To The Daily Sun,
I see where Bernadette Loesche wants to make voting more expedient and easier. Well, fine. I just question her plan to achieve this.
First she suggests mandatory voting for all citizens. Two problems here are: First, we would have to correctly identify all the eligible voters. That could put a slight crimp in Democratic Party's turnout in some places like Chicago; second, it would seem to me to violate the individuals rights. No one should be forced to vote any more then someone should be restricted from voting (providing they are eligible).
Her second point I could agree with — an end to gerrymandering. Only problem is how? Gerrymandering has been around as long as (anyone can remember) getting politicians to agree how it could be done is near impossible.
Berni writes as though this is a problem created by Republicans and the Tea Party. Nonsense. Keep in mind many voting districts are designed to assure minority populations have representation. That's gerrymandering, and I'm sure she would scream bloody murder if anyone suggested those districts be carved up.
Then she suggests weekend voting which I can't see affording any greater turnout. Would sports fans give up their games for the chance to vote, or a family vacation be curtailed? Doesn't sound like a valid improvement to me.
So what is so difficult with the way it is? If a person is away, say in the military or overseas or out of state on business, they can get absentee ballots. If home all they have to do is go to the polls and vote. Businesses allow workers time to go and vote if they want to. Thing is, many people just don't bother. So nothing Berni suggests would change that but her intentions are good even if she slips in a cheep shot at the GOP and the Tea Party.
On another subject I read where Hillary is being sued by two of the Benghazi victims families for wrongful deaths. Good luck to them, but they have a snowball's chance in you know where. I don't believe there is a court in this country that would touch this. We have already seen that the FBI and the Justice Department are no longer independent from political power so why should we expect anything more from the courts?
The Clintions have been investigated for more criminal activities then Al Capone and have slipped through the justice system time and time again. The system is rigged, folks. If any one of us had done even a fraction of the things Hillary has done we would be sitting in a federal penitentiary counting the years until we get out. And this is the person Democrats say is qualified for the presidency?
Hillary is already beholding to half the Muslim nations on earth and these are nations with some of the worst human rights violations on the planet. Does Hillary ever address any of this, heck no, she's been bought off and everyone knows it. She gives lip service it women's rights, gay rights and condemns fundamental(ist) Christians, the Tea Party, conservatives — anyone except Muslims.
How is that even possible? It's only possible because she will do anything to win. Any means justify s the ends and her ends are total control and subjection of the nation to her views and agendas and the rules and laws and rights of anyone else is expendable. You see it's all about Hillary.
