Why Voter ID Laws Set A Dangerous Precedent

After Trump’s ludicrous claim that millions of undocumented Americans voted for Hillary in the recent presidential election, many republicans are now calling for stricter voter ID laws requiring people to present proof of citizenship at the voting booths, even if they are already registered to vote. And while this sounds like a reasonable idea in theory, the reality is that voter ID’s are both impractical and immoral.

Study after study has shown that womyn and minorities are far less likely to have voter ID’s than white males, making the calls for new voter ID laws from white male republicans rather suspect. In addition, due to poverty and lack of opportunity, victim  groups are less able to obtain voter ID’s. Conservatives argue that voter ID’s are available for free, but the reality is the system is rigged against womyn and people of color, and gathering together the necessary documents to obtain a proof of citizenship is in many cases an impossible task for these people.

Voter ID laws reek of sexism and racism, and are most likely grounded in bigotry rather than a genuine concern for the rule of law. There are multiple stories of people battling to get a passport or driving license, and being rejected time and time again. In many cases these people are disabled and lack the know-how or resources to go through the approval process, raising the question of whether voter ID laws are also ableist.

It is also at the height of bigotry to suggest that undocumented Americans who have been living and working in the United States for years, should be denied the right to vote for the democrats. In an interview shortly before the 2016 presidential vote, Obama stated that if you vote, you are by definition a citizen, regardless of whether you are documented.

Voter ID laws are grounded in nothing but hate and ignorance, and conservatives who suggest them should be shamed for the bigots that they are. Everyone living in America is an American, whether or not they are documented, and they should all be able to vote. Everyone except for white males consistently votes for democrats, socialism and communism wherever they are in the world, which is why white males fear them. America’s flyover states need to accept that America is no longer the place it was 50 years ago. This is a new time, and the new America is socialist, like the rest of the world. Haters need to get with the times or get out of the way, because the tide of progressivism is rising, and cannot be stopped.

Voter ID laws are RACIST. People of Color should be able to vote as many times as they want.

Institutional RACISM

agree. Everyone in the WORLD is an American, just most of them undocumented. We should be spending money not only to poll Africans in Africa for president but also be providing them welfare checks there.

Because colonialism destroyed them and stole all their resources which is why they’re so poor. If you look at your cellphone, all that stuff was stolen from Africa. It’s not a reconfiguration of effectively worthless material like silicon or hydrocarbons into something very useful, it was stolen from Africa.

Whites also went to Africa and stole all the web searches and are storing them at Google now. Tricknology at its worst.

The Zeroth Amendment grants all people of the world, especially the most wretched, the right to come to the United States at any time and receive benefits. So it’s high time they got the vote too. Democracy is SACROSANCT, almost as much so as the Holocaust. We need to ensure more Marion Barry and Kwame Kilpatricks get elected! PROGRESS

People were mighty proud when India introduced the voter ID. Every eligible voter who wanted to vote needs the voter ID. This was then sought to be “purified” by linking with biometric ID Aadhaar, so that one person cannot have multiple voter IDs.
The voter ID database (800+ million Indians) with photos, address, and date of birth was freely available, without any access restrictions. All the money spent was to create a database that someone like Amazon, or foreign intelligence services would have found very useful. In fact there were projects on elance.com, offering 20 or 30 dollars for a certain district’s or state’s database imported into excel.

With voter database done, and distributed to interested parties, Indians were coaxed, threatened, or tricked into getting Aadhaar. Today 99% of adult Indians have biometric ID (if official numbers are to be believed).

India has lots of immigrants. Hard to believe, that this is the case, in a highly populated country. Nepalis can freely travel to India, many work as security guards, even far south. Bangladeshi muslims usually claim to come from Assam, an Indian State, and they work, like Mexicans, in hotels, farms, and construction industry. These people are hardly concerned about elections, they are more bothered about their daily wage, and an opportunity to go back, when they have made enough.

Voter ID in US, like in India, would be the “foundation” (“al qaida” in Arabic, “aadhaar” in Hindi), for converting people into chipped cattle.
May be that was the plan after all, to find someone like Trump, to lay the “foundation”.

trav777

what’s wrong with being chipped cattle? Are you specieist or do you have something to hide??

Something to hide? Yes.
A tiger has stripes, that lets it blend with the grass and shrubs. A tiger hunts alone, and is much more brave than lion, there is no comparison. Lions hunt in a group, and are cowards (outside the pride or pack).
Nature works like that, much of the richness and diversity in nature comes from the ability of animals to hide, when they choose to.
If I had gold or food, I’ll not want everyone to know exactly how much I have. Or if I run a gold store, I’ll not transport gold, with the knowledge of everyone.
A fellow like Bill Gates wants a “transparent” society, because he is aggressive and wealthy enough to control people. Even then, he uses multiple mechanisms to hide his intent, his people, his connections with media, activists, and government regulators. Also it is ridiculous to believe that a wealthy guy like Gates, is in the forefront of fighting corruption, by bringing in cashless economy in India. After all his wealth of 75 billion dollars is the very definition of corruption.
Same with a fellow called Nandan Nilekani in India, who conned the government into adopting Aadhaar biometric ID. One of the apparent advantages of Aadhaar, is the ability to track transactions, so corrupt can be punished. But this guy is worth 2 billion dollars, which in India is the very definition of corruption.

When it comes to real assault, say synchronized mass vaccination, or attacking Iraq, the criminals come out into the open. So most criminals can be caught when they commit the crime, or just before they commit it. But treating everyone as criminal, chipping them and putting them under surveillance, actually creates more criminals. Those who do the surveillance, have power and knowledge to commit serious crimes. And police now have lots of useless information in computer systems, that distracts them from looking a person in the eye and figuring out if that person is up to no good.

I do not think that caw needs stripes in order to hide in the grass. Hence, you should not be afraid of being chipped and having all your movements/actions recorded.

Whether Trump succeeds or not, whether he has been setup by the elites to further the agenda or not, things are not looking good. In a few years breakdown will happen. Having a low profile, or a misleading profile, plus food and resource backups, and a very open mind about the limits of technology and globalization, will be useful to escape the chaos.
Being transparent, and using bestest solutions from Google, and Microsoft may be useful today, but not for what is headed your way.
Transparency is not how nature works. Not being transparent the way govt expects us to be, doesn’t mean that we have no advance warning of criminal intent, and criminals will be free to do what they want. Transparency as understood today is like feminism, simplistic and idiotic.

You didn’t answer the question.

Are you specieist or do you have something to hide?

Womyn and minorites are not the only victim of Voter ID discrimination. Imagine the kind of loops dead people must go through to get registered!

Black Lives Matter

Deceased People of Color were prohibited from voting during slavery and segregation, and they are prohibited from voting today. Oh, but Trump is not a racist, right???

trav777

Deceased is an offensive term to the lifeforce-challenged

Due to that disability, they should be compensated and allowed to vote as many times as they want, anywhere they want.

Even with biometric ID, a person who is alive can be certified dead, if a person (in govt) changes the dead persons biometrics with biometrics of someone alive. One can always create a mismatch between what is real and what is in the database.
Only now people will have to work harder, if the database is wrong. At some point the database will be regarded as perfect, and correction will be tough.
Any low tech mechanism will work with enough honest people. If there aren’t enough honest people, all advanced technology will be just more work.
It is better to have dead people vote, than to have live people hysterical about the possibility that they’ll be marked dead in the database by some crook.

A Jew who sent a Palestinian to Heaven and to his reward of 40 virgins gets 18 months in jail.

I presume this jail term was for him either “enabling” Muslim religious practices or not used a bullet dipped in pigs fat. It is so difficult to sift out the truth from these events half a world away.

Why would a Jew dip a bullet in lard? Not kosher for a Jew. If you are smart enough, you’ll understand that pork or wild boar meat is not good for humans.

A Korean BBQ joint will put slices of pork on the grill, and your host will pour sake into your glasses, saying pork is the ideal meat, with neat packaging – fat on the outside, fat on the inside, and muscle in the middle. Delicious!
But beware, Jews and Muslims may not know the exact reasons why pork is regarded as unclean, but they are right. It has something to do with genetic compatibility between pigs and humans.

A Muslim that comes into contact with pork cannot go to Heaven.

No 40 virgins
No mana from heaven
No life of luxury

Just a hot hot HOT time!

Technically pork is unclean because it was a major source of worms. Not so much nowadays.

Scientifically, because it is an omnivore. its meat tends to accumulate heavy metals and is less healthy then grass eaters.

Why the mere contact with pig parts will prevent a Muslim from going to Heaven is a mystery, but a fact that can be used.

Border fences painted with a pigs fat oil based paint would serve well to keep out illegals, coated welfare cards would prevent welfare cheaters and coated door handles to a store, would reduce the likelihood of robbery.

Feminine products that include pork fat would make white women a heaven denying article to Muslims.
