Can anybody actually explain to me how requiring ID to vote is racist, or how it disproportionately affects any minorities? I hear it all the time from retarded liberals, but as is the case with most of their statements it's never backed up with facts, just more emotional appeals (aka lack of logic).
Riddle me this.....
Let's say a lot of black people decide that they don't like to buy car insurance. As a result, more black people are ticketed/arrested for driving without insurance. The law requiring car insurance now disproportionately affects black people; should we now strike down the law, because it disproportionately affects black people....?
Now, let's say a lot of Hispanic people (legal Hispanics, mind you) decide that they don't like to carry photo ID. As a result, more Hispanics are disallowed from voting. The law requiring ID to vote now disproportionately affects Hispanics; should we now strike down the law, because it disproportionately affects Hispanics....?
If the law was requiring photo ID, and it was somehow more difficult or impossible for Hispanics or blacks to get photo ID, I could understand the ID law disproportionately affects blacks or Hispanics. Exactly how is it difficult for anybody of any one group to get photo ID...?
The logical explanation is that it is only difficult for those who are here illegally to get photo ID. As far as I understand, voting is for citizens of the country holding the elections. Just as I should not be allowed to go down to Mexico or up to Canada to vote in their elections as a non-citizen, nor should we allow that here.
If voter ID laws disproportionately affect illegal immigrants, that's the entire goddamned point. From Citizenship and Immigration itself, "Only U.S. citizens can vote in federal elections. Registering to vote or voting in a federal election is a crime if you are not a U.S. citizen. Non-U.S. citizens, including permanent residents (green card holders), who vote, or register to vote, in a federal election also can be denied naturalization and/or removed (deported) from the United States." Since it is illegal for illegal immigrants to vote, how is making it more difficult for them to vote a bad thing?
What reasonable explanations are there for voter ID laws disproportionately affecting ANY racial minorities???
Yes, I know Obama and the rest of his regime want/need the illegal voters, just like they need dead people and dogs to continue voting for them. It's obvious that this is the real reason, but I'm asking more for reasonable justifications, not horseshit emotional appeals.
Finally, to further illustrate why voter ID laws are a good idea, here's somebody voting as Atty Gen Eric Holder himself (or at least being handed Holder's ballot...obviously the guy didn't cast the vote because THATwould be a CRIME )
