When states want to purge their voting rolls of non-citizens, or when they push to request identification for voting, the Democrats immediately yell “disenfranchisement” and racism” And of course Eric Holder launches lawsuits right and left.
But apparently, it’s not disenfranchisement when Democrats try to restrict military voting, like they recently did in Ohio.
On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state’s law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is “arbitrary” with “no discernible rational basis.”
Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as “arbitrary” and having “no discernible rational basis,” I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women’s time and their obligations to their sworn duty.
The National Defense Committee reports:
[f]or each of the last three years, the Department of Defense’s Federal Voting Assistance Program has reported to the President and the Congress that the number one reason for military voter disenfranchisement is inadequate time to successfully vote.
Of course Obama wants to restrict military voting. The military is one group of government employees that is usually conservative (unlike most public school teachers). That’s why Democrats/liberals are hostile to them. They don’t want America to be a super power.
As for Obama and Eric Holder, with all their lawsuits and executive orders, they’re opening up the America’s floodgates in order to bring in a new voting base who they know will always vote Democrat.
