North Carolina passes new laws
North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory has recently signed a law requiring voters to show a valid photo ID for voting, prohibiting same-day registration and reducing the number of days for early voting from 17 to 10.
The NAACP (The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) promptly filed a lawsuit, hoping that a supremacist judge will overturn the new law and the will of the majority.
A Washington Post poll found that 74 percent of Americans believe that people should have to show photo identification to vote.
As you probably know, liberals are making the claim that requiring photo ID is discriminatory because some minority groups may be unable to provide proper ID. But government-issued photo identification can be obtained by anyone at very low cost.
The new North Carolina law also eliminates straight-party voting. The straight-party option allows poorly informed voters to vote for all candidates from one party with just one mark, without even reading the names of the candidates.
Early voting is actually contrary to the spirit of the U.S. Constitution. Article II states, "the Congress may determine the Time of choosing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes, which Day shall be the same throughout the United States." Federal law sets the date for national elections on the Tuesday after the first Monday in November.
In addition to the helpful new voting laws, North Carolina passed stricter regulations on abortion clinics, ended teacher tenure, cut unemployment benefits, blocked the expansion of Medicaid and mandated the teaching of cursive writing.
