Justices strike down citizenship provision in Arizona voter law

The Supreme Court on Monday tossed out a provision in Arizona's voter registration law that required proof of citizenship.

The 7-2 majority said the state's voter-approved Proposition 200 interfered with federal law designed to make voter registration easier.

The state called it a "sensible precaution" to prevent voter fraud. Civil rights group countered that it added an unconstitutional and burdensome layer of paperwork for tens of thousands of citizens.

I think the latter Mr Smith, you know there is something funny going on when in all 50 states it is against the law to go out in public without a state issued ID, you can be arrested and held for 72 hours for not carrying ID with you in public. So just why is it unconstitutional and burdensome for tens of thousands of citizens? The way I see it is if they don't have an ID then there probably not a citizen and need to be deported in the first place. Illegals are illegal any way you look at it.

So no papers?

Illegals (undocumented Democrats) vote?

Dead people vote?

Others vote multiple times?

All the while the IRS suppresses conservative groups from getting their message out to voters and God knows if the NSA gives data to the IRS and DOJ and others to spy on Republican, Tea Party, Libertarian members all for 'national security' reasons.

Is this a free country anymore or just a banana republic?
