Atlanta - “The decision by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to deny preclearance of Georgia’s already implemented citizenship verification process shows a shocking disregard for the integrity of our elections. With this decision, DOJ has now barred Georgia from continuing the citizenship verification program that DOJ lawyers helped to craft. DOJ’s decision also nullifies the orders of two federal courts directing Georgia to implement the procedure for the 2008 general election. The decision comes seven months after Georgia requested an expedited review of the preclearance submission.
“DOJ has thrown open the door for activist organizations such as ACORN to register non-citizens to vote in Georgia’s elections, and the state has no ability to verify an applicant’s citizenship status or whether the individual even exists. DOJ completely disregarded Georgia’s obvious and direct interest in preventing non-citizens from voting, instead siding with the ACLU and MALDEF. Clearly, politics took priority over common sense and good public policy.
“This process is critical to protecting the integrity of our elections. We have evidence that non-citizens have voted in past Georgia elections and that more than 2,100 individuals have attempted to register, yet still have questions regarding their citizenship. Further, the Inspector General’s office is investigating more than 30 cases of non-citizens casting ballots in Georgia elections, including the case of a Henry County non-citizen who registered to vote and cast ballots in 2004 and 2006.
“It is important to underscore that not a single person has come forward to say he or she could not vote because of the verification process. Further, while DOJ argues that the process is somehow discriminatory, the historic voter turnout among Hispanic and African-American voters in the 2008 general elections clearly says otherwise.
“This decision provides a specific example of the inherently illogical and unfair nature of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. It is a sad day for the rights of our state and for the integrity of our elections. I remain committed to continuing the fight for citizenship verification. In the coming days, I will consider every option available to the state, including the possibility of legal action.”

Obama Justice Department Decision Will Allow Non-Citizens to Register to Vote in Georgia
Ladies and Gentlemen, let me ask ALL of you, do you know what the REAL cause of the American Civil War was? The War of Northern Aggression and Repression. Let's have a show of hands, or the like. Was the cause of that war:
1. Economic and social differences between the North and the South.
2. States versus federal rights.
3. The fight between Slave and Non-Slave State Proponents.
4. Growth of the Abolition Movement.
5. The election of Abraham Lincoln.
6. The preservation of the Union
7. All of the above.
8. None of the above.
This link: Top Five Causes of the Civil War is where I got the top 5, the last 3 are my options. I have NEVER bought into the slavery issue being the cause of the Civil War, there were numerous Northern slave holders prior to emancipation.
The Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic States, including Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, had legally sanctioned slavery in the 17th, 18th and even part of the 19th centuries, but in the generation or two before the American Civil War, almost all slaves had been emancipated through a series of statutes. SOURCE: Northern Slave StatesWe all know that slavery was wrong, we have ALL heard that slavery was THE cause of the Civil War, but it was not. It may have been a contributing factor, but it was NOT the one and only reason for the War Between the States.
STATES RIGHTS folks, that was the primary cause of the conflict. No matter what anyone tells you, States Rights was the primary reason that the Civil War was fought. Today we are seeing the exact same thing, history IS repeating itself. It's been coming for a long time. Now Barack Hussein Obama has rapidly escalated his efforts to infringe upon STATES RIGHTS. He and his minions, at Obama's direction, particularly the DOJ and one Eric Holder, attempt to turn this USA into a socialist, Marxist, communist nation dominated by Sharia law and liberal mentality.
Texas has sent their Sovereignty Resolution from the Texas House to the Texas Senate. HCR 50 We are well on our way to a declaration my friends. The Secessionist Movement is alive and well in Texas, and it's the actions that this story presents, those in Georgia, that makes me honestly believe, ALL states MUST declare their SOVEREIGNTY from the USA and the Obama Nation.
Once sovereignty has been established, let the chips fall where they may, if secession and returning Texas to it's original inception as a REPUBLIC, a free and independent REPUBLIC is the way we must go, then so be it!
This entire nation is on the brink of collapse, some of us will NOT sit idly by and watch our self sufficient states go down with the rest of the nation, not when those states have the power at their fingertips to rectify the travesty known as The Obamessiah...
