The Coming Battle Over the Ballot Box

The 2012 presidential election heralded two important events that signaled the demise of the Republic:

1. Voter fraud has biased the election results so that the vote of people supporting values and the Constitution are in the minority regardless of the actual demographics.

2. The concept of public virtue is dead: people will vote for “things” instead of Liberty.

There is no optimistic viewpoint for our election process. Whether you agree that there is really only one party working in tandem to secure their power base over the people’s freedom or want to believe that the Republican party will be able to turn around our $130 trillion national debt, at some point reality will overcome fantasy.

With “immigration reform” supported by both parties and no public outcry, there will be no turnaround at the ballot box. And there will be no turnaround for our Liberty using the ballot box.

When President Obama declared victory last November, you might have missed the way he spun his voter-turnout triumph into a grievance: “I want to thank every American who participated in this election, whether you voted for the very first time or waited in line for a very long time,” he said on election night, adding: “By the way, we need to fix that.”

He returned to the subject at his inauguration: “Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote.” And in his State of the Union address on Tuesday, the president is expected to call on Congress to enact new voting legislation. Several liberal Democrats have already introduced a bill styled the Voter Empowerment Act of 2013.

The effort is a cynical partisan undertaking, according to election lawyer Hans von Spakovsky. In December, some “three dozen of the most powerful liberal advocacy groups, including union organizations,” held a strategy session, he says, citing a report from the liberal magazine Mother Jones. They agreed to “oppose all voter integrity efforts, things like voter ID,” to push for federal legislation requiring states to permit voter registration on Election Day, and to institute “automatic” voter registration.
