In the U.S., one needs an ID for a variety of reasons. Boarding a plane, a bus or a train requires an ID. Getting into an R-rated movie, buying a pack of smokes or a beer requires an ID. Using a credit card can require an ID as does buying a car, driving a car or registering a car.
Yet, for some (very obvious) reason, Democrats abhor the idea of requiring an ID to vote. For a political party that relies upon widespread voter fraud and shady tricks to win elections, any law that aims to clean-up the process and make it more honest is a threat to their election strategies.
And, of course, they denounce voter ID laws in the most Democrat way possible: they shout that they are “racist.”
To try and combat these effective laws, Democrats wage war on them in the media and in the courts with carrying success.
However, on Friday, the Supreme Court dealt a significant blow to the left’s hopes of rigging November’s election; the Supreme Court ruled that Texas’ voter ID law will remain in effect for the time being, likely beyond November.
The Court denied an emergency claim by a coalition of Hispanic advocacy groups and Democrat lawmakers who alleged that the law discriminates. The issue at hand was whether Texas’ law could be enforced while pending greater consideration in federal courts.
The lawmakers who hoped to infuse voter rolls with illegals, non-eligible voters and repeat voters sought to prohibit enforcement of the law until it can be settled in the courts. However, the Supreme Court issued a blunt, unsigned order that denied the request.
Evidently tired of the voter fraud so fervently promoted by the left and illegal immigrant proponents, Texas passed the law that is one of the strictest voter ID laws in the country. It requires government-issued photo ID in order to vote.
While the Supreme Court’s denial does not settle the issue ultimately, the denial is a huge win for conservatives and those who advocate for fair elections as the order could have tremendous implications for other state laws that are in limbo within the federal court system. It’s possible that other states will be allowed to enforce their voter ID laws until the matter can be resolved and that could have a tremendous effect on providing a fair election in November- a concept that should delight lovers of democracy, but should infuriate those who routinely rely upon voter fraud to advance their political agenda.
