Georgia citizens were handed another crushing defeat this week under the hob nailed boots of an out of control US federal judiciary. The Georgia Voter Verification System was just rejected by the US Department of Justice on the dubious basis that it unfairly singles out blacks, Hispanics, and Asians by making it harder for them to vote. How does this law allegedly discriminate against ‘minorities’? It simply asks them, as it does everybody else to provide proof of US citizenship. All you need to do is supply your social security number and a valid driver’s license. As long as it’s legitimate, you’re permitted to vote.
Sounds reasonable doesn’t it?
But when you have a sitting President who was elected without the prerequisite background check to determine if he himself is a natural born US citizen – a requirement to be a US president – we can all understand why anything goes in today’s America. And anything will go on future elections in Georgia if the Federal government is permitted to swing their totalitarian club at the State of Georgia. Without sound verification of voter citizenship, virtually anybody can walk into a polling place and vote. This is perfect if you want to promote voter fraud. As a former poll clerk, I remember the process well. It was more than fair and legitimate voters got their opportunity to vote for the candidate of their choice without any threats of intimidation.
Compare this to an incident in PA, where uniformed Black Panthers armed with nightsticks stood ‘guard’ at a Philadelphia polling place during the last presidential election. Voters were intimidated and even threatened while receiving racial slurs. The incident was so provocative, a prominent civil rights activist from the 1960’s was prompted to call it ‘the most blatant form of voter intimidation’ he had ever seen. Worse than events reported in Mississippi during the 60’s. The Justice Department initiated a suit against the 3 Black Panthers involved but like magic, all the charges were dropped.
The federal government exists to serve the state governments not the other way around. That’s the way it was intended by our Founding Fathers and is evident in the US Constitution. Georgia needs strong leadership at all levels in its state government to stand up for the people of Georgia and tell Washington to go home and not come back.
Consider this wording from HR470, a bill currently sitting in the Georgia State Legislature: WHEREAS, any act of Congress, executive order of the President of the United States, or judicial opinion of any federal court which assumes a power not delegated to the government of the United States and which serves to diminish the liberty of any of the several states or their citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution by the government of the United States. And be thrown out! This bill should thrill all Georgia freedom lovers and serve as a reminder to the federal government – don’t tread on us. Call your state representatives today and ask them to support HR470.
