The Liberal attacks on current and pending Voter ID legislation continued over the weekend of August 24, 2013 with a new spokesperson. Colin Powell, rented from the has-been warehouse, made the rounds on the Sunday talk-show circuit taking to task those evil Republicans and their terribly unjust campaign supporting Voter ID legislation, and the huge disadvantage voter ID laws would create for poor minorities.
Of course there are no facts that support such allegations. Nor have the Liberals bothered to explain exactly how voter ID laws hinder voting. In fact there is not one court case proving Voter ID laws restricted and/or hindered any legitimate voter from casting their vote.
While Powell insisted “that there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud, the very premise of the identification statutes,” there are several cases of voter fraud and voter intimidation tied directly to the election and subsequent re-election of Barrack Obama. The fact is voter fraud is more common than they would have you believe. In my own state it was reported today ten registered voters used the same home address yet none of them lived there.
Powell warned the Republicans that strict Voter ID laws would “backfire.” then outlined the solution, as he sees it; “Here’s what I say to my Republican friends: The country is becoming more diverse,” You say you want to reach out, you say you want to have a new message. You say you want to see if you can bring some of these voters to the Republican side. This is not the way to do it.”
Powell then suggested “The way to do it is to make it easier for them to vote and then give them something to vote for that they can believe in.”
No, we do not need to make it easier to cheat, nor do we need weaker laws and even weaker law enforcement officials. What we need is for people to have the assurance that their vote counts. People need to know that their vote will not be nullified by voter fraud. That’s what they need, that’s what “they can believe in.”
As far as any “new message” is concerned; the Conservative message needs to revert back to its roots of Defense of the freedom guaranteed by the Constitution, smaller government, governmental fiscal responsibility, and the enforcement of the law of the land.
Powell then revisited the past as justification to strike down Voter ID legislation said “You need a photo ID. Well, you didn’t need a photo ID for decades before.” “Is it really necessary now?” Well Mr. Powell in the decades before people didn’t lock their doors, left the keys in the car, and were able to walk down the street at night without fear of being attacked by punks and gang-bangers. But that has changed as well.
As a diversionary tactic Powell took the opportunity to address the Trayvon Martin saga calling the verdict “questionable,” as if it had anything at all to do with the subject at hand. The only thing questionable about the verdict in the Zimmerman trial was why there was a trial at all.
Of course there was nothing ‘questionable’ about the shooting death of the Australian foreign student by 2 black teens who claimed they shot the man because they were “bored,” nor the beating death of an 80 year old WWII veteran by 2 black teens.
Anyway Powell was sent to continue the formal attack on voter ID legislation, even as Attorney General, Eric Holder, files a lawsuit against the state of Texas over their Voter ID laws, but why?
Liberals fear they will lose the Senate in 2014 so they must muster every vote, legal or not, and get their vote counted. Voter ID legislation is a hindrance to voter fraud. Not because it hinders legitimate voters, but because it would prevent much of the voter fraud that took place in 2008 and 2012.
In the light of the dismal performance by the Obama Administration, who is collecting scandals faster than rabbits having sex and whose policy failures are so numerous they are becoming expected, an all-out effort is what they need to win, by hook or crook.
While Powell continues the drum beat over Voter ID legislation, we must counter by contacting our representatives and demand that Voter ID legislation be passed in every state until all 50 states have Voter ID laws. We must be prepared to state our position, defend our reasons, and refute the propaganda that is sure to come from the left.
The second call to arms is to get every single registered Conservative, Republican, Independent, and Democrat who cares about the future of this country, to the polls, take control of both houses of Congress and stop the destructive agenda this president is carrying out on this country while Harry Reid and the rest of the Liberals in Congress sit by and do nothing.
We must counter this onslaught by an onslaught of our own – forcing the Voter ID issue until it becomes the law of the land.
We cannot have a repeat of 2012 where lazy-ass Republicans didn’t vote because Mitt Romney wasn’t the ‘perfect’ candidate, or they felt like their vote didn’t matter because of the cheating on the other side.
Give the Liberals credit, they found the perfect spokesman in Powell to speak out against Voter ID legislation; a black man growing up during the civil rights struggle, with an excellent military career and having served with a Republican President, Powell was a good choice.
