Pennsylvania Supreme Court Wipes Out Pro Voter ID Decision but Declines to Block Law

Last month, a Pennsylvania trial judge upheld that state’s Voter ID law, in an opinion that relied at least in part on Nineteenth Century precedent which claimed that vote suppressing laws may be permissible to protect against ‘rogues,’ ‘strumpets,’ and ‘wandering arabs.’ Today, the state supreme court vacated that order, noting that the law is not living up to its own promises of ensuring voters will have access to ID:
he Law contemplates that the primary form of photo identification to be used by voters is a Department of Transportation (PennDOT) driver’s license or the non-driver equivalent provided under Section 1510(b) of the Vehicle Code. Furthermore, the Law specifically requires that – notwithstanding provisions of Section 1510(b) relating to the issuance and content of the cards – PennDOT shall issue them at no cost . . . . As such, the Law establishes a policy of liberal access to Section 1510(b) identification cards.
However, as implementation of the Law has proceeded, PennDOT – apparently for good reason – has refused to allow such liberal access. Instead, the Department continues to vet applicants for Section 1510(b) cards through an identification process that Commonwealth officials appear to acknowledge is a rigorous one. Generally, the process requires the applicant to present a birth certificate with a raised seal (or a document considered to be an equivalent), a social security card, and two forms of documentation showing current residency. The reason why PennDOT will not implement the Law as written is that the Section 1510(b) driver’s license equivalent is a secure form of identification, which may be used, for example, to board commercial aircraft.
The Department of State has realized, and the Commonwealth parties have candidly conceded, that the Law is not being implemented according to its terms. . . . Overall, we are confronted with an ambitious effort on the part of the General Assembly to bring the new identification procedure into effect within a relatively short timeframe and an implementation process which has by no means been seamless in light of the serious operational constraints faced by the executive branch. Given this state of affairs, we are not satisfied with a mere predictive judgment based primarily on the assurances of government officials, even though we have no doubt they are proceeding in good faith.

The Republican War on Everybody Else

The Republicans have been waging a war against liberals for at least the last forty years. They have demonized us, they have shamed us into silence, and they have spewed their hateful rhetoric to avoid discussions about real solutions to very real and pressing problems.

It's true. I am sick of the lack of real political discourse in this country. I am tired of being called a socialist or communist for my political views. I am troubled by the claims that my support for the gay/transgender communities is to go against the will of God. I find disturbing their fears of anyone who isn't white. I am very uncomfortable with their ability to marginalize the poor. I have a real problem with their claims that unfettered capitalism is the altar on which we all should worship. And I am furious because, we as liberals, have let conservatives marginalize us and our core beliefs.

My America is obviously not their America, and in another time or place that would have been okay, but today they want to shape America in their image. It would be an American in which the poor would have no voice, no opportunity to rise above circumstance to succeed. Their America would be a place where gun control would not exist and everyone would be allowed to have assault rifles. Their America would be an America in which women would have no access to family planning and abortion. Their America would be an America with no safe air and water, no safe food, no safe pharmaceutical drugs, or devices. Civil rights and labor laws would become a footnote in a history text and we all would lose the rights we previously took for granted.

They have slowly made us second class citizens because of our views. They resort to name-calling and talking points, because they are unable or unwilling to engage in thoughtful or meaningful discussion on the issues challenging this country. They are mouthpieces to their rich overlords and will say anything to keep their masters happy, and will leave the rest of us swinging in the wind.
