Voting rights activists scored legal victories in key presidential election states Friday, the most important being a federal appeals court ruling that North Carolina’s Republican-led legislature enacted new voting restrictions in 2013 to intentionally blunt the growing clout of African American voters.
The unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit was an overwhelming victory for the Justice Department and civil rights groups. Election law experts consider North Carolina’s voter law one of the nation’s most far-reaching.Now, as it points out here at the American Thinker, one has to wonder if logic still count for anything?
If it is unconstitutional to require an ID to be able to vote, how is it okay to require an ID to cash a check, board an airplane, drive a car, or anything else? If I go up to a bank teller and present a check against Donald Trump's account, what right has the teller to ask me for an ID? Surely such an action would be discriminatory, given the federal court's ruling.
I recently sold some scrap metal to a junkyard. It was a couple of old car batteries and miscellaneous scraps of copper and aluminum I didn't need. They required me to show a government-issued photo ID to receive payment. The reason for this is simple: to help track and discourage people who steal such things and sell them to junkyards. Surely the integrity of our electoral process is more important than keeping tabs on people who sell scrap metal to junkyards.There is one, and only one reason why requiring a government issued photo ID to vote is not desirable: if you want to make it easier to commit voter fraud. That's it. I am past tired of communists disguised as Democrats overturning common sense laws put in place to ensure one person gets one vote, and no more. Despite what the communists disguised as Democrats think, some animals are not more equal than others.
