Saw this article today on FoxNews.com. It is scary. Voters do not have to prove that they are citizens and are the only ones that have the right to vote in this country? I don’t care if its a federal or state standard. It should be the standard. And this quote tops them all:
“This will enable the many poor people in Arizona who lack driver’s licenses and birth certificates to register to vote,” said Jon Greenbaum, legal director for the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
You have got to be kidding! Its not that they are poor. Its that they are illegal!!!!
The 9th Circuit’s chief judge, Alex Kozinski, wrote a sharp dissent, saying the ruling ignored precedent and was flat wrong on its legal analysis.
“Few panels are able to upset quite so many apple carts all at once,” Kozinski concluded. “Count me out.”
Gov. Jan Brewer and Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett issued a joint statement calling the decision an “outrage and a slap in the face to all Arizonans who care about the integrity of their elections.”
“Arizona voters have made their will crystal clear — non-citizens do not have the right to vote,” they wrote. “We will continue to pursue any and all legal remedies to prevent fraudulent voter registration in the State of Arizona, as well as the right of our state citizens to craft appropriate protections.”
This should not only enrage the people of Arizona, it should enrage every American! We have got to stop the voter fraud. It is making a joke of our electoral system. We need to scale back funding for bogus, fluffy, non-helpful, deficit adding programs and spend a little on making sure out votes are legitimate!
