To the Editor,
Gov. Beverly Perdue is out of touch with North Carolinians.
Perdue vetoes and rejects the “super majority” of North Carolinas’ district attorneys’ findings and denies 64 percent of N.C. citizens’ who support the death penalty as required by law.
The Racial Justice Act of year 2009 has made it all but impossible for N.C. courts to enforce death penalty laws. Perdue and many other members of the Democrat Party support the NAACP, which asserts that the Racial Justice Act as well as Voter ID are racial. Not true at all.
Polls show that 69 percent of North Carolinians support Voter ID, a law that requires official identification to vote in elections. Voter ID is required to visit county courthouses, governors’ offices, Capitol Hill office buildings, and the White House. We must show photo ID to drive a car, fly on a plane, cash a check, open a bank account, collect Social Security benefits, receive food stamps, collect welfare, rent a car, check into a hotel room, pick up tickets, and the list goes on.
Voter ID would be provided to those who cannot afford to purchase one.
It would be nice if the Democrats could/would argue facts and get over “racism,”
