(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Eric Holder: Opposes Texas Voter ID Law


Holder's DOJ in stellar form once again:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department's civil rights division on Monday objected to a new photo ID requirement for voters in Texas because many Hispanic voters lack state-issued identification.

Texas follows South Carolina as the second state in recent months to become embroiled in a court battle with the Justice Department over new photo ID requirements for voters.

Photo ID laws have become a point of contention in the 2012 elections. Liberal groups have said the requirements are the product of Republican-controlled state governments and are aimed at disenfranchising people who tend to vote Democratic — African-Americans, Hispanics, people of low-income and college students.

Proponents of such legislation say the measures are aimed at combating voter fraud. But advocacy groups for minorities and the poor dispute that and argue there is no evidence of significant voter fraud.

But here's the most important paragraph in the story, direct from the office of Captain Obvious:
In a letter to Texas officials that was also filed in the court case in Washington, the Justice Department said Hispanic voters in Texas are more than twice as likely than non-Hispanic voters to lack a driver's license or personal state-issued photo ID. The department said that even the lowest estimates showed about half of Hispanic registered voters lack such identification.

Most rational American citizens would posit, then, having read the above: "might this not be because those 'Hispanics' mentioned are illegal?"

Clearly, the Obvious may in fact be too obvious for our federal gubmint officials.

Try this scenario on for size:

Let's say Canada was in turmoil. Let's say Canadians were starting to depart Canada and simply walk over their frontier to the border and cross with impunity -- as occurs on our southern border. However, let's say that it was common knowledge that most illegal Canadians had a history of voting either Republican or Conservative.

With that in mind, you and I both know that "securing" the border would become a massive priority, there would be voter ID laws and swarms of DOJ agents making checks at businesses throughout the nation. Deportations would occur on a massive level and the government would be screaming for more agents and armed soldiers on that border frontier.

Because Canadians wouldn't generally vote for Demorats.

The Obama regime once again exhibits its bottomless bucket of BULLSHIT...

If you don't have an ID you can't register to vote or to do most anything else in this nation..

All Obama and Company are doing is widening the great divide in their quest to garner more Hispanic votes, even if those voters are still dripping WET!

Ever correct, TF. Let's just continue to turn the USA into Mexico because, after all, Mexico is working so WELL for Mexicans, is it not?

The weasel continues to do what he does best.

TF, is exactly correct. No ID then you cannot vote, period.

Proof of American citizenship is a must if you plan to vote. NO EXCEPTIONS!

"If you don't have an ID you can't register to vote or to do most anything else in this nation.."

Not with ACORN and other fraudulent NGO organizations. There, you can register to vote and get advice on how to run a brothel exploiting imported sex "workers" (read slaves) who are minors.

In November of '09:
"Holder’s Justice Department released a legal opinion last week that allows the Obama administration to ignore the will of Congress which has voted overwhelmingly to suspend federal funding of ACORN until at least Dec. 18. He’s also ignored the 88-page report on ACORN’s systemic corruption and flagrant racketeering activities that was issued this summer by Republican investigators on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee."

If you ID at the polling stations, heh, well that's a bit more work than these hoaxers can muster.

How we got into allowing NGOs to register voters I'll never know. Some things should never be farmed out.
