A dieing Democrat sets up a hospital bed at Texas senate chamber to block anti-immigration bill. The politician is a Texas state senator, one of 11 Democrats in the Texas Senate. The bill that they are attempting to block - not a radical idea that would shock the US... rather a bill requiring voters to show a) one form of photo ID, or b) two forms of non-photo ID WHILE VOTING... That's right, enforcing the "you have to be a citizen to vote" rule...
Let me break it down for you like this:
Texas population: 23,500,000
Illegals in Texas: 1,500,000 (i.e. 6.4% of the Texas population is illegal)
New Illegals in TX/year: 54,000
so 7% of potential voters at the polls in Texas are not even US citizens. And as the state is working to ensure that citizens are not being disenfranchised by non-citizens, the state Democrats are working ever harder to block them.
And when elections are more and more coming down to the "every vote counts" factor, I think a 1.5 Million vote swing could have unheard of results! Especially from non-citizens.
I ask you this: Where is the justice? What could the Democrats be thinking? And who does this move stand to benefit?
Now I know that this is more of a Nationalist point of view rather than a Conservative point of view... but that is the very nature of being an American... a strong sense of National Pride, and the will to defend our homeland!
