The World Requires Voter ID, but George Soros and Hillary Clinton Are Determined the U.S. Won’t

It’s been over seven years since the Supreme Court, in a 6–3 decision that was written by liberal favorite John Paul Stevens, declared that voter-ID laws don’t constitute an undue burden on people attempting to vote. But that hasn’t stopped liberals from fighting in legislatures and courts against those laws and other efforts to promote voter integrity. The lawsuits are often brought by Marc Elias, who doubles as the attorney for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And their efforts have paid off: Only about 18 states currently require a photo ID to vote.

Last month, the New York Times reported that billionaire liberal George Soros was largely bankrolling the multi-million-dollar effort. Democratic-party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has accused Republicans of trying to bring back Jim Crow because “photo I.D. laws, we think, are very similar to a poll tax.”

Election observers in other countries find this kind of rhetoric preposterous. Almost all industrialized democracies — and most that are not — require voters to prove their identity before voting. 

Take Greece, not considered a shining example of government efficiency. When James O’Keefe, the guerrilla videographer who busted ACORN and NPR with sting videos, visited Greece this month, he tried to vote in that country’s referendum on a European Union bailout. When he tried to vote at a polling place in downtown Athens, the following exchange took place (starts at the 57-second mark of the tape):

James O’Keefe: Can I vote?

Election official: No.

JO: No.

Election official: There is no way to vote.

JO: You have to see ID. You have to see identification as a Greek citizen?

Election official: Yes. Furthermore, you have to written in this catalogues in order to vote.

JO: And you have to show your ID?

Election official: Yes, of course.

JO: Of course. Well, in the United States we don’t have to do that.

Election official: You will go to vote and you will not give an ID?

JO: Correct. Yes.

Election official: And how they know, you are the one that you say you are?

The vast majority of countries require voter ID — usually photo ID — to prevent fraud and duplicate votes at the polls. Our neighbors do. Canada requires voter ID. Mexico’s “Credencial para Votar” has a hologram, a photo, and other information embedded in it, and it is impossible to effectively tamper with. Confidence in the integrity of elections has soared since its introduction in the 1990s.

The vast majority of countries require voter ID — usually photo ID — to prevent fraud and duplicate votes at the polls.

At a 2012 conference in Washington at which election officials from more than 60 countries met to observe the U.S. presidential election, most were astonished that so many U.S. states don’t require voter ID.

tell me where George soros is I will tell where we can find some one to punch his ticket

Another issue, That has been Ignored and Lip Serviced By the 2 Parties, for decades, But was really given that One Two Socialist Anti-America Unconstitutional Punch By Barack Hussein Obama and His Go To, Lawless America Killer Eric Holder. 

But we do not hear or see these 2 Parties, actively, fighting for uncorrupt elections, State by State..?

Uncorrupt Elections, State by State Verifiable Photo Voter I.D... Is absolutely a Requirement, But there is much more that is dangerously, corruptly lawlessly and Constitutionally Wrong.?

States that ignore to clear their Election Rolls Of Known Deaths, That are several elections Old, 

Judicial Watch,  has research available that will blow you away, On Election fraud, abuses, tampering ( Federal Felonies )  

Just  shows you how incompetent Hiterly would be in the WH, anything to promote VOTER FRAUD, thats the  democratic party way!   States Right to control who can vote,NOT the Fed!  That is how the democraps get elected by using illegals to vote!  Post American citizens around every voting / polling place and challenge anyone who can not speak English and provide Photo ID!  Then photo them and use it challenge their vote!

Does any have a dossier on sorrows!
He has his hands on everything...not enough said on this puppeteer....he's funneling $$$$ to destroy this magnificent country....time ROLL this prune into a sharia nursing home...

It wouldn't make any difference the elections are rigged from the git-go.

I AM ABOUT TO GIVE UP ON AMERICA AND CALL ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TO RETURN FOR HIS FOLLOWERS!!!

   Therefore stealing the election with Illegal votes no mater where they come from as long as they vote DEMOCRAP.

Before this bullshit gets any further down the road, I'd like to see a few hundred progressive liberal politicians arrested, charged with treason, tried and found guilty then shot for treason.  As long as they want to turn America into another banana republic, might as well treat them like the dictators they desire to emulate.

MUST HAVE I.D. TO PROVE WHO YOU ARE, then they can check you out to see if it's true.

currently the foot soldiers of the democrat party are providing illegals with all the paperwork necessary so that they will be able to walk into any voting place and pull the democrat lever. the black panthers, acorn, laraza...they are doing this by the thousands so that when nov 2016 comes around...millions of illegals will be voting. now they are wanting those prisoners in jails and prisons to vote.....its all being done in the shadows and the 2016 election will be the biggest fraud in history.

And to that they want to add 11 million new democratic voters. Talk about "Stacking the deck".

I'm currently living in Bolivia and here you absolutely need a photo ID to vote. What's more, voting is mandatory. If you don't have a "suffrage card", given you at the time time of voting, or a special dispensation given by the Electoral Court, you can't carry out any bank or legal transactions for a period of 90 days.

All travel is forbidden from 1800 hours the day before until midnight of election day, and the sale of alcoholic beverages is also restricted for 72 hours before election day. All vehicular traffic is also restricted from 0600 to 1800 hours of election day.

How's that for some tough election laws? And the Dems and the liberal left want to make us believe that presenting a State issued ID card is onerous? All I have to say to them is "Get Real"!

ALERT ALERT

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
