Judge rules states can demand proof of citizenship from voters

Posted on March 20, 2014   
 

 


Isn’t it amazing that a judge actually has to rule this way? This should be blatantly obvious.

Check it out:

A U.S. District Court judge ruled Wednesday that Arizona and Kansas can require anyone registering to vote to prove their citizenship and the federal Election Assistance Commission cannot block them.

The ruling is a boost for states’ rights and marks a setback for President Obama and other liberals who fought stiffer voter ID checks with an argument that they reduce voter turnout.

“This is a huge victory for me, personally, for the states of Kansas and Arizona, and for the whole cause of states’ rights,” said Kansas Secretary of State Kris W. Kobach, who led the challenge. “We’ve seen so many defeats recently in areas where the federal government has been encroaching on states’ authorities, and this time the good guys won.”
 
In his ruling, Judge Eric F. Melgren said the EAC, which Congress created after the 2000 Florida voting fiasco, must accede to states’ requests for people to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

This is great news.  I'm curious to hear some analysis--how solid is the legal basis for the decision and what are the chances of another judge turning reason and logic on its head & striking down this ruling?

Really great news!

Yep, it's a damned shame that it took a judge to make this ruling.

It's a start. Hopefully, it will not end with this ruling.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Don't forget, Obama and Holder have already told law enforcement officials (prosecutors) they can ignore any law they don't like.  What a coincidence! :whistle:

When I first moved back to the town I grew up in, I was asked for registration and driver's license before I voted.  This by little old ladies that knew me since I was born. 

Now, depending on which precinct I'm voting in, one of the election judges is my daughter's mother in law, and in the other, it's my son's mother in law.  And I still get asked for ID.

What's wrong with the rest of the country?
