An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Civil rights attorney George Barrett Wednesday filed an appeal to the Tennessee Court of Appeals of a recent state court decision that found Tennessee’s voter identification law to be constitutional.
His application for emergency appeal asks state officials to remove government-issued photo ID as a voting requirement in the November election.
The appeal requests a hearing no later than Oct. 12. Tennessee’s early voting starts Oct. 17.
Barrett has been at war for months with state officials over the state’s voter ID law, which took effect this year. He has called the law “an unconstitutional impediment on the right to vote.”
Isn’t it interesting that the only people who object to a photo ID to use the most precious gift we have as Americans, the right to vote, are the same ones that insisted on photo ID at their convention? These are the same liars who encourage criminals to invade our country, who cheat and steal to get what they want, and to hell with the rest of us. We don’t matter. It’s their ability to cheat to retain THEIR power that matters.
This is not a civil rights issue! Why some overpriced civil rights lawyers has poked his nose in is beyond me. There are quite a number of areas where you NEED a photo ID. Here are just a few:
Apply for welfare
Apply for food stamps
Cash a check
Purchase a firearm
Make any large credit card purchase
Open a bank account
Rent an apartment
Be admitted to a hospital
Get a marriage license
Get a library card
Buy an airline ticket
Get on the plane
Rent a video
Pawn any item
And that’s just for starters. How is that discriminatory? I guess since voting is more important that buying groceries, it’s ok to cheat, and have those not allowed to vote under the U.S. Constitution? They’re even giving out FREE photo IDs, so what the blazes is the problem? If so many minorities are going to be “disenfranchised”, then why are so many minorities driving cars? Buying liquor, renting apartments, just like the rest of the population?
Nope…this isn’t about disenfranchising anyone but those who are NOT legally allowed to vote. And I have NO problem with that whatsoever! I am sick of the fraud perpetrated on the American people, no matter which party is responsible. The fact that the Democrats have become experts at this kind of fraud says a LOT about their moral compass!
