You don't have to be an "activist" to appreciate the way Texas hucksters have co-opted the vote through Republican Voodoo Politics. Voter Suppression is real, and real stupid. It is like throwing the State back to 1865, Civil War mentality.
John Franks is my buddy on faceBook and is a Veteran. He was told he cannot vote with his VA ID. Maybe he should show them his battle wounds and his birth certificate tattooed on his ass, eh?
Texas Effort To Suppress Veterans Voting Rights (VIDEO) |: "John Franks is a veteran who lives in Texas. He tried to vote with his VA government ID card and was told time and again by a judge that he was not permitted to vote because he didn’t have proper identification. Eventually, after threatening a lawsuit, he was finally allowed to vote but as he said in an exclusive statement to Liberals Unite, he fears other vets might be too intimidated and leave if a judge tells them they can’t vote."

"...The election judge may have been confused because Rick Perry and his Party deliberately make the legal language surrounding voting as vague and confusing as possible.
When my Battleground Texas group registered voters at a retirement facility in S.W. Houston last month several veterans asked if their VA ID would be acceptable. Our organizer had to check with the main office. The VA ID card is acceptable.
But it is not always included in Rick Perry's "what you need to vote" literature.
This veteran is not the only one who could not vote in Texas.
Earlier this week Meteor Blades reported another case. (Shaw, Libby. 11/01/2014)..."
