Elections: Those who crave political power the most are the very ones who should never get close to it. This tells us a lot about Democrats' efforts to set up an arrangement in which they will run things forever.
In another Democratic scheme to fix elections, iVote, a group made up of former Clinton and Obama aides, plans to spend "up to $10 million on a push to make voter registration automatic whenever someone gets a driver's license," reports the New York Times. Only when a driver objects will the registration not be completed.
In other words, iVote wants to place on the voter rolls people who don't care enough about voting to register themselves. Is this a wise method for choosing the lawmakers who run our governments?
The Democrats have made it clear for some time that they want the least-informed among us to vote, and it's not because they believe it promotes the health of the republic. It is an entirely self-serving exercise.
Columnist George Will has made some of the most cogent arguments against this sort of scheming through the decades, pointing out at various times that a smaller electorate is a smarter electorate; that the people enrolled to vote through these registration efforts "will be those people who are especially uninterested in, and hence especially uninformed about, public affairs"; and that the " kind of people will not bestir themselves to exercise their franchise if doing so requires them to get off their couches" and vote "are barely interested, and hence probably are barely informed."Read the rest of this IBD editorial HERE.
