Yes! The Supreme Court gave Texas a victory today as they threw out a case challenging the voter ID law. Liberals argued it is racist to ask people for identification when voting. The Court said nope… it’s perfectly legal and acceptable. In fact, I call it common sense. The order passed down from the Supreme Court was unsigned… that means they don’t have to give positions or reasoning on their ruling. Finally, some sanity in the midst of all this chaos. It also means that at least five of the Justices on the Court aren’t buying the specious argument that minorities are so stupid they can’t produce ID to vote.
From The Federalist Papers Project:
The Supreme Court tossed out one of the most nonsensical liberal arguments Friday by rejecting a challenge to Texas’ voter ID law.
The argument – that it’s somehow racist to ask people to show their identification when voting – was flatly rejected by the court, denying an emergency request from Latino groups and Democratic lawmakers, Fox News is reporting.
The order was unsigned, meaning they did not explain their reasoning or even if there was any dissent.
The same people who are protesting producing ID to vote, gladly do so when they go to get food stamps or any other government service or entitlement. There is another lawsuit against the Texas law – known as SB14 – that is still pending in federal court. A federal appeals court is hearing that case next month and the Supreme Court indicated they could revisit the issue again later this year. The Texas Voter ID Law is one of the strictest in the nation. It requires a photo ID to cast a ballot. Either a driver’s license or a state ID card will suffice. Evidently, there are over 600,000 eligible voters who don’t have picture ID. It’s not exactly hard to get, so there is no excuse as far as I’m concerned. State officials contend, however, that they haven’t had to turn away large numbers of voters – proof that the law doesn’t disenfranchise many people at all. This was a frivolous suit that should never have been allowed in the first place.
