An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Some voters were reportedly turned away from the polls on Michigan’s primary election day for refusing to fill out the new “citizenship” box on their ballot application.
Jocelyn Bensen, Director of the Michigan Center for Election Law, said they’ve been taking calls from confused voters across the state regarding this issue. She’s criticizing the Secretary of State’s office for failing to remind clerks that voters who decline to fill out the citizenship box must still be allowed to cast a ballot.
Excuse me, but if you are unwilling to confirm that you a are legally voting citizen, then you really have no business voting at all!
Civil liberties groups have said the question is an attempt to discourage people from voting and that asking people to re-affirm their citizenship is redundant.
Complete and utter horse manure! How is it redundant??? According to what I’ve been able to find, the state of Michigan requests an ID…not requires, but requests. If you don’t have a photo ID, is it so difficult to state that you are a legally voting citizen? If it turns out you are not, then you have broken federal law, not that this justice department gives a flying flip, but hopefully after the upcoming election, that will be resolved. So, if you say you are a citizen, and you aren’t….hoosegow, then deportation. It’s really not that complicated! Damn skippy we want to discourage people who are NOT legally eligible to vote, from attempting to ILLEGALLY vote! DUH!
If these so called ‘civil liberties’ groups were so concerned, why aren’t they fighting for OUR right not to have our votes nullified by ILLEGAL voters? Hmmm….????? Nope….it’s got nothing to do with liberties, civil or otherwise! It’s all about the power that criminal voters grant to the leftards! “Lie, cheat, and steal!” That’s their motto! And if that doesn’t work….destroy!
