“President Barack Obama, along with many Democrats, likes to say that, while they may disagree with the GOP on many issues related to national security, they absolutely share their admiration and dedication to members of our armed forces. Obama, in particular, enjoys being seen visiting troops and having photos taken with members of our military. So, why is his campaign and the Democrat party suing to restrict their ability to vote in the upcoming election?

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.

I think its 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.”

  1. However, Obama does not have any right to stick his nose into the
    affairs of State voting laws and rules unless those rules do not meet
    U.S. Constitution. Since when does Obama want to pay attention to
    the U.S. Constitution? When it is at his advantage? Give me a break!

  2. Has there ever been a president that sued every other branch of our government from federal agencies to state and municipal government agencies when his re election is at risk? The only person or government agency that he hasn’t sued was Mr Rogers Neighborhood since Mr. Rogers is dead, so he can’t sue him but you could rest assured that Mr. Rogers will be voting in November pulling that big D lever along with many other dead and buried people.

    This is nothing more than Obama’s attempts to stop them for voting as they know most will vote for Mitt Romney. If this country allows him to do that, then we need to throw every party involved in his suit in a veiled attempt to to take away their voting rights. THey should be jailed if they do that. WHO SHOULD have a right to vote, the military who is fighting for our freedom. Don’t Let Obama take this away from them or us. If he succeeds, they could win and America will not survive 4 more years of Obama stripping our country of all of the money and taking away out ability to create jobs by not allowing drilling. We need to vote him out!!!

      Joyce, I think that if every Conservative registered at least one person to vote before November, we could kick his butt all the way back to Chicago.. or Kenya, Depends on what we believe.

      • Connie, if we could only get the honest voters who are already registered and are not Obamabots, Romney will win by a landslide.
        It seems like young and new voters, especially those going to college are taught more then the subjects they chose to learn, they are being taught by socialist and liberal professors who instill their political ideas in the heads of our children. My two daughters graduated from prestigious universities in Philadelphia, and before they started college, I told them to learn what they are taught and what they paid to be taught but ignore anything that their professors try to tell them as far as politics or their personal beliefs in anything outside of that they are payed to teach, and not long after they were in college both of them asked me how I knew that their teachers would try to instill their liberal ideas on them when I myself never went to college. I explained to them that although I don’t have the intelligence of a college grad, I always had commone sense and more important, street sense and that they are just as important in life as what you are taught in school and luckily they always took my advice and when they registered to vote, they both became Republicans even after i told them that living in Philadelphia and being a Republican will not get them any favors from politicians but they were like me and wanted to do everything on their own and be their own people. To sum this up they are the rare young people that are conservative in their views and now that they are aduts, they did not change their opinions.
        What i am saying is to try to register our young voters will more likely bring out more liberals to vote for Obama and my daughters just happened to be the exception to the rule.

    The Dems as a group hate our military. I hope they lose this fight. Our service men and women need every chance they can have to get their votes cast. There’s no excuse for the rest of us to not make it to the voter’s booth in the time allowed us.

    Obama has a lot of nerve to make it impossible for many in the military to vote while trying to keep Texas & other states from having voter ID cards. We have had a lot of dead people, illegals, criminals, etc. voting while denying that right to the very Military personnel who are protecting our rights to vote. Some with their very lives

  7. I have seen Obama many times disrespecting our flag as he disrespects our Constitution and anything that is positive about our great Country. He bowed to a Muslim leader, he was overheard on an open microphone telling the head of Russia to relay to Putin the KGB Putin that he will be more flexible once he is re elected when this was several months before the Russian elections and the polls had the race as a dead heat, so how did Obama know that Putin was going to win unless he had inside information from the Putin camp first hand.
    Our president without a doubt is a Communist and a Muslim, the open microphone conversation proved he is a Communist to me then reading what Reverand Jeramiah Wright recording for a book that Obama offered him $150,000 to say he regularly atends church services and that his daughter attend bible studies every sunday when both were lies, and when Wright told him that he will not lie for him or his agenda, Obama told Wright that his biggest problem is that he will not lie. That convinced me that although he was a member of Wrights bigoted church, he was still a closet Muslim and knew that a Muslim would never be elected to be the president of the United States.

    He acts as though Old Glory was going to fly off the flagpole and rip off the only piece of equipment he holds dear. He’s the living personification of the word, metrosexual. He only needs the people of the USA to be his meal ticket. Takes a lot of cash to cover up his marxist, muslim, past. (lower case intentional.) God bless all the small businessmen sticking it to him with signs telling him off.
