Thomas Jefferson said, “Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted into tyranny.”
America’s current judicial system is certainly a case in point. Leftists have, within a few decades, succeeded in expanding their power and co-opting the courts as a means for advancing their un-American and radical agendas. Over and again, federal judges have neutered state legislatures, showing disdain for the will of the people. Indeed, judicial tyranny is alive and well.
In what is likely to prove to be one of the most significant election cycles for the state of North Carolina and the American Republic, North Carolinians are being denied common-sense safeguards for protecting the integrity of their elections. Despite a constitutional amendment requiring voters to show a photo ID at the polls, U.S. District Judge Loretta Biggs, an Obama appointee, released a written order December 31, striking down the new law that the state’s electorate approved by a 10 point margin in 2018. State officials are now ordered not to enforce it.
The North Carolina NAACP had sued over the law, claiming it was a form of voter suppression. Biggs agreed and went further, alleging the photo ID requirement was reflective of North Carolina’s “sordid history of racial discrimination.”
According to a statement released from NC House Speaker Tim Moore’s office, it’s tough to comprehend how a Voter Photo ID requirement is racially motivated when there is no evidence the legislature requested or used any racial data to craft the law, and the availability of free IDs from the Department of Motor Vehicles and county boards of elections reduce any significant burdens that would result from disparate rates of ID possession.
Moreover, North Carolina’s voter ID law, which is one of the most lenient among 34 other states that have Voter ID laws, further accommodates religious objectors, victims of natural disasters, accepts drivers’ licenses, passports, military and veteran IDs, student IDs, voter ID cards, as well as state and local government IDs. Even expired drivers’ licenses and licenses from other states qualify in some circumstances.
Perhaps something from Daniel E. Horowitz’s excellent book, Stolen Sovereignty, can provide insight into Judge Bigg’s thinking. Horowitz suggests the thinking of judicial tyrants often goes something like this:
