Destroying Your Vote

Both citizens and non-citizens are included in the census

Voter ID laws have been challenged because liberal Democrats deem them racist. I guess that’s because they see blacks as being incapable of acquiring some kind of government-issued identification. Interesting enough is the fact that I’ve never heard of a challenge to other ID requirements as racist, such as those: to board a plane, open a charge account, have lab work done or cash a welfare check. Since liberal Democrats only challenge legal procedures to promote ballot-box integrity, the conclusion one reaches is that they are for vote fraud prevalent in many Democrat-controlled cities.

There is another area where the attack on ballot-box integrity goes completely unappreciated. We can examine this attack by looking at the laws governing census taking. As required by law, the U.S. Census Bureau is supposed to count all persons in the U.S. Those to be countedinclude citizens, legal immigrants and non-citizen long-term visitors. The law also requires that illegal immigrants be a part of the decennial census. The estimated number of illegal immigrants ranges widely from 12 million to 30 million. Official estimates put the actual number closer to 12 million.

Both citizens and non-citizens are included in the census and thus affect apportionment counts. Counting illegals in the census undermines one of the fundamental principles of representative democracy — namely, that every citizen-voter has an equal voice. Through the decennial census-based process of apportionment, states with large numbers of illegal immigrants, such as California and Texas, unconstitutionally gain additional members in the U.S. House of Representatives thereby robbing the citizen-voters in other states of their rightful representation.

now you know why the ruling class bureaucrats support "sanctuary" - they are competing for all those "immigrants" to expand their "representation"

Good point about the representation increasing because of illegal presence. Representation without taxation, although I do acknowledge that a lot of illegals pay taxes. Just not as much as they cost the system as a group.

Why do I have to have an ID to drive or buy a weapon? These are rights I have as a natural born citizen. These are not the rights of a person that breaks our laws by entering this Country ILLEGALLY. Illegals might pay taxes but they get 10 x that in Federal / State benefits, tax credits when they file and get huge returns. Then they send all of it back to their home country taking it out of our economy.

The right to drive 3:16? That's a new one.
