One of the most conservative federal appeals courts in the country ruled today that Texas’ voter ID is discriminatory and violates federal law. Texas’ law was crafted to make it harder for certain Texans to vote under the guise of rampant voter fraud, but the court saw through the smokescreen that those in control of the Capitol used to justify discrimination.
It’s important to remember that our nation’s Founding Fathers created three branches of government to keep politicians from running roughshod over the people. The travesties our Constitution was written to prevent have been on sad display lately at the Texas Capitol. It’s sad to hear so-called leaders denigrate Constitutional principles whenever they can’t get their way.
