• Obama: Hey, Let’s Make Voting Mandatory

    It’s times like these that make one wonder what document it is that Barack Obama had claimed to become an expert in while he served as constitutional law professor at the University of Chicago Law School.

    Obama love mandates. He’s mandated that as condition of being a law-abiding U.S. citizen, that one must purchase heath insurance.

    And now, Barack has come out in support of mandating voting.

    “Other countries have mandatory voting,” Obama said Wednesday in Cleveland. Obama was answering a question about how to encourage Americans to vote as a means to offset large political campaign donations.

    “It would be transformative if everybody voted–that would counteract money more than anything,” Obama said. “The people who tend not to vote are young, they’re lower-income, they’re skewed more heavily towards immigrant groups and minority groups. There’s a reason why some folks try to keep them away from the polls.”

    So there you have it.

    Barack Obama wants America to be just like Australia where failing to vote is punishable by a hefty fine. Obama wants Americans to be forced to vote like the people of Belgium are. And in Belgium not voting and not paying your fine lands you in prison, according to CNN.

    One voting bloc Obama won’t have to force to vote are dead people. They seem to have no problem with showing up to the polls for Democrats.
