Ever since Obama stole the 2008 election with rampant voter fraud, Republicans have been trying to pass laws that require a photo ID in order to vote. President Obama, and his puppet, Attorney General Eric Holder have fought against every one of those voter ID laws. They claim that they discriminate against poor black voters that are not able to obtain a valid identification card, even though they are able to obtain enough ID to get welfare and food stamps.
In August 2012, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney supported Obama’s stance against voter ID when he said:
“And on the voter ID case, I can tell you that, as you know, this administration believes it should be easier for eligible citizens to vote – to register and vote. We should not be imposing unnecessary obstacles or barriers to voter participation.”
In a typical case of Obama hypocrisy, we learn that the US government gave the Kenyan government $53 million to help fund a program called ‘My ID My Life.’ The program assists the younger generation to obtain National identification cards. Kenyan law requires that all citizens have the national ID cards before they are allowed to register to vote. Supposedly, the program helped to get over 500,000 people registered to vote prior the Kenyan elections held in March of this year.
So how does Obama and his cronies justify paying millions of dollars, that we don’t have, to help Kenyans get ID cards that are necessary for voter registration while at the same time legally challenging similar programs and laws here in the US?
Journalist and Senior Fellow with the American Civil Rights Union, Robert Knight is asking the same question when he told OneNewsNow:
“The irony is that the president is using taxpayer dollars to promote something in Africa that he is actively suppressing in the United States, and calling people names who are promoting that very thing.”
“This is an administration, you understand, whose Justice Department struck down voter ID laws in South Carolina and Texas just before the 2012 elections and has said over and over that states that are trying to require photo ID are motivated solely by political bias.”
Obama will not allow voter ID in the US because he and many of his fellow democrats rely on voter fraud in order to win their elections. Voter IDs may have changed the entire outcome in the 2010 and 2012 elections and that scares Obama. But when it comes to his birthplace, Kenya, it’s an entirely different story. Not only does Obama endorse their National ID card being required to register to vote, but he spends OUR money to make it happen.
Time and again Barack Obama has demonstrated that he does not want to live under the same rules that he imposes on others. This is typical for a dictator of any nation. He feels that he is above the law and that allows him to so whatever he wants to whomever he wants without consequence to himself.
