    Appeals court reinstates Texas voter ID law

    This really stick it to Liberals who like to vote a couple of times........Every state should have voter ID laws.


    Appeals court reinstates Texas voter ID law

    The ruling by a three-judge panel of the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals allows the law to be used in the November election, despite a lower judge's ruling that the law is unconstitutional. The 5th Circuit did not rule on the law's merits; instead, it determined it's too late to change the rules for the election.

    It's unconstitutional, which the majority of all the judges who have seen it agree....but now it's too late, so we're going forward with it.




    And you claim victory?





    Congratulations, I guess?

    Thanks..........All I know is in the November election the voters in Texas will be required to show ID and that is a good thing.

    Wanna see what Republicans truly believe about voting issues? Couple voter-ID laws with a law that allows people to register to vote when they get their driver's licenses and you will watch Republicans run away faster than a kid chasing an ice cream truck. The reality is....Republicans know that when more people vote they lose elections....which is why they try as hard as they possibly can to keep people from voting.

    Good. Glad to hear it. Whenever anyone has an issue to proving who they are, in order to vote, thus influence our entire legal system, I have questions about their honesty and integrity. If voting is important to you, you shouldn't mind showing that you're doing it legitimately.

    And I'm sure you have dead solid proof of this national wide-spread problem going on don't you? You're gonna pull it up for me right?

    How is it unconstitutional? I have a right to keep and bear arms. There's nothing in the 2nd Amendment about a background check, or having to produce an ID to purchase a firearm.
