This week, President Barack Obama received some upsetting news from a federal justice when he ruled that states may pass laws to avert any kind of cheating or foul play when voting, by making compulsory for voters to show identification at the ballot.
This came after the League of Women Voters and the Obama administration teamed up to try to block voter ID laws in the states of Kansas, Alabama and Georgia. According to Western Journalism, they argued that federal laws do not require ID and therefore these states were putting an extra burden on people who wanted to vote.
Judge Richard J. Leon, however, wasn’t having any of it. He defied Obama by siding with the states in his ruling.
“The organizational plaintiffs and their members will undoubtedly have to expend some additional time and effort to help individuals,” he wrote. “But let’s be candid: doing so pales in comparison to explaining to the average citizen how the [Affordable Care Act] or tax code works!”
Leon added that the laws did not create “real and irreparable harm.”
The states have been fighting to put in place voter ID measures as a way to combat fraud.
“This is a very real problem and the only way to solve the problem is to require proof of citizenship on the front end,” said Kansas’ Secretary of State Kris W. Kobach.
However, Obama and his minions are still claiming that requiring ID is a barrier to voting and plan to appeal the ruling.
“While we are disappointed in today’s decision, we will appeal to protect the critical rights of voters in these three states, especially during this election year,” said Chris Carson, president of the League of Women Voters.
Patriots everywhere have spoken out to applaud Leon for his ruling.
“Liberals insist that voter I.D. is racist. Because it is somehow way out of line to ask minorities to acquire an ID and there is no way that people living in urban communities can get it together enough to get an ID. In reality, that’s a pretty racist position to hold,” wrote Andrew Mark Miller onYoung Conservatives. “This is a big win for people that think voter integrity is important. Sanity prevailed today.”
We are happy to finally see a judge that will stand up to Obama and isn’t afraid to disobey our incompetent President. Share this narrative if you support Judge Leon’s attitude and defiance to Obama.
