    Apr 10, 2012 Sign-Up Can anyone think of an innocuous reason that President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder oppose state voter ID laws?

    Obama and Holder appear to view almost everything through the prism of race or, at the very least, use race as an excuse to justify otherwise very dubious policies, from immigration enforcement to voter intimidation actions to strong-arming banks to make loans via allegations of racism.

    In December, along these lines, Holder criticized redistricting maps that had been drawn by the Texas Legislature and used the opportunity to call for an aggressive federal review of voter identification laws in not just Texas but other states.

    But what does all this have to do with voter ID laws? Well, Republicans have been engaged in lobbying for state voter ID laws throughout the nation as an effort to enhance fair and lawful elections and prevent voter fraud. These laws are simple and transparent; they would require voters to present a government-issued form of identification as a condition to voting.

    Predictably, Democrats -- led by Obama and Holder -- claim that the move is a GOP ruse to suppress minority voting. Holder called on the parties "to resist the temptation to suppress certain votes in the hope of attaining electoral success and, instead, achieve success by appealing to more voters."

    Notice the automatic assumption and, in turn, barely veiled accusation of GOP racism. Notice further how utterly patronizing Holder's attitude is to minorities.

    Is Holder's position that minorities are incapable of or ill-equipped at obtaining identification to vote? Why shouldn't people be required to prove they are who they say they are in order to participate in the electoral process?

    I would think minorities would be offended at the suggestion that laws requiring them to prove their identity as a prerequisite to voting would somehow disadvantage them. I would think they would have every bit as much interest in ensuring fair, fraud-free elections as non-minorities.

    Mr Holder, according to J Christian Adams, former DOJ Voting Rights Attorney, reportedly carries with him at all times in his wallet a card reading "The black attorney has more in common with the black criminal than the black attorney does with the society he is sworn to represent." Harmless, ehh? Are the Saudi and the other Islamic Madrassas harmless to the Israelis, spilling out hate filled graduate after hate filled graduate for nigh onto fifty years now. The World has been walking the tightrope between nuclear World war III and the abyss as a result for nearly as long. Yet we blithely allow Black Liberation Theology and its hatred and venom to flourish equally as well here. Mr Holder and the poison he believes is the latest example "To prosecute the NBPP for voting rights violations would be demeaning to my people".

    Holder looks foolish. He sees no reason to enhance voter authentication and verification and has someone else besides himself get his ballot. The American People can see clearly that if it can happen to the Attorney General of The US, then it can happen to anyone. Moreover, it is indicative that the voting system is weak.

    But, Holder and all of his supporters will stick to their position that any movement to improve the voting system will hurt minorities. The reality is that any improvement or enhancement to the voting system will only hurt people in the US illegally who are trying to vote, convicted fellons, dead people, and groups such as ACORN that rely on the status quo so they can effectively "organize" such peoples in order to impact an Election.

    If the government can mail minorities money, it can mail them i.d. cards.
    Hell, put it all in the same envelope and save postage.

    The Attorney General is sworn to prosecute crime. There is minimal evidence supporting that significant voter fraud is occurring to warrant adding a layer of bureaucracy to the voting process

    Wow, imagine if you had to have a picture ID to receive government assistance!

    Holder and Obama are nothing but race baiters that are out to fundamentally change America.

    And where's the evidence that Health Care is so "broken" as to warrant not only a layer but an entire ream of bureaucracy?

    If we required a voter to simply die their finger as proof of having voted once, it would be considered an affront and infringement.

    One person, one vote, one time. And prove you are who you are.

    The evidence is 30 million uninsured Americans, escalating healthcare costs, escalating bankruptcies due to inability to pay for treatment......
