How do I know this means “Rigged Elections” before even reading the article?

1. Disallowed gate keepers
1.1 No black thugs will be allowed to block door ways and intimidate voters. The penalty for the infraction is death

2. Voter Fraud
2.1 Those found guilty of any of the various noted types of voter fraud shall suffer death within 90 days of the trial.

The liberals don’t do anything like this unless it increases their ability to rig the ballot box. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to buy some swamp land in Florida. The last election was stolen.

Voting and owning a firearm are both Constitutional rights.

Voting is candidly more dangerous than owning a gun. Certainly more have died by by political decisions than crazies with firearms.

Only logical to require the same waiting periods and background checks.

The panel will have a staff, including an executive director, and the General Services Administration will provide administrative services, equipment and other support. A White House official had no other information to provide about who will serve on the commission or its staff.

So how much will all their salaries be? And I guess they will all have lifetime pensions?

It’s called “cheating”.

The first thing any good socialist does after being elected is make sure they can never be unelected.

We’re REALLY in trouble now. “Elections” have been a joke for quite some time. Once this bunch of clowns get through “reforming” them, they’ll be nothing but a huge waste of time and money and an insult to our Founding Fathers. The ballot box doesn’t work for America anymore. It’s time to move on. We’re an official banana republic now. Just going through the motions doesn’t fool any of the remaining Americans who still reside in this country.

OTOH: The best way to “shorten lines” is to pass a law that would make it illegal for DemocRATS to vote more than once.

Or to have the Democrat precinct workers go ahead and vote all the ballots for the voters.

Saves time. Saves trouble. And it's been proven to work in many urban precincts.

Reminds me of the "God" machine in THX 1138. It keeps giving the same replies, no matter what the human says. Last lines of the scene:
Human: (something like) I'm going to die.
Machine: Could you be more specific?

Which, strangely, is what a certain contemporary Christian site does. They say they want to hear from you, but then you get a totally inappropriate, mass-produced reply. Like when you write to your congresscritter.

Point being, life does not imitate art, it imitates science fiction.

Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Britain, India, and South Africa all require photo ID in order to vote – but U.S. liberals don’t consider those countries’ requirements to be racist.

http://www.jewishworldreview.com/cols/fund071006.asp

Illinois recently passed a law which requires buyers of drain cleaner to show photo ID – but liberals don’t accuse this requirement of being racist.

Michelle Obama requires photo ID in order to attend her book signings – but liberals don’t accuse her of being racist.

Barack Obama requires photo ID in order to attend his campaign events – but liberals don’t accuse him of being racist.

This is smoke and mirrors. Some of his homeboys from Chicago needed a job so he manufactured a ‘commitee’ for them to do redundant ‘research’. Pay them $60-$70K. Give them a pension. Wink, nod, pat on the back, thanks bro.

Oh, dear God. I have such a headache. Wisconsin has a crucial Supreme Court and State School Superintendent vote coming up on Tuesday, April 2nd. And Madison’s Dane County has added a referendum to their ballots.

COUNTY
Should the state of Wisconsin continue to
allow people to register to vote at the polls
on Election Day?

Of course, all of the bleeding heart liberals in town will vote yes, we don’t want to disenfranchise people (like Rojee)

“I’m thinking either an RFID under the skin or registering every American to vote by mandate?”

Mexico actually has a law that requires everyone to vote. It is widely ignored.

The problem with voting is only a small segment of the population actually cares enough to spend more than a moments thought on voting. They don’t know what their doing and frankly they don’t want to know.

That is fine with me because I know in my heart it is not only unacceptable to force them to do something they don’t want to do. Its likely to prove disastrous because they will do it carelessly.

You either want to vote enough to go register yourself & pay attention or you don’t really want to vote.

Most people don’t want to vote, and that is their right.

Have everyone vote from home as many times as they want, from wherever they are. That will make lines shorter, and be a more candid way of saying what they’re really after.

I think Rojee is probably a ruse, but if you read through the comments, you can see how the libs got caught up in it, falling all over themselves congratulating him.

Benicia, Calif. is in the eBay area. Nuff said.

Photo ID is very popular in NC, and is almost certainly going to happen. In our solution, we are going to offer a free picture ID. Under normal circumstances, the libs would be all over this since it is something free from the government. The fact that they are fighting it tooth and nail is proof enough to me that there is hanky-panky going on.

““Mexico actually has a law that requires everyone to vote. It is widely ignored.”

I wouldn’t say that, Many of Mexico’s laws have historically been destructive to economic & religious freedom and I agree should have been ignored and resisted.

The people of Mexico city that rule mexico seem to have long had an ideology that tends toward imperialism and even at times socialism.

Texas and much of the rest of Northern Mexico rebelled against this evil almost 200 years ago. It is an unfortunate product of geography and connections that allowed Texas alone to be successful in escaping central mexico’s tyranny.

I will not begrudge our bothers in Northern Mexico’s long held resistance against such usurpation.
