last week, Obama leaked his dream for mandatory voting in the U.S.
"Other countries have mandatory voting... It would be transformative if everybody voted."
OBAMA: 99.97% turnout? I can beat that! The ignorant and uniformed voters put me into office not once, but TWICE! and that was AFTER voter participation declined to 57% in the 2012 presidential election.
With the millions and millions of folks over the age of 112 with social security numbers, there is no reason why those participation numbers couldn't be pushed up to, say 125 or 130% - And thats even after continuing my practice of not counting the votes from those serving in the military overseas.
North Korea's villages and cities surround a central plaza. There are no Starbucks or Burger King ads and billboards visible, Just the impoverished masses walking the streets lined with giant mosaics of the country's founder, Kim Il Sung, and his son, Kim Jong Il. Bright slogans on posters, murals and banners lift the spirits and fill the citizens with hope. See the wide smiles on their faces?
Nevermind the smiles never seem to reach their terrified or vacant eyes. "Yes we can"!
HOPE & CHANGE
But what to do about those pesky mid-term elections when a majority of the ignorant obamafone masses stay home?
Obama’s Mandatory Voters
Uninformed voters put him in office, and their non-participation in the 2010 and 2014 elections caused Democrats to lose more seats in the House of Representatives during the Obama midterms than suffered by any president since Harry Truman.
That’s why a desperate Obama said, following his second straight midterm shellacking, “To everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too.” Funny, I didn’t hear those two-thirds. What exactly did they say to him beyond “I’m just not that into you anymore”?
Obama's "Bullhorn moment"... "I hear you non-voters!"
FLASHBACK ALERT! Lets juxtapose Obama's "Bullhorn moment" with the original from President Bush.
The original picture - Standing on a pile of rubble that once was the World Trade Center, President Bush addresses the rescue workers...
President Bush: Thank you all. I want you all to know -- it [bullhorn] can't go any louder -- I want you all to know that American today, American today is on bended knee, in prayer for the people whose lives were lost here, for the workers who work here, for the families who mourn. The nation stands with the good people of New York City and New Jersey and Connecticut as we mourn the loss of thousands of our citizens
Rescue Worker: I can't hear you!
President Bush: I can hear you! I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people -- and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!
Rescue Workers: [Chanting] U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!
OBAMA: Enough with that Bush guy... He is to blame for everything that's wrong now, even 6 plus years into my reign. We need to take the money out of politics in much the same way as my policies have sucked prosperity right out of this economy. Aaaaand we do that with mandates!
Me: But mister president, is mandatory voting even necessary any more, what with the Republican party self-destructing by marginalizing their base of conservatives and true Tea Party patriots, and refusing to lift a finger in opposition to your lawlessness?
Take, for example, Glenn Beck, who announced on his radio show last week - coincidentally, on the same day you mentioned mandatory voting - that he was leaving the Republican party for those very reasons.
If Republicans continue the path they're on, more and more freedom-loving patriots will leave the Republican party, many of whom will stop voting entirely, given the lack of choice at the ballot box, and will look for other ways to restore the republic.
OBAMA: Oh, it's not good enough they stop voting Republican. They WILL vote for the Democrat!
"Load that Beck fella onto the next train car!"
This is some scary stuff. My husband used to joke that at the rate the dems were going, they would demand everyone's vote to be democrat, UNLESS you got to the poll station and changed it to republican. I'm beginning to think that's not so far off in Obola's world.ReplyDelete
Probably the best piece you've done.ReplyDelete
I don't blindly vote R, which means I'm critical of it.
We've got to get the party back.
Boehner and McConnell must be deposed before we can oppose Obama.
"OBAMA: Oh, it's not good enough they stop voting Republican. They WILL vote for the Democrat!"ReplyDelete
You are brilliant ;-)
What I don't get is Obama's insistence that if mandatory voting DID happen, it'd bring campaign costs down...less money in campaigns.
WHY? They don't campaign to get people to vote, they campaign to get people to VOTE FOR THEM!
And, of course, that's utter BS, what he says, because the real thing is getting the UNINFORMED to vote....which this probably WOULD do!
As Baysider said somewhere, the dems are the get out the uninformed vote party.ReplyDelete
If they can get the drug hazed idiots in the booth and off their couch they'll have their vote.
cube, tell your husband to quit projecting. I think his phone is bugged! One of my personal favorite posts I did (that nobody ever read) back when I first started blogging was my pseudo Jack Kevorkian interview. It was when Dr Death was flirting with running for congress and my idea had to do with him incorporating his suicide machine with a voting booth. If a voter pulled the lever for his opponent, they received his terminal cocktail via injection. They do a low budget version of this now in North Korea. Didn't mean to scare ya!ReplyDelete
Ed, Thanks for the high praise, but I demand you go back and read my full body of work just to be sure. And I agree with your Boehner and McConnell assessment.
Z, Thanks, you are THE BEST, and my personal conservative blog Goddess, and so I blush.
And you hit the nail on the head with the two-headed hammer. It wouldn't take the money out of politics, but add a stimulus-sized amount every election cycle, and he knows it. Anyone else smell a flip flop on his opposition to voter ids?
