There’s an old saying around Texas that goes like this, ‘if you lay down with dogs, you’ll get up with fleas, especially if the dog is a ‘Yellow Dog Democrat.’ That’s exactly what the ‘Texas State Conference of NAACP Branches and the Texas House’s Mexican American Legislative Caucus’ is doing with this third challenge to the state’s Voter ID legislation.
Not too long ago, the Supreme Court upheld the voter ID law, based on outdated arguments from the Democrat party in the state. That’s not good enough for them though, and as such, they are now claiming:
‘The new law disproportionately prevent Latino and African-American citizens in Texas from voting in person and, in the totality of the circumstances, deny Latino and African American citizens an equal opportunity to participate in the political process and were enacted for that purpose.’
This argument is about as lame as the Democrat party’s notion, they can actually turn the state blue. If not in person, anybody can vote absentee if they are ‘going to be away from your county on election day and during early voting, or sick or disabled, 65 years of age or older on election day; or confined in jail, but eligible to vote.’
Problem solved right? Why the lawsuit?
Well, it’s simple. Democrats haven’t actually won anything for some time now in Texas, or the rest of the country for that matter. The party is hoping to put a halt to the voter ID law long enough to get, guess who, Wendy Davis in the governor’s mansion at any cost.
Davis can’t win an all out election in Texas and she, as well as, her party knows that. But now, here’s a bit of common sense that all involved are overlooking.
The Black community of Texas, of which, three quarters are on some kind of entitlement program, already have IDs and this makes the NAACP’s involvement completely ridiculous. In the Hispanic community, legal residents also, already have IDs, but now, the illegal immigrants, who have participated in voting in the past, do not.
Davis’ chances of winning the governor’s office has to come by way of fraud, nothing more, nothing less and that’s what this lawsuit is all about, creating opportunities through fraud.
