A Poll That Hasn't Been Taken,But Should; The Military Vote. Will Libs Stop Overseas Ballets?

Posted on 04/25/2012 4:37:47 PM PDT by Reality_News

The polls are pretty meaningless for now, but will be in Romneys Favor once he picks a VP. What hasn't been brought up yet in the media is the military vote. How many ballets will be coming back? How many will vote to show Obama the door? Can you imagine how the "Rats" will react when they find out that Romney is the choice of our heroes? Will Schumer and Biden stall the mailings of the ballots? Wasn't there a delay in the mailing of oversea ballots last time around?

Not if Rahm Emanuel has anything to do with it.

With the repeal of DADT we know for sure that SOME in our military will have no problems voting—many times.

How many ballets will be coming back?

In 2006, military ballots were held up at the Joint Military Mail Terminal on Victory Base until they were no longer valid. The reason given was to make space for higher priority mail.

That is a real concern.

Wonder what can be done to protect their votes?

all we can pray for is a poll saying that 70% of all military (including “Navy Corpse-Men) are voting for Romney.

I never really trusted President Bush.

I wonder if all residents in Wisconsin with the name “Adolf Hitler” will be counting the military votes.

One of the views of far lefties, especially in Minnestoopid, is that anyone with any military background should not be allowed to participate in the political process. This was expressed during one of Congressman John Kline’s campaign by the organization of his opponent. His opponent’s campagn edited a photo of Kline in his Marine dress blues so that it was a Nazi SS uniform. (John Kline is a conservative Republican). Of course John Murtha(censored) gets a pass from the lefties.
So dumping the ballots of the military personnel is in keeping with the views of the Left.

It wasn’t Bush’s doing. It was the military’s. They made the decision to hold up ballots.

And just what are the Republicans in Congress going to do to ensure the military votes are counted? They know about this issue, yet do nothing to pass a law to ensure our military votes are counted and not held up or delayed.

Guess they have more important things to pass like extending student loans for a year.

If it happens during the next election, will you blame the military, or Obama?

Military personnel and their dependents—particularly those assigned overseas—are the most disenfranchised voters in America. By some estimates, at least one-third of military absentee ballots go uncounted during each presidential elections.

And the blame for this can be laid squarely at the feet of the Democratic Party and the Pentagon. In 2008, most of the states requesting waivers from laws designed to protect military voters were controlled by the Rats. And, the cities/counties where there were problems with ballots being shipped out late were controlled by...guess who.

As for the folks at the Pentagon, they run for the tall grass every time the subject of military voting comes up. Yeah, they talk a good game, but they never press Congress and the White House on actually enforcing the laws. In fact, the officer in charge of DoD’s voting program is typically a Lieutenant Colonel, so he (or she) has absolutely no horsepower or clout—and that’s by design.

With this year’s presidential election likely to be tight, more military ballots will be lost, sent out late, or rejected than ever before. And you won’t hear a peep out of DoD, Congress or the White House.

In fact, here’s a challlenge for the GOP, should they win retain control of the House and take the Senate. AS their first piece of legislation in 2013, they should past a much tougher military voter protection act, to ensure that ballots are sent out on time, returned and actually counted. The bill should also mandate that DoD develop an on-line voting system (in conjunction with the states), similar to the one already in use in Arizona.

The disenfranchisement of military voters should never be allowed—and can be easily fixed.

You’re barking up the wrong tree there. I was working at the JMMT at that time. It was a decision made by the officer in charge of the mail terminal.
