A Law in the Michigan Legislature proposes that all voters need to show ID – using the argument that you have to show ID to rent a movie, so you should have to show it to vote.
But HOLD IT!!!!! The Dems. and NAACP say this is unfair! It would discourage blacks from voting (then the Dems could lose Detroit – and thus Michigan) because they wouldn’t want to jump through hoops to get an ID (you mean go down to Secretary of State and get a FREE ID or just sign an affidavit AT THE POLLS).
Come on – is the NAACP racist against blacks – are blacks really this LAZY? NO! All you have to do is sign a piece of paper saying you are who you claim – true if you LIE – then you’re in big trouble, but isn’t the NAACP all about JUSTICE?</sarcasm>.
The NAACP and our wonderful governor say they’ll fight this – but I hope the republicans win. Governor Granholm said we need to tear down barriers to voting, and Hansen Clark, Detroit’s Rep. to the MI House said “people won’t be comfortable signing things because they don’t trust the gov’t” – well – get over it – you have nothing to fear unless you’re lying or evading taxes or something.
I don’t know why/how – but as of now – it’s up to the Secretary of State – so hopefully our wonderful smart (republican) S.O.S. Terry Lynn Land will make ID required!
If you’re too lazy to get an ID or sign a paper – then you should NOT be voting anyway!
