BO Mandatory Voting

Obama calls for mandatory voting in U.S. - Washington Times:

Here we see a solid piece of left leaning thought. First, if an idea is viewed as "good" from the left it MUST be MANDATORY at least eventually!

Second, consistency is not an issue. To the "small minded", mandatory voting would mean that there would have to be a voters list and names would be checked off. Such a thing would seem to come dangerously close to voter ID, but we know that Dems HATE ID and regularly call it "voter suppression".
“It would be transformative if everybody voted,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall event in Cleveland. “That would counteract [campaign] money more than anything. If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country.”
We know what BO hates about the political map -- other than major urban areas, it is almost entirely red. BO also makes a not so subtle point in that utterance -- the government isn't a "special interest" in his mind. This is one of the major subterfuges of the left. The government always growing, always spending on groups in efforts to gain their votes and working hand in glove with AFSCME, the largest union is NOT a "special interest". As the government flirts with being 40% of the economy and is already the largest employer, the left wants you to see this behemoth as having "no interests". 

One of the problems with many conservatives is a lack of imagination at least about the political machinations of the left. I'm quite certain that Dems and BO would be quite happy to come up with a system where their voters were herded to the polls, allowed online voting, or maybe "straight party automatic voting" where you indicated your party and your vote automatically counted for that party until you changed it -- like "auto pay" for voting or other "innovation". 

No doubt, random people showing up at the polls, or "over votes" where over 100% of the voters vote (a condition that happens in a few heavily D areas every presidential election now) would be fine -- how could such a thing be "biased", right?

When Democrats have "a good idea", it must be mandatory, subsidized, etc -- if there is something they don't like it must be illegal, fined, taxed, etc. They believe in CONTROL!

  1. I enjoy your blog, now that I've had a chance to read it more,

    I dislike fundamentalism, and though it may raise eyebrows the left has its own brand. The right on social and (sadly) science, which is cherry picked. However the left has their own ivory tower fundamentalism in the form of a paternalistic need to save us from ourselves through politics, which is their version of a pulpit from which comes fire and brimstone.

    RUSH's lyrics in Witch Hunt cuts both ways in secular humanism & religion, in right versus left. What's forgotten isn't the mushy middle but truly well thought out policy, and a just application of God's love. To recognize love is love. To recognize higher taxes doesn't solve deep issues.

    These lyrics might (and are) thought to be aimed at the right, but I think the fundamentalism of the left is equally in these concepts sights

    Witch Hunt
    Lyrics by Neil Peart

    The night is black, without a moon
    The air is thick and still
    The vigilantes gather on
    The lonely torchlit hill

    Features distorted in the flickering light
    Faces are twisted and grotesque
    Silent and stern in the sweltering night
    The mob moves like demons possessed
    Quiet in conscience, calm in their right
    Confident their ways are best

    The righteous rise
    With burning eyes
    Of hatred and ill-will
    Madmen fed on fear and lies
    To beat and burn and kill

    They say there are strangers who threaten us
    Our immigrants and infidels
    They say there is strangeness to danger us
    In our theaters and bookstore shelves
    That those who know what's best for us
    Must rise and save us from ourselves

    Quick to judge
    Quick to anger
    Slow to understand
    Ignorance and prejudice
    And fear walk hand in hand
