Military Absentee Voting

There is an epic rhyme attributed to Rudyard Kipling which covers this morning’s post.

“God and the soldier, we adore,
In time of danger, not before.
The danger passed and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the soldier slighted.”

The state of Virginia, in a blatant effort to stifle the voting franchise granted to ALL its citizens, has enforced a law which allows them to send absentee voter packages and notification of election to military citizens out of state the day before the election. That is not a typo—they can mail these packages to points all over the globe the day before the election. This applies not only to those who wear the uniform but their dependants as well, who accompany them on some far flung assignments.

“The Democratic Chairwoman of the Virginia State Board of Election (appointed by the Democratic National Committee Chair Tim Kaine, in his capacity as Virginia Governor) Jean Cunningham just claimed a legal basis for massively raising the barrier to voting for soldiers at war.” The original assertion is here.

Not only is this a disgrace to disenfranchise these brave young men and women but it is immoral. Since national elections are involved, it would appear that a remedy may lie in the congress. This is a question which should be addressed immediately and corrected to enable them to vote. We expect voter fraud and manipulation from ACORN and the goons of SEIU but not overt action by elected officials to subvert the right to vote by the military.

At the least, in Kipling’s poem, the slight of God and soldier waited until the dangers were past. In the mind of today’s Democrat party in their avaricious pursuit of an election at any cost, no one is immune from their mischief even while fighting for their lives.

Is their no lower boundary to which these cretins will stoop?

In His abiding love,

Nice job, Virginia politicians. Why don't you just spit in their faces while you're at it?

Are you so afraid of the voting preferences of the military that you would stoop this low?
