Thought Of The Day: Voter Registration



I have been trained, background checked, cleared by local law enforcement, fingerprinted like a common criminal, and paid my fees so that I can legally exercise a Constitutional right. I have no problem with flashing an ID card to exercise the PRIVILEGE of voting.

Edited to add the video.

Twice I've been pulled over since getting my concealed carry. One, for one of those "no turn on red insert the hours in tiny print no one can read". I couldn't read it, it was LATE at night so I stopped looked and turned. Lights.
I turned on the interior lights so he could see me, put my license and cc. permit on the dash. He took both, smiled, asked me about the sign, and I said "can YOU read the little print on it". He looked and laughed and said, "no, I'll contact the city". He smiled again and said "what do you carry". I told him and he said "cool" and walked off. Another time female officer, both headlights were out (it was almost light so I couldn't tell. Turned out to be a switch issue. I was on duty though POV'ing so laid out badge holder, permit and license. She only asked for the license, told me about the headlight, saw that they indeed were "ON" by the switch and said she just wanted to let me no. No mention of a weapon. Both times positive experiences.

Only once for me, during a roadside spot check, on my way home from my employer mandated unarmed victim zone (I really hope NC HB 63 passes soon). I told him I had a permit but was not carrying, as per NC state law, and he said "Why not? You should be!"
Thanks for dropping by Brigid!

^^^ Encouraging comments above...

As for the onerous, oh-so-burdensome requirement that you should, OH MY GOD, prove who you are before you vote, it's "...just racism, straight up..." (I borrowed that quote from Janeane Garofalo, but almost any proggie vote-stealer would be happy to spout it, as well.)

Seriously, who do the Dimbulbocrats think they're fooling? We know why they're against the concept of proving who you are before you vote. We know EXACTLY why!
