The White House Thursday walked back President Obama’s comments in favor of mandatory voting in the U.S.
There's still enough people left who are opposed to blatant communist insanity to prevent this head shot to our zombie nation. Wait a few more years, market it as cool and hip to vote with a bayonet in your back. It will happen, if the total collapse doesn't come first.
“The president was not making a specific policy prescription for the United States,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.
"He was just blowing hot air. Go back to sleep."
At a town-hall event in Cleveland on Wednesday, Mr. Obama described compulsory voting as “a better strategy” in the short term than pushing for a Constitutional amendment to counter increased campaign spending in the U.S. since the Supreme Court’s ruling in the “Citizens United” case.
We'll make sure every la-teen-oh and negro animal votes a straight "he look like me" and "gibbs me dat" ticket, while Whites will be forced at gun point to legitimize a corrupt and evil system with their participation. Sounds like a good solution to the "problem" of being able to spend your money on whatever you want. Also, big talk from a scumbag who took illegal contributions including foreign money. Ignore that, we need to have East German elections.
“It would be transformative if everybody voted,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall event in Cleveland. “That would counteract [campaign] money more than anything. If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country.”
It would be "transformative" in the same way infesting a dead body with maggots leads to an exciting change. The American Democracy is already a total farce, let's look for ways to make it even worse.
Mr. Earnest said Mr. Obama was giving “a pretty open-ended answer” in response to a question about the impact of money in elections.
"I knew he was going to talk about taking away our rights with government violence, but I didn't think he was going to go full Stalin."
Vote in rigged elections or go to the gulag!
Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, slammed the notion of mandatory voting, noting the decision to skip an election is a form of free speech protected by the First Amendment.
The Loser Party to the rescue, totally missing the point, as always. Ignore the coercive element, ignore the blatant appeal to mob rule, ignore the corruption, ignore the communism. Make a lame reference to our eroding freedoms. I'm sure the wise la-teen-ah dyke and the wise jew dyke and all the rest will have something to say about that soon.
Solving the campaign finance "problem."
