Obama Is Considering Mandatory Voting

According to statist ideology, that which isn’t forbidden ought to be mandatory. Consequently,

Obama floated the idea of mandatory voting in the U.S. while speaking to a civic group in Cleveland on Wednesday. …

“If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country,” Obama said, calling it “potentially transformative.”

The point would be the same as with Democrat efforts to facilitate voting by felons and illegal aliens. It is assumed that most people who are too lazy to vote unless forced to would vote for the Free Handouts at Someone Else’s Expense party.

Obama has experience in manipulating the voting process so as to secure victories for Democrats. Way back in 1995, he sued on behalf of ACORN regarding implementation of the Motor Voter law in Illinois.

Naturally the proposal is framed within neo-Marxist ideology:

Obama said he thought it would be “fun” for the U.S. to consider amending the Constitution to change the role that money plays in the electoral system.

People of Obama’s caliber having fun by amending the Constitution will horrify any patriotic American.

Rendering elections ever more farcical.
