Beto O'Rourke Announces "Voting Rights"Plan

Original Article

Posted By: Muguy, 6/6/2019 6:52:39 AM

Former Congressman and current Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke has laid out a plan he says would help the country "realize the full potential of our democracy." O'Rourke's campaign says the "Voting Rights and Democracy Reform Plan" could increase registration by 50 million voters and turn 35 million additional voters to the polls by 2024. O'Rourke's plan is built around three parts. One would focus on increasing voter turnout. The plan would allow same-day voter registration. Twenty states and Washington DC allow same-day registration now.​ Sixteen and 17 year olds would be automatically pre-registered.

Comments:

This is nothing more than lumping a bunch of radical ideas that are geared towards younger people who are easily swayed by social media into falling for a media campaign, allowing people to 'vote' without proper certification of residence and citizenship, and to restrict persons from donating to campaigns. Thrown in is a suggestion for term limits just to make it seem appealing but all of this taken together is just a plan to prevent any opposition from those who would see this for the sham that it is-- it is amazing how the media propped him up in the Texas Senate race, but now he can't draw their focus on his 'rockstar' status

I wish we would realize the full potential of our republic by making sure only citizens voted one time in their domiciled district.

Beto needs to go away. He reminds me of the second grader who's constantly acting out because he thinks you've forgotten he's there.

Beto is really off the mark. We have 40% who don't vote in Presidential races, and even more who don't vote in Congressional races. He's talking about a mere 50 million new registrations, which still doesn't equate to "voters". Americans have a long tradition of AVOIDING gub'mnt, and you can't make 40% of the adults ever vote. They don't want to. They won't like forced voting. They recoil at the idea they should be sullied with an immersion into politics. In the end our Presidents are selected by barely 30% of the adult citizens ~ in one party, but that's. how we do it.

Sixteen year olds voting? Might as well lower the age to six - everybody who makes first grade is eligible.

No Beto, we are not going to allow America-hating illegal aliens, terrorists and mush-headed teenagers to vote for our president. It's just not going to happen. Why don't you open a business waxing skateboards or whatever you do with them and stop annoying the adults.

Why is it that only Demonrats seem worried about getting people to the polls? What they're not saying is they will disguise illegals, felons, dead people voting under that same "plan." Sorry Dumbo-Beto we've come a long way since "Motor Voter" and the heinous Bill Clinton.

They don't want the extra 30 million registered to vote cast their own vote. They want the 30 million registered and then they will do the voting for them.

My parents purchased a tavern about 70 years ago, and I spent time there, getting to know the customers, and tending bar when I turned 21,m and home on leave. One regular customer, Fred, a factory worker, in his 60s, said something that rings a bell here. He complained about today's voting procedures. (current time was 1961) "Back when I was young, Fred said, it was worth something to vote - a few packs o0f cigarettes, a six pack of beer - and now - nothiing. Imagine what would happen under the fake mexican's plan. And imagine if all prisoners were allowed to vote - they apparently can in a few states.

They need to raise the age back to 21. And, if you're still on your parents health insurance, then it's 26 for that person to vote. Heck, raise the age for legal adult to 21, if that helps people. Better yet, install finger print technology for voting. Enable it to cross-check data bases to ensure only legal citizens, people aren't dead, incarcerated, committed, etc.. are allowed to vote.

Support for Trump dwindles among ICE officers 13 replies
Posted by Muguy 3/12/2019 1:19:28 PM Post Reply
ICE officers who endorsed President Trump in 2016 now say he has failed to follow through on his get-tough promises, saying catch-and-release of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. is not only still happening, but has gone into “overdrive.” Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers say they’re being roped into such mundane tasks as opening the doors on vans to release immigrants already caught by Border Patrol agents. That’s dragging the officers from their usual duties of nabbing fugitives, or scouring local prisons and jails for immigrant criminals who lived illegally in the U.S. ready to be deported.

The Jury in the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case has reached a verdict. According to our reporter in the Courtroom, the jury awarded $11 million. Here are the details: Allyn W. Gibson awarded $5.8 million, David Gibson #3 million, Gibson Bros. $2,274,500. Next Tuesday there will be a separate punitive damages which could be a double award (meaning tripling the $11 million to $33 million). According to Dan, Meredith Raimondo was held liable on the libel but not the other counts. We are still sorting out what that means in terms of damages against her.

The U.S. Park Police confirmed this week that Trump planned to attend this year’s celebration, which typically brings thousands to the nation’s capital. “President Trump’s efforts to insert politics into a celebration of our nation’s history is extremely alarming,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said in a statement on Thursday.

I suppose the headline for this entry might need to become a regular Power Line series between now and election day. It was as predictable as the sunrise that Biden’s long-time support of the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funding for elective abortion, would crumple under pressure from the Abortion Absolutists who now control Democratic Party dogma. I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that he crumpled so quickly. Get used to this. But I suppose that when you’re as wrinkled up as Joe is now, it is less noticeable when he crumples up under political pressure.

Are dads’ essential DIY skills in decline? According to new research, millennial dads are less capable than their own dads when it comes to everyday DIY fixes, preferring to rely on professional help instead. A new poll of 1,000 millennial dads and 1,000 baby boomer dads found that when a DIY task needs to be done at home, more than half of millennials prefer to call a professional. And when it comes to emergency “handiness” scenarios, millennial dads fall short in almost every category.
