Universal Voter Registration: Dems’ plan to undermine US elections!

by James Simpson at The Examiner

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.

MN Court Helping Dems Steal Election

(#TCOT)

by Martiga Lohn, ASSOCIATED PRESS

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota’s highest court on Wednesday ruled against Republican Sen. Norm Coleman’s attempt to keep dozens of possible double votes from Democratic-heavy precincts out of the long-running U.S. Senate recount, but left the door open for a lawsuit.

The state Supreme Court unanimously denied Mr. Coleman’s request for a temporary restraining order to block the votes, which the Coleman campaign contended were duplicates that mostly favored Democratic rival Al Franken. The court upheld the state Canvassing Board’s ruling on the matter.

The court’s decision leaves Mr. Coleman with fewer ways to make up ground in the recount, where he now trails Mr. Franken by 47 votes.

Associate Justice Alan Page made it clear the issue of duplicate ballots was unresolved and said the court’s ruling was not binding in a future lawsuit.

Democrats stealing election in MN?

In an editorial on Foxnews.com, John R. Lott, Jr. and Ryan S. Lott shine light on the suspect results of the Minnesota State Canvassing Board’s power to divine voter intent on disputed ballots in the Coleman vs. Franken Senate race.

Though they do reference the suspicious missing votes that miraculously appeared to narrow Coleman’s election day lead, they focus their attention on more concrete inconsistencies involving individual ballots.

Using photographs of actual ballots, they demonstrate the certain bias of the Board in favor of Franken.  They go even further, linking to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune website where readers can view photos of several hundred contested ballots, vote on how they would interpret the ballot, see the breakdown of how other readers interpreted it, and the actual decision of the canvassing board.

Here’s an example of a ballot the Board decided was inconclusive, the vote wasn’t given to either candidate.

There are several other examples of the clear bias on the Canvassing Board in the Fox article and on the Star-Tribune website linked above.

It appears we’ll fight this battle in every close election from now until forever. If the Democrats are losing, they’ll just keep counting until they “find” enough votes to put them over the top. And there’s no limit to the methods they’ll use to “find” those votes.
