Go get ’em, boys!
Illinois Assembly passed and the governor signed new voting regulations giving increased time for early voting (there already was quite a bit of time for early voting), same day registrations (gee, because some people just don’t have the time to register to vote until voting day), AND abolished the requirement for voters to have an identification card to show poll workers (even though you have to have one or two for everything else you do in the U.S. but voting is not that important, and besides, it’s too much of a burden to require that of people).
And the excuses go on and on and on. Pretty soon, others will be allowed to vote in your place because well, gee, you just can’t get there at all, so I’ll vote in your place, yada, yada, yada. It’s ok, because, well, you would have voted if you could have, and it’s not like it’s an extra vote, after all. I’m just voting FOR you, because you aren’t using your vote, so I will.
Can’t you just see it coming?
The press release coming out of Springfield was so much progressive propaganda. I work for a newspaper, but I just couldn’t see myself putting it in our paper without the corresponding dissent from one of my favorite column writers who can address each progressive deception appropriately.
I like what Mahatma Gandhi said: First they ignore you, then they mock you, then they fight you, then you win. Yeh.
Democracy Alliance held a conference recently in Chicago. Someone left one of their manuals behind with a list of the member groups in it. For a 503 c(4) organization that likes to keep its members’ names secret, this was quite a gift. It’s a glimpse into the Progressive agenda and pretty good propaganda reading. There are two documents. One is the list of the Alliance members and their budgets and purpose. The other is the agenda (Spring 2014 DAIR) and plan for the upcoming year and beyond. It’s quite a coup to have this for our perusal. I think you’ll find it interesting reading.
