So, I don't know if you guys have already read this, but I just read that Obama blocked a Texas law that was passed in 2011, that required all Texas voters to have a photo ID of some sort in order to vote. According to the news feed I read, it said that the Obama administration was afraid it would hurt hispanic voters. In my understanding, if you don't have any sort of photo ID, you are more than likely an illegal alien. And at any rate, I've had to show my photo ID before I could vote here in good ole Tennessee for as long as I can remember. I'm not sure how requiring someone to show ID is hurting someones rights. It looks like a ploy to gain more hispanic and illegal alien votes to me. Just my thoughts. Here is the link.
