DISENFRANCHISED BY NUMBERS
Original Content | 6/29/2013 | by Laz A. Mataz

Posted on 06/29/2013 7:34:19 AM PDT by Lazamataz

The dictionary definition of 'disenfrachisment' is:

  1. to deprive of right, especially voting
  2. to deprive a person or organization of a privilege, immunity, or legal right, especially the right to vote.

In that definition of disenfranchisment, there is a discussion of the outright removal of a person's right to vote. There is also a different form of disenfranchisment: Dilution of the vote.

This 'disenfranchisment by dillution' can occur in many ways. A political party can commit voter fraud, or it can suppress organizational efforts of opposing parties, or -- as is being attempted now, with the Illegal Immigrant Amnesty Bill -- the voter base can be diluted with foreign nationals that share the views of that party. The opposing party finds itself in a permanent minority status, as their votes become so watered down as to become meaningless. It would get to the point that it would be political homeopathy.

There is some discussion that the Elite Ruling-class Republicans don't care if they are a permanent minority; that they would in fact prefer it. Those who vote in the Ruling Elite's desires would get personal rewards -- crumbs, thrown from the table, as the Democrats feasted on the corpse of America. It is past time for those who would consider such a vote to put the nation over their own personal benefit. They need to think of the Founding Fathers who risked life and personal fortunes to establish a nation, under God, that embraced personal freedom.

The Democrats do not value personal freedom, at all, unless it is to kill the unborn. On every other topic, they favor a rigid, overbearing, controlling government presence. When it comes to firearms possession, the ability to conduct business unmolested by a rapacious government, or even how one lives their life (with their constant 'environmental' attempts to prevent us from using energy or having access to technology, or to own one owns property or money, the Democrats consistently favor the Communist and Socialist approach.

Those who would gain from Illegal Alien Amnesty tend to come from countries, such as Mexico, where the government is heavy and oppressive -- and largely socialistic. To turn the nation over to these foreign invaders, in the form of legalizing millions of illegal interlopers, is an utterly heinous and traitorous act. It disenfranchises current Americans.

We need to fight this disenfranchisement with every fiber in our being. We need to appeal to the fence-sitters, reminding them that current Americans would be disenfranchised. To entertain ANY border-related bill right now, even one that looks wonderful from our perspective, would invite the worst elements of the Senate bill to be included.

And that, my friends, would be the final coup-de-grace that would kill America once and for all.

political homeopathy

Technically homeopathy is when you take a little poison to get stronger. In this case we're talking about political Obamacare.

American’s civil rights franchisement contract ( heretofore know as the Constitution) is being systematically shredded by the self appointed ruling political elite. America is being plundered by both political stripes to attain the same ends- power and treasure, Americans be damned.

The underlying problem is that the current electorate has swallowed (hook, line and sinker) the notion that the United States was intended to be an egalitarian democracy.

Those of us who know history well enough to see through this lie are by the current definition, the extreme right wing. This somehow has become synonymous with “wrong.”

The whole of the nation needs a civics lesson. Unfortunately they seem to be opting for “field training” rather than a classroom setting in this matter.

First lesson - “The Well Regulated Militia.”

Well said, Laz.

I’ve come to the sad conclusion that the democrats have successfully planted enough of their loyalists in the GOP as to render it useless. McStain, Gramnesty and Rubio are just as determined to destroy our nation as Obozo, Reid and Pelosi.

It’s time to separate the traitors from the patriots. The tree of liberty needs refreshing.

Exactly. We don't have a "broken" immigration system...we have laws that are not being enforced.

If I remember right, back in the early days there was a Freeper who composed semi-bloggy pingy stuff like your are doing now, then mostly in the clintoon era. The kind of rallying stuff to make you say hmmmmmmmmm!!!!! and grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!.

I lurked 'most of '98-'00 time frame, so didn't get to particpate, but sure made a point to read. Someone here is bound to remember

I stand corrected. It looks like this ping list only goes back to '02, and focused on mostly military matters. Author was a FReeper named snippy about it.

I must be thinking about another ping list. Still, Yours is pretty much of an orignial. I hit it like I would hit Jess Simpson.

You are absolutely right.

I read FoxNews.com to my husband every morning while he eats his breakfast.

Many times I have been laughing too hard to read it aloud at the puerile and incorrect spelling, word, and grammar usage.

Seriously, I don’t think that they “edit” it at all. At least not our understanding of the word “edit.”

And don’t get me started about the headlines...
