Not disenfranchised

The ardent zeal of the pitiful mind set constantly at fever pitch to maintain the imbecilic quest to paint Americans as racists pushes the boundary of sanity versus psychosis.

The targeted Americans, of course, are those rotten Republicans. All of them.

To elaborate, that cast would be anyone viewed as a conservative and anyone seen believing in the laws of the land and the Constitution — versus those who believe that only they are worthy of steering the country.

A recent Signal letter to the editor entitled “Republicans disenfranchise voters by tactics” (Nov. 21) proceeded with the usual propaganda that “the poor and minorities” would not be able to vote in elections.

Texas was specifically mentioned, but there are at least 11 states who have passed voter ID laws between 2011 and 2013, including Alabama, Kansas, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Disenfranchised? Not so.

The Texas voter turnout in 2013 was 1,099,670 versus 672,874 in 2011. Hidalgo County, 90 percent Hispanic, had a 2011 turnout of 4,000 in 2011 and 16,000 in 2013.

I’d match the number of Americans who have successfully applied for and gotten voter ID cards to the disenfranchised Americans beating their heads against the wall trying to get Obamacare.

The latter is certainly a minority.
