I wanted to post an article applauding the Supreme Court's majority decision to uphold the requirement for approved photo ID to vote in the early election which starts today in Texas, but I could only find Leftist slanted articles on page 1 decrying the decision when I did a Google search, so I'll review the basic facts of the story myself, since the Leftist biased articles can't seem to do that.
Rick Perry is the current Republican governor of Texas. He is not running for re-election. Greg Abbott is the Republican candidate for governor and Wendy Davis is the Democrat candidate. The Obama administration and their Marxist change agents want Wendy Davis to become the governor of Texas, which is traditionally held by Republicans. The Marxist change agents don't want approved photo ID because illegal aliens can't obtain approved photo ID and therefore, they can't vote in an election they are not entitled to vote in. That makes the Marxist change agents really, really angry. They are accustomed to getting their way in all things and they're howling mad that things haven't gone their way in this one instance. You can read their specious and fatuous objections by doing a Google search.
So for this one early election at least, a bit of common sense and sanity has descended upon Texas and only qualified U.S. citizens will be given the opportunity to vote in the early election.
Hallelujah for small victories for the American people and its constitutional foundation. It's so nice to experience a breath of fresh air once in a while. The takeover onslaught can be so tiring and unrelenting.
Supreme Court Allows Texas Use Of Controversial Voter ID Law
It’s rulings like this that reminds us of why it’s important to vote. The U.S. Supreme Court said Saturday that Texas can use its controversial voter identification law can go into effect for now — a decision that comes two days before early voting in the state.
A majority of the justices rejected an emergency request from the Justice Department and civil rights groups to prohibit the state from requiring voters to produce certain forms of photo identification in order to cast ballots. Three justices dissented.
The law was struck down by a federal judge last week, but a federal appeals court had put that ruling on hold. The judge found that roughly 600,000 voters, many of them black or Latino, could be turned away at the polls because they lack acceptable identification. Early voting in Texas begins Monday.
The Supreme Court’s order was unsigned, as it typically is in these situations. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissented, saying they would have left the district court decision in place.
The law sets out seven forms of approved ID — a list that includes concealed handgun licenses but not college student IDs, which are accepted in other states with similar measures.
Republicans insist on placing obstacles in the way of voters trying to cast their ballot and hopefully these tactics will inspire more people to get out the vote. Voters in Texas have a dismal voter turnout and apparently Republicans want to keep it that way.
