You really can't make this stuff up...

In the same week that saw the NAA(L)CP petition the United Nations to intervene in state voter ID laws and our derelict Attorney General going to Texas to add his subsidized two cents on the issue, we are given this fantastic photo.

Continued below the fold.

According the article, the International Association of Machinists demanded members provide photo ID in order "to ensure that ineligible outsiders didn't cast ballots and distort the election results, diluting the voting power of legitimately eligible workers."

Is it just me or does that line of reasoning sound very familiar?

No votes yet

Obviously this photo has been doctored by the Koch Bros. to further their agenda of requiring photo id's when voting in elections.
Teamster President Richard Trumka has stated that Republicans are " doing their damnedest to make sure the electorate in 2012 looks nothing like the electorate of 2008 — disenfranchising new voters with voter ID laws, suppressing student voters, and a whole lot more. "
So it's not really possible that a union would require photo ID for a simple contract vote. The sign probably originally read "never required" to vote.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

So.... this means the International Association of Machinists are racists then right? Because that's what Voter-ID laws are intended to do.... prevent minorities from voting.

"Because that's what Voter-ID laws are intended to do.... prevent minorities from voting".
Why because they can't afford an ID, how many minorities that truly can’t afford an ID vote anyway, Go get a state ID, I’m sure those who were really pay attention and are concerned about voting could find 7 or 8 bucks to get a state ID. The whole issue is simple to me it prevents voter fraud period.

I really don't believe that DTOM. I was just using the liberal talking point.

I agree with you and have noted several times that it's easy to get an ID for free. Most liberals when making this point sum everything up into driver's license, of which, is just one form of acceptable identification.

I've also noted several times that voter ID laws are currently especially tough on absentee voters as the law stands yet they ignore that fact when using their talking point.

For the most part the electoral fraud is wide spread probably more so in absentee voting. It all comes down to gaining or holding on to power from both sides.
