What the Dems know that we don't: Universal Voter Registration
Many are puzzled that Democrats persist in ramming unpopular and destructive legislation down our collective throats while seemingly unconcerned by their plummeting poll numbers. A widespread belief is that the Democrats are committing political suicide and will be swept from one or both houses of Congress with unprecedented electoral losses next November. But since Democrat politicians rarely do things that will not ultimately benefit themselves, this column asked two weeks ago:
"what do they know that we don't?"
We may have found out. It's called universal voter registration. The Wall Street Journal's John Fund described the Democrat plan recently at a David Horowitz Freedom Center forum. Watch the video:
Fund describes the proposal as follows:
In January, Chuck Schumer and Barney Frank will propose universal voter registration.
What is universal voter registration? It means all of the state laws on elections will be overriden by a federal mandate. The feds will tell the states: 'take everyone on every list of welfare that you have, take everyone on every list of unemployed you have, take everyone on every list of property owners, take everyone on every list of driver's license holders and register them to vote regardless of whether they want to be...'
Fund anticipates that Congress will attempt to ram this legislation down our throats like they have been with the "healthcare" bill. What a surprise! Fund covers the vote issue at greater length in his book, How the Obama Administration Threatens to Undermine Our Elections, a very good read.
Leftist groups are already arguing that universal voter registration will solve all the problems with our voting system. But the left created most of these problems. The radical leftist Nation magazine, for example, absolutely loves the idea of universal voter registration. This is the same magazine, however, that advanced Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven's Manufactured Crisis strategy.
The Cloward/Piven strategy was designed to undermine government institutions by overwhelming them with impossible demands for services. Cloward and Piven focused on welfare, housing and voting as the main targets of this strategy, and the radical group ACORN was specifically created for the purpose of executing it.
The Nation article enthusiastically lists Cloward/Piven-inspired organizations like Project Vote, the ACORN group where President Obama cut his teeth. It also discusses the left's efforts to push enforcement of the Motor Voter law, and explains how universal voter registration could assist in these efforts.
Cloward and Piven were the ones who crafted Motor Voter legislation in the early 1980s and pushed for it's enactment until 1993, when President Clinton signed it into law. Cloward and Piven considered Motor Voter to be their crowning lifetime achievement.
The left has predictably launched vicious smear attacks against John Fund for bringing universal voter registration to our attention. A Google search of the issue brings up any number of nasty ad hominem attacks. Most notable is Media Matters, the leftist group whose sole purpose seems to be smearing Republicans and defending the left's indefensible policies.
They put up this gem: "Right-Wing Ass Weasel John Fund Doesn't Like Universal Voter Registration because of ACORN." Media Matters, what a class act!
The problems with universal voter registration are numerous and obvious.
Many state lists include vast numbers of illegals, including some states which allow illegals to obtain driver's licenses;
because many homeowners have more than one home there will be duplicates;
because so many people are on so many separate federal and state government agency lists, there will be duplicates, and because so many lists exist with little or no cross-checking capability these duplicates are likely to go uncorrected.
Add to this the fact that Dems hope to extend voting rights to felons and the whole thing begins to look like a nationwide Democrat voter registration drive facilitated by taxpayers.

Their plan started a long time ago when they took over the slums of the cities and made them permanent democrats by promising them everything for nothing. Then they made it easier for these low-lives to vote with motor-voter, easing rules on absentee voting and bussing them to the polls with instructions and bribes on who to vote for.

They make them utterly dependent on them and that way they can scare them into voting for them - because those mean conservatives will take away what little they have.
Of course we want them to prosper and become independent, but the liberals are like drug pushers. The victims actually think the libs are their friends - cause they are the source of their "fix" . They have no idea they are nothing more than pawns being used for their votes.
The liberals give them just enough to keep them from trying to improve their stance, that way they stay dependent. It breeds a culture of entitlement and ignorance - like we have today. Everyone OWES them - Obama's "stash" is on the way!!!. They won't have to pay their mortgage, rent or for gas yet it is always just around the corner.
It is evil to enslave people like they do.

I liked the "Motor Voter" law-it makes it easier for people who want to register to vote to do so.
I don't like the idea of registering voters without the potential voter being the party who initiates the process, and instead is registered without his or her knowledge. In states like mine, where we have to register as a democrat, republican, independent, etc., who decides which group those who are being registered without their knowledge and consent are going to be registered as being in? The Secretary of State's office? The individual county clerks? None of those people are elected in a "non partisan" contest.

Past voter registration has been simplicity itself without turning it into a fast food drive through like system.
Their latest scam is to enroll ever critter who happens to be in America at the time to vote.If they have their way even Europeans tourists here on vacation or to shop would be able to influence the American elections.They would organize 'Get out the vote' tours in Europe and flood the American polling places with votes for the Socialist candidate of their choice.
The various secretary of state offices have turned into a virtual Liberal/Progressive enclosure.From there they control the entire state wide voting process from whom may vote to who counts the ballots.
They allow myriad absentee ballots without any proof of need.Some states refuse to allow military ballots from our serving troops to be counted or conveniently delay their inclusion until after the election is over.
Of The Republician party's many sins the greatest has been to allow the party of evil to control the states election processes so completely .They have ignored these contests in the past as much to low a level to be of any national concern that is until the advent of the criminal enterprise ACORN.
Even now the obvious and proven ballot fraud by ACORN members is being ignored by OBummers hand picked Attorney Generals office along with wide spread voter intimidation by Revolutionary Black Panthers.The Far left Maoist Congress insists on funding ACORN even while proven to have committed fraudulent transfer of public funds to the SEIU .
If the KKK were to show up at the polling places the outcry would be deafening from the evil left but the Black Panthers with their batons are given free reign,why is that ?
The Republician party is in shambles with more liberal wannabees than real conservatives.The party has been suborned and corrupted at its roots and needs to die as it is untrustworthy to real Conservative Americans .

It should NOT be easy to register to vote - and you should have to show ID when you vote.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
