can the POTUS enforce a state not to enforce a state law?
How the heck does the POTUS have jurisdiction over anyone state?
Is Obama now going to enforce states to approve gay marriage?
What other laws is the Obama Admin. going to enforce over one state in particular?
It's not his authority. It's the courts. That's why we have separation of powers.
We're awl pawthetic and kweepy and can't get giwrls. That's why we fight wobots.
It seems King Obama can enforce anything he wants in his Kingdom.
Now the freaks are on television, the freaks are in the movies. And its no longer the sideshow, its the whole show. The colorful circus and the clowns and the elephants, for all intents and purposes, are gone, and were dealing only with the freaks. - Jonathan Winters
I think anything that has to do with voting.....even in some of those really backwards places like mississippi and alabama and georgia....well...southern georgia.... anyhow.... I think that anything to do with voting must fall under some sort of federal laws..... what with the voting rights act and such.
I think we have that here in TN, not sure if it ever passed and if its been put into effect. I always have handed them my DL with my registration card when voting....some look at them...some dont.
We just can't have any laws that keep dead people from voting.
Donal Duck and Popeye need to vote too.

Sorry you feel that way Corny, but it's probably best you stay right there in good ole Volunteer land. I happen to love greatly this good ole backwards part of the South! From GA to MS, I call it all home and love it.

It is time for all good men to come to the aid of their country, for we are in deep crap.
Why is it that you need ID to cash your welfare checks, put your illegal (or legal) kid in school, get a driver's license, buy beer or cigarettes, open a bank acct. , buy a firearm, get a passport, get a green card, get a visa, get a library card, cash a check at the grocery store. But for some reason, needing one to vote is restrictive...??? Pleeeze, we're all smarter than that. Why insult the people of this country like that?
Not only that but this is one more reason why people from other civilized countries are laughing at us.

I think the reason no one in Congress has called for his impeachment is twofold: first, you could not get enough dummycrat senators to vote against him and two, I'm sure his Brown Shirts have dug up enough dirt on everyone to extort them. Whether by threat of IRS audit or sicking the EPA, OSHA, DOE, or whatever agency on you, everyone has some vulnerability and skeletons in their closets and this thug has no compuction about leveraging it to complete his coup d' etat.
Look for an emergency/ crisis in the Fall which will allow him to declare martial law, suspend Congress and complete his military takeover. Remember that private army he asked for? He's amassing it very quietly.
We are screwed

Here is why, thanks to L.B. Johnson, federal government can legally do it.
Any changes to state voting procedures have to be approved by feds.
It is outdated law, since all minorities have right to vote, and how the hell it is so hard to obtain state issued photo ID for someone who is a legal resident of the USA?!!!!!
