Recently the governor of North Carolina signed a measure into law that overhauls the state’s election laws requiring government approved/issued photo IDs when voting. According to the governor, this is to combat election fraud and to shorten early voting, moves that drew stinging criticism and threats of legal action from the NAACP, Democrats and Progressives.
The American Civil Liberties Union announced that it was filing suit against this law.
Republican lawmakers who backed the measure said it was meant to prevent voter fraud, which they allege is both rampant and undetected in North Carolina as well as all other states that have large cities and lower-income population.
Independent voting rights groups recently joined Progressives, Libertarians, Democrats, Eric Holder and President Obama in suggesting the true goal was to suppress voter turnout, especially among traditional Democratic constituencies, such as poor blacks, illegal immigrants, the uneducated young and government-dependent elderly rather than recognizing the fact that Democrats/Progressives suppress them to feed on their votes.
As a note, it takes a government issued/approved ID to do the following: get a fishing license, drive a car, receive health care,get a job, fly on a plane, go overseas, receive welfare benefits, withdraw money from a bank, register for casino rewards, receive prescriptions, go to college, rent a hotel room, buy a gun, join the military, rent a car, work in the health care system, retire from the military, join any union, buy alcohol, deposit money in a bank, buy cigarettes, buy Lotto tickets, buy Claritin, buy nail polish remover, buy spray paint, buy ammunition, buy a car, buy a house, rescue a dog from an animal shelter, run for government office, get a copy of your birth certificate, get utilities turned on and file bankruptcy.
Why is showing a government issued/approved ID to vote such an issue?
