Default Federal judge to permanently lift Florida voter registration restrictions

Quote:
Judge Robert L. Hinkle has declared that he will grant a motion to permanently strike down the new rules once the state of Florida has dropped its case against the federal government in U.S. appeals court.

Voting rights activists have welcomed the decision, which makes permanent an temporary injunction that Hinkle granted in May, in which Hinkle called the restrictions forbidding third party groups from organizing to register voters “harsh and impractical” and said they would impose unnecessary burdens on organizations trying to ensure voter participation.

New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice has issued a press release calling the ruling “a decisive victory for Florida voters.”
Quote:
“Florida’s anti-voter law created impassable roadblocks for our volunteers, who have been bringing fellow Floridians into our democratic process for over 72 years,” explained Deirdre MacNab, President of the League of Women Voters of Florida, one of the three groups who filed suit against the state in December of 2011. “Thanks to today’s ruling, we can finally put these roadblocks behind us and concentrate on getting Floridians registered to vote. We are grateful the court recognized that the Constitution does not tolerate these types of barriers to civic participation and voter registration.”
Quote:
The League of Women Voters was joined by Rock the Vote and the Florida Public Interest Research Group Education Fund in the suit, which was filed separately from a Justice Department inquiry into the stringent new regulations, which have been revealed by a former Republican Party member to be an effort to “keep black people from voting” by conservative Republicans.

Yeah, god ****ing forbid someone actually have to prove citizenship before voting.

I don't even know why we ****ing bother even having citizenship rights anymore. Apparently, one need not actually be a citizen to have the same rights as citizens. Let's just extend our rights to anyone in the goddamn world. Let the world vote in our elections!

My contention is we can study this in mid season. Weeks before a general election is not the time to suddenly change existing voter laws.

Isn't that exactly like saying that it is a bad idea to buy an alarm system during a crime wave?

no.. It is not, Viagra I mean Virginia
There is no real reason to doubt the system in those states anyway. The organizations that register poor people don't tell people who to vote for but most are in Democrat leaning neighborhoods. Perhaps if conservatives put together a group to register vulnerable voters, they would vote more conservatively. Why don't y'all try that instead of limiting rights?

Republicans, or at least Conservatives tend to think that people who don't have the drive to seek registration on their own probably aren't going to make very many well informed voting decisions and so probably ought to stay at home on Election Day and watch Jersey Shores reruns while consuming their "medical" marijuana.

Generally, only Democrats and other Marxists actively encourage the ignorant to vote.
