Destroying the Left's Voter ID myths Part II

As promised here are the numbers for Indiana. As stated in the previous post only GA and IN had voter ID laws in the 2008 election year so I am using the numbers from 2004 and 2008 to prove that requiring ID in order to participate in elections DOES NOT suppress turnout, nor does it disenfranchise voters.

So here are the numbers. Unfortunately I can't find the numbers on the IN SOS site like I was able to for GA that broke them down by race and age, so these are the total numbers based on Race alone in IN. The only place that I was able to find this information was the William C. Velasquez Institute webpage. This is the link for the IN breakdown.

2004        Reg            Reg %        Turn out        TO %
Blacks - 229,000       62.2%         198,000       86.5%

Latino -  57,000         48.3%         41,000         71.9%

Blacks - 228,000       63.3%         219,000       96.1%

Latino - 45,000          44.1%          36,000        80%

So as you can see yes, there were fewer latinos registered to vote in 2008, however a higher percentage of the registered ones showed up to vote. While the black population lost a thousand registered voters 21,000 new voters showed up during the 2008 election. Since minorities and old people were suppose to be the most affected by this why did more of them show up? And why have more of them registered?

Destroying the Left's Voter ID myths

So I read and posted about the articles talking about how Mickey Mouse and Adolf Hitler's signatures would be accepted on the Scott Walker recall petition unless they were individually challenged. We can get into the idea of common sense and personal responsibility, but something tells me that it would be a foolish fight. You can't argue with leftist any more than you can argue with the brick wall in front of me. That being said this is one that I just couldn't resist. Usually I just give everyone the gist of whats going on and a quick breakdown of my feelings/ideas. Well today I actually went and did research. What I found is enough to make every liberal squirm and scream bloody murder. I'm actually looking forward to it.

Proof that Scott Walker is doing a good job.

In Wisconsin Scott Walker has endeared himself to conservatives, fought against Unions, saved a failing government budget and made multiple school districts solvent for the first time in who knows how long. But not every is excited about the changes that he has made to the gov.

Ron Paul in Iowa

I'm not really going to delve into the concept of "could" Ron Paul win Iowa. Frankly it's a caucus and no one is better organized or has more of a rabid fan base. But my real question comes from the intrigue that Hot Air threw into my mind when I was reading this post.

House Introduces No Confidence Bill for Eric Holder

Rep Paul Gosar (AZ-R) filed H. Res 490 which is a bill to force a vote of No Confidence in Attorney General Eric Holder. This should be the first step towards impeaching and removing what could possibly be the worst and least effective Attorney General in the history of this country. That being said, does this mean that they had confidence in him prior to Fast and Furious?
