The court, in a 7-2 ruling written by Thomas, decided this week that it is unconstitutional to ask voters to prove that they are American citizens. Instead of evidence of citizenship in the form of identification papers, voters can sign a form where they check the box saying “I am a US citizen” before they vote.
“How undemocratic that would be to deny someone the vote just because they happen to be foreigners,” Clarence Thomas said in a comment. “It should be enough that a person is physically present in the United States, even if only temporarily, yes even if he has just dropped by for the day, to vote and take part in our great democracy,” Thomas said.
In Canada, a new organisation called ‘Go South To Vote’ will provide buses to take volunteer Canadians across the border, vote and go home the same day. Conveniently, 90% of the Canadian population lives within 100 miles of the US-Canadian border, the organisation said.“As responsible Canadians we believe that elections in the United States are too important to be left to Americans. We have long known that Canadians are better at running a country, provide public services for all and to get along with everyone else in the world than Americans are, so it will be an improvement if we select your president and congress,” spokesman Edward deClerk from ‘Go South To Vote’ said.
“As for who is American and not, we believe that if we feel like we are Americans on election day, we are Americans’, deClerk said.
“There is also the fact that 112 million Mexicans have been voting in US elections for years already. We believe that we from up north should take part too, to provide balance,” deClerk said.
In Ottawa, Clarence Thomas promised he would pass on to the relevant authorities a demand from Quebec that US voting instructions be written in French.
