Elections forms and Citizenship: Why wouldn’t States ask for proof of citizenship?


WASHINGTON, January 20, 2014 – There are a lot of states that have one simple request: Please show you are an American citizen when you register to vote.  

What could possibly be wrong with that?

American law limits the vote to American citizens.

Who would want non-citizens to vote?

The answer is the Obama Administration.

Recently, Arizona, Kansas and Georgia all asked the Federal Election Assistance Commission to change voter registration forms so that those who apply to vote are required to affirm they are American citizens.

The Federal Election Assistance Commission refused to allow Arizona, Kansas and Georgia to put that request on their election forms.

Why would the Federal Government reject that requirement? Or perhaps the better question is why would the Federal Government stop these states from demanding this information?

The answer is obvious.

The Democrats oppose any effort to have people prove their eligibility to vote in elections. They oppose voter ID laws. They oppose requirements to prove citizenship in order to vote.

If you ask Europeans about this, they will laugh as almost every European nation has a voter photo ID.

America does not.

Why do the Democrats go into hysterical outrage when any type of voter ID law is suggested?

There is only one reason for opposing every measure for ballot security. That is the Democrat Party lives off of voter fraud.

That is something that should concern every American.  Why does one major political party feel the need to win by fraud?

It is worth noting that Barack Obama did not win a single state that requires a photo voter ID.

For Republicans, if they have any prayer of winning another election, they are going to have to get serious about voter ID laws.  And someone needs to start asking why the Democrats are so invested in winning by fraud.

Every time someone illegally votes, the vote of an American is diminished.  It destroys the fabric of America and what it means to be an American.

But more than that, it says something about the character of the party that supports fraud.

A political party that must win by fraud is a threat to freedom and liberty. Because a party that is willing to win by fraud cares nothing about freedom and liberty.

This is the dirty secret of the far left.

There is a reason why leftists everywhere cheer against America and why the left is so dangerous to America.

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet. A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says. Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC. “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based. Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville. Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’ I did.” The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown. It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed. Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker. He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should. He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
