Universal Voter Registration: The Death Knell of Free Elections

For a year now, a dark, often unspoken caveat has been lurking in the backgrounds of our minds when the discussion has turned to the prospect of Republican gains in the 2010 elections. Some have dared speak it aloud: “Yes, the Democrats are going to be swept away in ‘10 — if we still have free elections by then.”

The integrity of the democratic process has taken enough of a pounding in recent years thanks to a litany of high-profile Democrat election thefts: the Governor’s Mansion in Washington; a Senate seat in Minnesota; who knows how many razor-thin House elections; and of course, the 2000 attempt at the grandest electoral heist of all. (Even the high-profile prostitution of Mary Landrieu over health care makes it worth remembering how she came into office in 1996.) With the installation of the Chicago Thugocracy, the appropriation of the Census by Rahm Emanuel, and the Congress’ apparent fearlessness in pushing through legislation that has enraged two-thirds of the American people, conservative imagination has been sparked on the question of how Democrats might altogether insulate themselves from that inconvenient biennial bugaboo of federal elections.

Thanks to John Fund, we may have our answer: Universal Voter Registration. As Fund put it:

“In January, Chuck Schumer and Barney Frank will propose universal voter registration. What is universal voter registration? It means all of the state laws on elections will be overriden by a federal mandate. The feds will tell the states: ’take everyone on every list of welfare that you have, take everyone on every list of unemployed you have, take everyone on every list of property owners, take everyone on every list of driver’s license holders and register them to vote regardless of whether they want to be…’”

Universal Voter Registration would mean the end of the democratic process in America. It would turn every red state blue. It would turn our assumptions about 2010 on their ear…

…Leftists have been working for years to put as many of their number into positions to steal as many elections as possible; hence such endeavors as The Secretary of State Project. Universal Voter Registration will be the oil for the machinery they have been so successful at building.

This is why Mary Landrieu is not concerned about her next election. Or Ben Nelson. Or Blanche Lincoln. Or even John Murtha. They belong to that once-in-a-lifetime trifecta of rabid socialist President and supermajority Democrat dominance of both houses of Congress, a trifecta that has bred their arrogant push to drive their legislative tanks over the backs of the American people; to see to it that they not only will they, the Left, get everything they have ever wanted, they will never have to pay a price for it…
