Saddam Hussein Obama, the Emperor and current President of the United States has officially gone off the deep end. No, it’s not a requirement that all inner city kids drop midnight basketball and be forced to learn golf.
He’s supporting the idea of “mandatory voting” for United States citizens in national elections. From David Boyer in the Washington Times tonight:
President Obama, whose party was trounced in last year’s midterm election due to poor turnout among Democrats, endorsed the idea of mandatory voting Wednesday.
“It would be transformative if everybody voted,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall event in Cleveland. “That would counteract [campaign] money more than anything. If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country.”
Mr. Obama raised the subject during a discussion of curbing the influence of campaign donations in U.S. elections. The president said he had never discussed the idea publicly before, but said Australia and some other countries have compulsory voting.
Are you F*#!ing kidding me?!?!?
HIS voting bloc barely can spell the word “Constitution” much less read the document itself and this is the kind of hare-brained Saddam Hussein type of stunt he promotes! To make matters worse, he thinks that this will cure many of our nation’s ills. He has not called for any type of legislation or Executive Order yet to enforce this plan but the article points out the obvious as it continues:
The president didn’t commit to pushing a mandatory voting initiative at the federal level but said, “that may end up being a better strategy in the short term” than finding a solution to curbing campaign donations.
Australia is one of 11 nations worldwide with mandatory voting. Australians who fail to vote can be fined, or even jailed for repeatedly not casting a ballot.
So because Australia is run like a Third World nation we should join that trap also? Hell, Australia has done more to limit their citizen’s rights than any American can imagine yet by floating this idea, I think he is hinting that he would like for this to become a lifetime position for his ego and administration. Because the elections did not go his way, he used the following twisted logic to support this idea as the article states:
The president repeated his frequent complaint that Democrats tend to stay home in midterm elections. Last November, Republicans regained control of the Senate and added seats to their majority in the House despite Mr. Obama’s massive fundraising efforts for his party.
“The people who tend not to vote are young, they’re lower income, they’re skewed more heavily towards immigrant groups and minority groups,” Mr. Obama said. “And they’re the folks who are scratching and climbing to get into the middle class and they’re working hard. There’s a reason why some folks try to keep them away from the polls. We should want to get them into the polls.”
Wow. Saddam Hussein would be proud.
If implemented, Saddam Hussein Obama would be even more thrilled with the 95% turnout and re-election by a 90-10% margin. Of course to achieve this goal, he probably will have to deploy his DHS domestic military to supervise how everyone of us will vote. Just like good old Saddam or Stalin would.
