IT’S COMING … 

|| By FITSNEWS || Remember “Vote or Die?” It was rapper P. Diddy‘s 2004 campaign to encourage young people to cast their ballots in American political elections.

Well guess what … a decade after Diddy’s “Citizen Change” organization disbanded, “Vote or Die” is making a comeback.

According to U.S. president Barack Obama, the time has come for America to consider mandatory voting.  And no, that’s not “Vote or Die,” necessarily, but it is “Vote or Be Cited/ Fined/ Possibly Jailed.”

“In Australia and some other countries, there’s mandatory voting,” Obama said this week during a speech in Cleveland, Ohio.  “It would be transformative if everybody voted.  That would counteract money more than anything.  If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country.”

Okay … but what about individual liberty?

Can government really compel its citizens to vote?

Oh … and what about the lack of anything resembling a real choice in U.S. elections?

Riddle us THAT …

Anyway, in continuing to push the mandatory voting idea Obama invoked race … and class warfare.

“The people who tend not to vote are young, they’re lower-income, they’re skewed more heavily towards immigrant groups and minority groups,” Obama said.  “And they’re often the folks who are there scratching and climbing to get into the middle class and they’re working hard and there’s a reason why some folks try to keep them away from the polls. We should want to get them into the polls.”

Again … really? 

Last time we checked Obama’s administration has been a disaster for black people.  And for middle and lower class people.  So why do poor minorities continue supporting him and his liberal allies?

Oh right … “Republicans.”  We forgot.

Look: Civic engagement is obviously a good thing.  And the influence of money in politics is clearly a corrosive … and manipulative influence.  And nothing ever changes in either major party because the legacy media is in the tank for the powers that be, conditioned to foment meaningless “red v. blue” partisanship while glossing over the marginal differences that really exist between the two parties.

But compulsory voting?  Yeah … there’s just no way our system’s ills are ever going to be remedied by forcing people to vote.  That’s a violation of the most basic freedoms we have.

In fact our argument to those who would compel voting is simple: Try giving people a real choice as opposed to forcing them to make a false one.

Maybe that would boost turnout …

But is it really a bad idea? My wife’s home country has mandatory voting for everyone under the age of 65 (they don’t want to twist arms on elderly) – and you get selected for poll work same as jury duty. If everyone voted no one could bitch about poor turnout. Of course, let many folks vote from their iPhone and participation rates would skyrocket.

Sometimes a compassion requires a little abstracting. And that’s not something the simple-minded are capable of. If it’s not spelled out for you, specifically, you cannot grasp the concept.
So I just suggest you don’t try. Because all you really do is show how limited you are, intellectually.

Buz Martin March 19, 2015 at 6:14 pm

Obama has indeed been very close to communists in his life. Some who oppose him, though, have actually BEEN communists in their lives. Or their parents or mentors were. Krystol, Wolfowitz, a few other Trotskyite communists who started the neocon movement. Some say a neocon is a liberal that got mugged. More like a communist that got butthurt because the other commies wouldn’t let ’em run the game, so the took their ball and went over to play with their supposed opposites.

Just a question: Is it possible to “track” a person’s individual voting record? For instance, if I always vote republican, is that recorded to my name or voter ID over time? Is it in a database somewhere? I could see this leading to “lists” of potential enemies or “non-supporters” for whomever is in office.

You can be tracked based on which primary you vote in: R or D…but lots of Ds vote in the R Primary because they have NO chance to get elected, so they vote for the most liberal R…

It’s why the SC-GOP REALLY needs to close its primaries. It’s possibly why we got Graham again for 6 more years. The Ds voted him in…Same w/ McCain winning the primary in 2008….

They could tell if you voted in a “republican” primary but in the generals, they can only tell that you voted. Plenty of people vote in the “other parties” primaries in an effort to throw a monkey wrench into the system. Fortunately they generally are in insufficient numbers to actually affect outcomes.

“…That would counteract money more than anything…”

Not unexpectedly, the exact opposite is true. In most “low turn out” elections, the voters are by and large more informed and more involved in the process.

The only way you could win in an “everybody votes” system is to get your name out there. Getting your name out there costs money. For the life of me, why we would want more stupid/uniformed/no skin in the game people voting is hard to understand

What if I live in NYC where many people rent? They can’t vote? What about all the guys working oil fields in North Dakota – living in free apartments from the employer – they can’t vote? Military members living on base? Adults living at home with elderly parents as care givers, or elderly parents living with their kids? Young people in basic training? College students? Someone living on a house boat? I said below – my wife’s home country requires mandatory voting. There are those that complain that it helps the leftist President they have now, but then they had 12 years of conservative Presidents before. And in the last municiple elections the leftist President got creamed in the four largest cities. And if your not a Senior Citizen you get selected for working at the Polls, as if it were jury duty. If you have HS kids you bring them to help as well. I’d be for Mandatory if you could allow me to vote from my iPhone or through a portal.

The Colonel March 19, 2015 at 4:42 pm

The “property owner” part is problematic. Maybe substitute “net tax payer” or allow the car our house boat to serve as “property”. The eighteen year old with no job and the ubiquitous “welfare king/queen crack whore” who contribute nothing and have no skin in the game should not have a vote.

Sounds harsh doesn’t it? I keep going back to this quote when I feel like I’m being mean: “..A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.”

Jack March 19, 2015 at 5:22 pm

Tell me Colonel, what skin does a defense contractor who pays 5 million a year in taxes and gets back 50 million a year in government money have in the game?

The Colonel March 19, 2015 at 5:25 pm

The blood sweat and tears it took to build the business? If he gets 50,000,000 in pay, he’s laid out 45,000,000 in expenses.

Jack March 19, 2015 at 5:38 pm

Bull shit. Like public employees he is living on the backs of the taxpayer. No skin in the game. Government is a profit center for him. Some congressman he paid got his business a contract. He takes more than he gives. Maybe only people who pay more to the government than they take from government should be allowed to vote. Of course that cuts out all public employees, and most people on Social Security.

The Colonel March 19, 2015 at 5:42 pm

Yeah, I know, he didn’t build that. The gubamint just gives him money…

Jack March 19, 2015 at 5:54 pm

You see thats the problem with the elitist class. They think they are more deserving than a guy who is down on his luck, or a young kid trying to work his way through college, or a waitress working two jobs to support her kids and living in a slum, because that is all she can afford. They think they know better how to run the country and what the country needs. They can’t see that from a taker standpoint, they make a guy on welfare look like a neophyte.

Maybe they are scarfing down a billion dollars a year of taxpayer money on gubment contract. Maybe they work for a University teaching and they are scarfing down 75k to 100k a year in taxpayer money. Some of them have done no more than the kid working on his degree currently. But they sit on their ass and bitch about the poor slob who gets $100 a week in food stamps and cry about the deficit..

We all have skin in the game. Its called real skin. Everybody has a stake in the future of the country. Everybody has a perspective to offer. If we let your system work, we may as well be modern day Russia or any other Oligarchy. A hell hole run by greedy bastards..

Point of Order March 20, 2015 at 8:25 am

That’s not the point Rocky, the point is to try to eliminate all the influence of those that receive benefit from gov’t monetarily from the voting process….regardless of their “function”.

Those that aren’t “net taxpayers”, have a conflict of interest.

Point of Order March 20, 2015 at 8:23 am

as it should if you want to remain logically consistent and fair…

Point of Order March 20, 2015 at 8:22 am

Still with your “net taxpayer” theme Colonel…it makes more logical sense…in which case of the head of Haliburton, or anyone, can trace more income being received from gov’t than paid in taxes…they shouldn’t get a vote…because they are on a form of the public dole.

Tom March 19, 2015 at 5:41 pm

Halliburton is estimated to have made over 500 million in profits on the Iraq war. Of course we will never know, because they moved their headquarters to Dubai so they would not have to reveal how much they made. I say they definitely have no skin in the game.

“Defense Contractor” nice straw man but I’ll play. We can exclude from the right to vote all gubamint contractors who make more than one million a year.

Colonel's point March 20, 2015 at 8:21 am

“net taxpayer”

…means he couldn’t vote.

Rocky March 19, 2015 at 6:18 pm

I might actually agree with the net tax payer part. And to fix it – how about we actually get those who don’t Net Tax Payer to start being tax payers. I’m for tax credits when it’s a family where the parents are young and trying to finish college, but if you’re 32, your wife is 28, you both work and have a child, you should be paying something. My biggest problem with the Bush tax cuts was the candy of the expanded tax credits. In that regard – I fail to see where Bush Rove were conservatives. And remember, I am a liberal.

Tom March 23, 2015 at 12:05 pm

You are playing into the Republican game. You are only looking at income taxes. The government (Federal and State) is supported by a lot of different types taxes. Even the poorest of us pay some taxes.

Instead of a penalty for not voting, let’s just pay people to vote. No. That would cost taxpayers too much. I know. Let’s let voters sell their vote to the highest bidder.
A true libertarian would be for legal sale of marijuana, sex and your vote. It’s done by representatives and senators all the time. It works in Chicago.

I’ve got it. No food stamps and no welfare unless you vote. There that will show them.

Fuck Obama. Fuck that ugly angry black woman wife of his, too. Both are pig shits. Try to make me vote if I do not want to vote. Try to punish people who do not wish to vote, and they will likely lock and load in massive numbers and go after these fucked up politicians who think they OWN you. Come on you pussy ass politicians. I DARE YOU … Push tens of millions to come after you with assault weapons in tow.

Does this mean those who are incarcerated for crimes like murder and child molestation get to vote? Does their vote count the same as a tax-paying, law-abiding citizens with no criminal convictions?

PRO TIP:

SLED DOG RULE–
If you ain’t the lead dog…the scenery never changes.

Full voter participation won’t change the powers that be…it will only give them more “legitimacy”. TBG for one never bitches about low voter turnout. Sure everyone thinks their candidate would have done better…
