Obama Campaign Sues to Restrict Military Voting

While Barack Obama and the Democrats like to give lip service to our men and women in uniform, it's what they do that betrays their rhetoric. He likes to get his picture with troops even though behind closed doors they are giving him the finger and sleeping during his speeches. This all makes things quite interesting when both the Obama campaign and the Democrat party are suing to restrict the military's ability to vote in the upcoming election.

Breitbart.com reports,

On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state's law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is "arbitrary" with "no discernible rational basis."

Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as "arbitrary" and having "no discernible rational basis", I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women's time and their obligations to their sworn duty.

The National Defense Committee reports:

[f]or each of the last three years, the Department of Defense’s Federal Voting Assistance Program has reported to the President and the Congress that the number one reason for military voter disenfranchisement is inadequate time to successfully vote.

So now we see the Democrat playbook come out again. We see the praise of the lips while they drive the knife into the back of our service men and women that they are using abroad in unconsitutional wars. While I disagree with Mike Flynn that they "have more right to vote than the rest of us," I emphatically agree that they have the right to vote and that right should be defended by those of us at home.

While Republicans have been battling for Voter ID laws, maybe they should include in that battle protection of the military's vote.

We all know what is coming in November. The race will probably be close and this is the Chicago style thuggery of applying pressure where the Democrats can in order to cheat in the elections. Make no mistake about it, attempts to restrict the military's vote is an attempt at voter fraud.

    We need to be suing Obama for contracting with a foreign nation to count our votes.  That has to be unconstitutional.

    R Collins For those of us who keep up with what is going on, there is no need to see the film OB 2016 for we should be voting him out.  In fact, the Congress without their you know what should have voted him out of office by this time along with all his cronies.  I had this guy pegged before he was elected.  Character, ya right.  Certainly not of the type that should be in the White House.  Not any that I know.   What an embarrassment.  To think if those papers he has locked up should ever become public we will not be able to explain it away as an embarrassment.  We are being looked down upon now throughout the world.  I just can't imagine our standing.  Ya! he's transparent all right.  Why would he lock the records.  Which is to be revealed about this guy.

    Go see the film Obama 2016 and you will know his true identity.

    OK, now, let me see if I have this straight:  The men and women of the Military, who enlisted of their own freewill, for whatever their reasons, and who are fighting to preserve OUR rights, have to give up THEIR rights in order to serve?

    Sure.....makes perfect sense.......if your a Mongoose or an Ostrich with it's head in the sand.   Come on fellow Americans.......FIRE OBAMA on Election Day.  It just HAS to be done!!!!!!!     Give Nancy a box of chocolate strawberries and her walking papers and help ole Harry Reid down the steps of the Capital and send him packing as well.


    Thank you for your kind attention to this extremely important situation.

    There is no excuse for our military personnel to get the ballots in time.  Each unit should have a voting rep to insure that all absentee ballots are completed and returned in time to the appropriate authority of the state.  Any government official who knowingly attempts to deny any military servicemember from voting should automatically be fired with loss of a benefits.  I just can't imagine that there would be a decrease in the number of servicemembers requesting a ballot at this point.  It would appear to me that they may possibly are being threatened.  If that's the case they have a Chain of Command and also their representatives at the federal as well as the state level to report such activity.  I don't believe this fellow in the White House has much respect at all for our service men and women..  You have to lead by example and this White House has fallen beyond short of that.

    Just VOTE and get Obama out so we can have our country BACK!
