Mandated multi-language ballots

in Voting Rights Act is a sham!

There's a nasty little provision called Section 7 in the Voting Rights Act which mandates ballots in multi-languages.

"If we want to demolish modern-day obstacles and bring all backgrounds into our voting process to communicate with each other, we must unify the country instead of driving a wedge between cultures," said Republican Steve King, one of the representatives most hostile to immigration. "Should we deny citizens the ability to understand the ballot?" asked Senator James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) don't unify a country by offering ballots and other government services in multi-languages. The way to unify a country is to encourage all of its citizens to speak one common language.

Gee, what a concept. I figured that one out and I'm not even a politician!
