Circuit Breaker

richard posnerLast week U.S. Circuit Court judge Richard A. Posner (Appointed by Ronald Reagan) weighed in heavily against Wisconsin's new voter ID laws. Here's short list of nine scathing quotes from his dissent but the one I want to share is this one:

"There is only one motivation for imposing burdens on voting that are ostensibly designed to discourage voter-impersonation fraud, if there is no actual danger of such fraud, and that is to discourage voting by persons likely to vote against the party responsible for imposing the burdens."

There is no voter fraud of any consequence in this country unless you want to count the Republican Party interference with the people's right to vote. Voter ID laws are essentially the Republican Party deciding who gets to vote and, as far as they're concerned, the fewer Democrats the better. If you're one of those who think "them other people" that don't look or sound exactly like you don't deserve to vote keep in mind that one day it will be YOUR turn to join that list. Bet on it.

Let everyone vote.

The GOP's number one goal in 2009 was to make Mr. Obama a one-term president.
So we fell five million votes short. Big deal!
Your number one goal in 2011 was to create jobs.
Yeah! We still can't believe you guys fell for that one!
Your number one goal in 2013 was to prevent Democrats from voting.
And it'd have worked, too, if it wasn't for those meddling Supreme Court judges.
So what's your goal for 2015?
What else? Make Hillary a one-term president.
