Democrats Suppress Military Vote Yet Again

You owe it to yourself to vote today, because not everyone has that privilege. For example, the members of the military who make free elections possible are often prevented from voting. The latest outrage:

A group of Republican senators said Monday that thousands of voter ballots are unlikely to reach military service members until after Nov. 6.

One day ahead of the election, Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) sent a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to express their concern over delays in ballots reaching military voters overseas.

All Republicans. What a coincidence.

“We write to express concerns over another serious failure by the Department of Defense (DoD) to safeguard the voting rights of our overseas military service members, which we believe could result in the imminent disenfranchisement of thousands,” the letter stated.

Mail redirection in the military can take between 14 to 50 days, meaning a ballot could reach the voter possibly more than a month after ballots have to be mailed back in order to be counted. The Military Postal Service Agency (MPSA) identified problems with the system after the 2010 election, but hasn’t implemented changes.

That’s because the MPSA falls under the Department of Defense, which in turn falls under Barack Hussein Obama — who obviously won’t be getting many votes from the heroes who defend our country against the Muslims and authoritarian collectivists with whom he identifies.

The senators advised Panetta to create a centralized mail redirection system and modernize military mail delivery.

Here’s a more likely way to get military votes counted. Send out ballots that only list Democrats. Obama’s bureaucrats would be certain to get them processed in time.

Alternatively, we could replace Obama with an honest man likely to restore the integrity of elections.

    QUOTABLE QUOTES:

    “Over half of the population holds the opinion that the current occupant of the White House is as bad as Joseph Stalin reincarnated and the largest minority thinks he is the Messiah. A large part of the population believes that half of the justices of the Supreme Court are communist and another part thinks the others are doddering old fools. The majority of the population thinks that members of Congress are, at best, incompetent yet these same people continually reelect their representative back to Congress. The majority of the population thinks that Senators are nothing but congressman with seniority or fancier offices. That they spend their days in long leisurely breakfast, followed by elegant lunch meetings, followed by late night dining at wine tasting events. The public at large think that lobbyists roam the halls of congress and the government bureaucracy passing out bags of money to unsuspecting individuals eagerly looking for a quick route to personal wealth.

    This writer can agree the current occupant of the White House is completely incompetent and his job performance is a disgrace; however, the other candidate in the 2008 election would have been just as ineffective. The last two justices added to the supreme court should have been rejected because of gross political prejudice on their part. The current congress is unable to get anything accomplished not for not trying, but because of ignorance of the public on the complete idiocy of liberalism.

    Who is the real culprit? The public press…”

    Valorie Jarret has already picked out the next three justices if things don’t go well today…
    but it just cheeses me off* that our armed forces give up so many rights and freedoms to serve their country and then to add insult to injury ,
    they’re disenfranchised.

    *when you succeed in cheesing off a cheese head…
    you’ve spit in the beer of a Packers fan….grrrrr

    This is simply another serious insult to America and it’s people who are by now so used to being lied to and abused by this govt. that, not only do they routinely tolerate the lies and abuses, but i truly believe they have come to like it.

    Any nation that does not keep it’s brave and dedicated warriors at the very top of it’s list of priorities doesn’t deserve those warriors or their endless sacrifices.

    Anyone surprised that Obama doesn’t have the military’s back?

    Anyone think that Obama’s failure to protect our ambassador in Libya was a mistake?

    Anyone think that Obama gives a damn about any American citizen?

    What is it about mail and government? It’s a bureaucratic match made in hell.

    If Obama wanted to drop in on Afghanistan on a moment’s notice, he could be there within 24 hours.

    There is no excuse for this. There is no reason that military people could not all be voting by internet, using their CAC cards to authenticate their identity. The technology for this is easy and cheap. In the mean time, the DoD has squandered billions on green energy projects and fuel efficient armored vehicles.

    It could easily be set up as a master data base that all service members feed their votes into and at teh end of election day, the Secretary of defense sends a single letter to each state office with the tally. Rally. This is a trivial problem.

    You act as if democrats are interested in helping the military vote. They are not. They will actively work to eliminate as much of the military vote as possible.

    So, if people in New Jersey can vote by email because of Sandy, the military couldn’t do the same?
    Who am I kidding, Lying Leon, that dog turd in a three piece suit, will make sure those ballots are lost, destroyed, mislaid, shredded, ANYTHING but counted.

    “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” – Valarie Jarret
    Unfortunately this view more than obviously includes their distain for our war fighters.
