed by lightning
13 credible cases of in-person voter impersonation
It is every Democrat American's right to vote, vote often, bus in people with you to vote often, and should not need an ID!
On December 14, 1984, Chief Judge Frank McGarr of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois publicly released the federal grand jury's report on the 1982 election-only the third time in the history of the court that a grand jury report had been made public. The evidence revealed substantial vote fraud in Chicago during the November 2, 1982, election and found "that similar fraudulent activities have occurred prior to 1982."

A history lesson....
Where There's Smoke, There's Fire: 100,000 Stolen Votes in Chicago
read the entire article.
In its reporting, the Chicago Tribune discovered that the supposed home address of three voters in the 17th Precinct of the 27th Ward was a vacant lot. The paper also discovered that votes had been cast for seven residents of a nursing home who denied having voted-their signatures on the ballot applications were all forgeries

I think its a good idea actually..always have. a free ID to everyone..nothing much in it outside of a pic, date of birth, name, and "official citizenship document" and that's about it...no other information ever to be added, no driving, insurance, criminal, or other info.
Glad conservatives have abandoned this idea of freedom from government and used a more logical approach...
(that's gotta hurt)
If the ID is required for voting, and the ID is not free ... then it's a Poll Tax. Pure. Simple.
DMV offers ID cards for those customers who require a photo ID, but do not require a Driver’s License. There is no fee for a Voter ID card, or if a customer qualifies for another no-fee ID. The cost for a standard Non-operator ID card is $10. An ID can be obtained from any Driver License Office, regardless of where you live.

I'd think the lefties would be gleeful for this.
Many on the right say that voter fraud gets progressives elected.
With voter ID, the righties would have no argument then.
The progressives could just laugh and laugh.
