Obama and Democrats Denying Our Soldiers The Vote!!!!

Denying Our Soldiers The Vote

Investors Business Daily

The Department of Justice is failing to enforce a law that protects the voting rights of soldiers overseas. They're allowed to fight and die for their country, but they can't vote for its leaders?

Last Saturday was the deadline under the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE) for states to have sent unmarked absentee ballots to soldiers overseas so they can exercise the same right to vote as those they risk their lives to protect, including Afghans and Iraqis.

The MOVE Act, passed with overwhelming bipartisan support last year, says states must provide overseas ballots 45 days before a federal election. Waivers can be granted under certain circumstances, but only if states can prove the votes of service members can still be cast and counted.

Five states — Delaware, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Washington — were granted waivers. Other states have indicated they were having difficulty complying, though it's hard to fathom what prevents them from ensuring service members from their states can vote.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who co-authored the law, says that despite repeated inquiries, DOJ has provided no substantive information on the level of compliance or how Justice intends to enforce the MOVE Act.

"This law represents the most meaningful reform in this area in decades, but it is not going to enforce itself," Cornyn wrote in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder.
"Full compliance by the states depends on the DOJ making it a priority. The disenfranchisement of military voters must come to an end. If it is allowed to continue, it will represent a shameful failure to honor the heroic service of those who defend America."

Obama I hate you, I hate the dems that can't get out of the shade of the obamaworld and see there are also dems serving our country. Hello~ if any human being should be allowed, made it easy for them to be able to vote it is the vote of those serving our country and our Veterans. Everyone else IMO comes next.

This ticks me off beyond words I can form properly. Damn anyone that will not work their glutes off to make it possiblel for our troops to vote.

Another form of voter fraud by Democrat state attorney generals. "Losing" overseas military votes is a crime and some AJs should have been hung in the 08 elections.

When I was stationed overseas, I never had a problem getting an absentee ballot or sending it in on time. The legal office on base always had the necessary ballots for my state. I don't understand why they're now having problems these past years.

Tom, I wish sooooo much they would have taken this to take in 08 too.

Bob, thanks for sharing about your experiences with voting when you were overseas.

It sure seems that whenever the dems are in the majority things always get messed up and messed with. Things that would be so simple to straighten out or just simply vote yes on.
