A Texas Federal Judge has ruled against actions to implement voter ID laws in the state of Texas. Judge Ramos decreed that “The court has found that the SB 5 [Declaration of Reasonable Impediment] process does not fully relieve minorities of the burden of discriminatory features of the law.” Quite simply this is a farce! It all but ensures that illegal voting will continue to take place.
In America, a photographic ID is required for so many different things that if you don’t own one, you are not able to access the full range of services available to most citizens. There are some states that already require strict ID laws for voting: Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Here are some things that require a photo ID (not in all states):
- Buying alcohol
- Buying cigarettes
- A bank account
- Applying for food stamps
- Applying for Welfare
- Applying for Medicaid/Social Security
- Drive/buy/rent a car
- Apply for a mortgage (in some places even to rent)
And many, many more.
To say that people are being disenfranchised by having to provide ID to vote is WRONG. People are being disenfranchised by NOT having an ID!
If you want to legally hold a rally or a protest in most states, you need to provide a photographic ID when applying. The argument could be made that those opposing ID laws actually are disenfranchising people’s right to protest.
Is there anyone in the world who really believes that calling for voters to provide evidence of who they are is based on the idea of stopping blacks and Hispanics from voting? Nobody in their right mind actually thinks this. We all know that it is the Democrats seeking to get as many fraudulent votes as possible, all well-organized and orchestrated by themselves.
There is little enough faith in the voting system as it is. From “hand-picked” candidates to Big Money donations, the whole system is corrupt to its very core. The one way any possible change could happen is if the real vote was scored (and of course a real count provided).
It happened with Brexit. Many people believe that the Remain side rigged the vote, but that the vote to leave was so overwhelming that it nullified even the elite’s chicanery. And many commentators think the same thing happened with Donald Trump’s election.
This was a stitch up from the start. The vast majority of polls say that people want voting integrity to be high. So where is the pushback coming from? The answer is: those who have the most to gain from fraudulent votes.

Also, every other country I’ve checked on (including such countries as Ethiopia — certainly not an anti-Black racist country) have some form of voter ID.
If there’s really people who can’t afford any form of ID (not that I believe there are), let’s just issue one for free (DMV could probably take care of it — simply issue a drivers license that says “not valid for any vehicles”). Working elections should be worth that bit of extra cost to the taxpayer (and it could even be eliminated by getting rid of other overhead).
It’s NOT WHO VOTES, it’s WHO COUNTS the VOTES that matters. Diebold counts the unverifiable/nonrecount-able/paperless/proprietary voter systems. The Government nor Sec. of State has access to the voting machines to VERIFY RESULTS. So WE the Voters couldn’t guarantee OUR VOTES where counted nor that WHO WE VOTED for actually got OUR VOTE.
This is a bunch of nonsense. Aside from Ann Coulter, show Me the MAJOR voter fraud/sters, please! Be serious, talk about chasing a Unicorn. When WE have NO PROOF OUR votes were tallied as We voted in the first place! Voter FRAUD starts with Diebold. But, why fix the OBVIOUS when We can use this Voter Fraud Straw Man to purge voter rolls of likely voters.
Can’t even VERIFY RESULTS beyond what Diebold provides. And still People are worried about this Unicorn of Vote Fraud.
Been voting for 30 plus yrs. by signing my name next to my address at the Poll. Only time I had a problem was when I ask about Diebold. The Poll Worker sheepishly admitted that there was ON WAY TO VERIFY VOTES. It was totally Diebolds call. Not too reassuring is it?
I know vote fraud, blah, blah blah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Diebold loves this: Look a Unicorn, never mind the Program changing your vote!
This government uses the excuse of discrimination to hide crime. Those states that do not have voter IDs, use only mail in ballots, and the use of Diebold machines is an out right admission that they are engaging in voter fraud. As long as any government uses vote fraud, they cannot prove they are the legitimate government.
Diebold changed their name to Premier over 10 years ago.
Premier was sold to ES&S in 2009.
ES&S sold assets to Dominion in Canada.
Not to worry, you can still win the popular vote exploiting illegal immigrants.
Obama Allots $19 Mil to Register Immigrant Voters
Data Show LA, San Diego, San Francisco Have More Registered Voters than Eligible Adult Citizens – LA Voting Rolls Have 144% of the Total Number of Eligible Residents
Judicial Watch Warns 11 States to Clean Voter Registration Lists or Face Federal Lawsuit
So Diebold changed it’s name? So did Blackwater, doesn’t /didn’t change a thing in how they operate. Did it? Nope!
Data OWNED by Diebold/Premier says blah, blah blah! So how do We know it’s true? We can’t, because they Own the Voting System i.e.: the Election Results! They would NEVER LIE now would they?
Judicial Watch says what? So? From the people who brought us Lewinsky/Paula Jones et al. Really who cares? Faux Nuez says stuff too. Your point?
Those “clean voter rolls” you describe sure deprived a lot of legit voters with similar names of their right to vote. They simply had the similar names! To someone in another state and lost their right to vote. Great system you support there!
It’s Not WHO VOTES it’s Who Counts the Votes! Diebold/Premier OWNS everything, Results and ALL. We have No ability to Verify ANYTHING they Say or Provide as Results. What could go wrong?
I know…Obama’s fault, It’s voter fraud…Aside from Ann Coulter, I can’t think of anyone else charged with voter fraud.
In the UK we have a voter card sent to you and when you vote you take the card with you,I personally would not mind showing my DL or another form of ID.
Rather than pass a bill simply calling for voter I D . Why not just pass a bill which would throw out ALL voter rolls and require everyone who wishes to vote to register again and issue a voter I D card when they have done so. This would not only supply all voters with the I D as required, it would also clean up the voter rolls for a long time to come.
Didn’t see the author state it in this article but, the judge in this case is Hispanic. What a surprise.
