Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has continued his push for his intended voting requirements, including a "proof of citizenship" document and a two-tiered voting system.

In an op-ed published on the website of KSAL this week, Kobach charges that the plan is necessary because of "rampant voter fraud"

Kobach also disputed an editorial that contends that he has found "only a handful of voter fraud cases," saying that in fact he presented 221 fraud cases to the state legislature in 2011.

What Kobach neglected to mention was that those 221 fraud cases were found over a period of thirteen years, averaging 17 cases a year.

This is Kobach's continued justification for having suspended the voting rights of at least 12,000 people. Which, contrary to Kobach's insistence, is indeed a "major problem."

Of course, another teabagger was fired for admitting, on air, these laws target democrat voters.

Don Yelton, a Republican precinct chairman in North Carolina, resigned Thursday after making racially charged remarks on the Comedy Central show while defending his state's voter ID law.

In his Daily Show interview, which aired Wednesday, Yelton slammed "lazy black people that wants the government to give them everything." He went on to admit he'd been accused of being a bigot before, but awkwardly added that one of his best friends was black.

Yelton also said the voter ID law was not meant to hurt African Americans, but rather would wreak havoc on the Democratic party because it would disproportionately affect Democratic voters.

Compared to the Yeltons on the extreme right, the extreme left are moderates. Where do they dredge up these empty-headed cretins and put them on the ballot? Even Huey Long would be embarrassed.

It's pretty clear that whenever it is brought up in the political debate it is almost always as a code word for the southern voters on the belief of state's rights and the perceived belief that southern states had the right to rebel, which is completely false.

Then you have the issue with the whole desegregation of the south and how southern voters against felt that it was the federal government violating state's rights be forcing the desegregation of the south.

It has always been a code word for the southern voter that they had the right to rebel and keep slaves, that they had a right to jim crow laws and they had a right to have state laws that segregate and hate against blacks.

After all it is state's rights....right?

That's something that always gets me, the duplication
of government in a lot of states.

Take the two-bit, backwards state of Mississippi; it has 82
counties, each with its own government.

Texas has 254. Granted, Texas is a big state, but I'll
bet one can drive across most of these counties
in 20 minutes. 254 governments. Jeez.
