The “right” to vote is guaranteed to us by the Constitution. At that time, only white male property owners could cast votes. Getting beyond the histrionics of the “white” and the “male” portions brings us to the logic that those who DIDN’T own property (those who at that time essentially paid no taxes of any kind) had no right to tell those that did how much tax they should be paying. Nor did they have to right to vote into office those who would irresponsibly raise the taxes of others.
This perfectly sound logic has been jettisoned today. The unproductive now have the “right” to vote themselves a “raise” at least every two years, thus perpetually penalizing the productive. This “right” has also morphed with the “right” of what are now laughingly called “benefits”. These “benefits” (welfare, AFDC, etc, etc..) have been transformed into “rights” by the liberal overseers which are now parallel to actual constitutionally conferred “rights”. This is not a “right”, this is a “wrong”.
As far as I am concerned, after watching the nonsense unfolding before me today at the polling place, I feel that a few other “voting wrongs” need to be addressed and corrected.
Certain actions remove your right to vote. (As of today, that is..) For example, convicted felons. The liberals would like to overturn this obviously logical rule therefore allowing hundreds of Clinton administration employees a chance to get back onto the field.. Certain “inaction” should negate your “right” to vote as well..
If you do not work for a living, you do not vote. All over the sample ballot here in Missouri, we were regaled with the “news” that you DO NOT even need a picture ID in order to cast a ballot. What could go wrong with that plan? Just bring in your neighbor’s gas bill and you are all set. I say that you should have to bring in a check stub from your employer. By the way, for those unsure about how to vote while they have that check stub in their hand, take a look at the “deductions” portion of that document and remember that the Democrats are responsible for the SIZE of those embarrassingly large numbers..
As an aside, could we please move Election Day to April 16th? Wouldn’t that help to alter our politician’s perspective as well as focus the voter’s?
Invoking the “Obama Depression Clause” as well would mean that as long as you do not receive ANY governmental sustenance of any kind, you could proceed to the booth. Today an EBT card allows you to vote, tomorrow it should not..
For those victims of the Obama Depression, any check stub from prior to the Communist Coronation will be accepted and any retiree who brings in their gold watch is good to go.. As far as I know, the Obama caliphate hasn’t been giving out gold watches to those who have been on the government dole for thirty years or thirty generations, so there shouldn’t be any problems with the perpetual loafers trying to weasel their way in unless they went to a yard sale before hitting the voting booth..
As well, if you do not speak English you do not vote. Period. If you do not understand English, you will not understand the ballot making your ballot useless. That will in turn cancel the ballot of someone who actually speaks English. Whether or not the English speaker who votes for the liberals truly “understands” what he or she is voting for is another matter altogether.. There were way too many helpful “interpreters” there and who knows exactly what it was that each of these “helpers” were saying.. If I started “helping” someone in the next cubicle how to vote in English, I would be forcibly removed from the premises. These “helpers” are actually INSIDE the booth “helping” the confused “immigrant” to “properly” cast their vote..
The liberals call the insistence for “immigrants” to speak English, “hateful” and “exclusionary”. English is the language of success in AMERICA, which is where you are. Refusing to speak anything other than English immediately makes you unemployable in America, which immediately makes you run to the American liberals and all of their “benefits”. Once manacled to their mantra of individual failure and “woe-is-me-ism”, your career in the lowest economic group is firmly established. Those who free themselves of the ball and chain of liberalism have NO USE for liberalism, thus the liberals constant efforts at reinforcing and making poverty permanent..
Maybe once we “right” the ship we can get about fixing these and other voting wrongs..
