Obama Sues to Restrict Military Votes From Counting

Obama Sues to Restrict Military Votes From Counting


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:


"For 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. "

I think it's unconscionable that we as a nation wouldn't make it as easy as possible for members of the military to vote. They arguably have more right to vote than the rest of us, since it is their service and sacrifice that ensures we have the right to vote in the first place.

If anyone proposes legislation to combat voter fraud, Democrats will loudly scream that the proposal could "disenfranchise" some voter, somewhere. We must ensure, they argue, that voting is easy and accessible to every single voter. Every voter, that is, except the men and women of our military.

Make no mistake, the Democrat lawsuit is intended to disenfranchise some unknown number of military voters. The judge should reject it with prejudice.

This human flesh Obama is killing me. Every single day he does and says things that make me so furious.

I don't remember any President ever having a lawsuit against States, our military or anything else. Obama is a first to do all these lawsuits.

Correct me, if I am wrong, but I believe the Al Gore Campaign sought similar restriction and/or total rejection of Military votes coming in from Iraq and Afghanistan, during the 2000 kerfuffle in Florida.

What they were and Obama is really afraid of is the fact that most of the military votes are likely to go against them because of their lack of real support for the Military and in essence the importrance of a strong defense.

Of course obama hates the military. It is patriotic, conservative and kills his fellow jihadists.

...when I was a kid in the 1950s , I watched this wrestler on TeeVee called
Handsome Johnny Berend. He would always say "Win if you can, lose if you must, but always, always cheat. I understand that Johnny is gone, but it seems that his spirit lives on in President I-Me-My...
