Steve K.: If true, it would be unconstitutional, violates the 1st amendment for one thing. Not voting is one way of protesting.
Rayn: Indeed! Penalizing those New Yorkers who choose to Vacate The Vote in an effort to Withdraw Consent is not only an assault against free speech, and freedom of choice – it also represents a shameless effort to run an extortion racket, too! These political parasites are nothing more than a legally-protected criminal caste!
(Glenn Blain) A state lawmaker from Manhattan wants to make it costly for New Yorkers not to vote.
Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, a Democrat, introduced legislation this week that would establish “compulsory voting” in the state and punish those who don’t vote with a $10 fine.
“Mandatory voting would drastically increase civic participation and transform the political arena by making politicians more reflective of the constituents that elected them,” Glick wrote in a memo submitted with the bill.
As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Skeptic Society,” which I originally posted to my wall in February of 2016, and decidedly re-shared it, along with commentary…
“That face you make when you wanted police accountability but voted for more government”
Indeed, it’s the city where, as a young state senator in 2002, Obama gave an antiwar rally speech railing against the “dumb,” “rash” rush to war in Iraq; and where, as a presidential candidate five years later, he promised to “turn the page on the imperial presidency” and usher in “a new dawn of peace.” And yet, 2008’s “peace candidate” will leave office as the first two-term president in American history to have been at war every day of his presidency, having dropped over 25,000 bombs on seven countries in 2016 alone.
Ha! Actually, Hillary, the corrupt, pro-war, sold-out, corporate puppet, deserves most of the blame, along with the pathetic, primary-rigging DNC that propped her up. And, after that, blame Democratic voters, who didn’t protest the DNC’s Clinton selection, along with the weak and ineffectual Bernie Sanders, who capitulated to, then quickly began shilling for, Clinton. Last, but not least, blame the professionally-lying mainstream media monopoly, who projected a Hillary win all the way up until the evening of election day, giving Democrats a false sense of comfort, and made them arrogantly complacent about Hillary’s underhanded take-over project.
Rayn: Oh, snap! Killary’s “we came, we saw, he died” sound byte was turned into a song! This is just perfect!
