Two strange things happened this week. Well, they would be strange if you didn’t know anything about the Democratic Party, in any event, or if you took all of your cues from the mainstream media. For us, it just seems as though these things prove that Democrats are getting bolder about telling the country who they really are.
The first happened early in the week when Democrats decided, en masse, to vote down an add-on resolution to their big For The People House bill that would have expressed condemnation for cities allowing illegal immigrants to vote. Republicans endorsed the amendment in the hopes that Democrats could at least say in public that voting was a right that should be reserved for the citizens of the United States. Ten years ago, we can’t imagine that being a controversial measure. Alas, today’s Democratic Party can’t be bothered to protect the U.S. Constitution if it means angering their growing illegal immigrant base. They voted down the resolution.
Then on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told The Daily Caller that not only was she interested in removing as many barriers as possible to voting, she was also in favor of lowering the voting age to 16.
“I myself, personally, I’m not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16,” Pelosi said. “I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school when they’re interested in all of this when they’re learning about government to be able to vote.
“Some of the priorities in this bill are about transparency and openness and accessibility, and the rest,” she continued. “That’s a subject of debate but my view is that I would welcome it, but I’ve been in that position for a long time.”
Wow, so there you have it.
Democrats want to remove voter ID laws so that we have no idea who is coming out to stuff the ballot box.
They want to let illegal immigrants vote in local elections (which can only be a prelude to you-know-what).
They want to abolish the electoral college, which would essentially allow our presidential elections to be decided by New York, California, and a handful of other liberal states.
And if Pelosi’s endorsement is any indication, they want to let high school kids start voting.
This party is increasingly willing to tell us exactly who they are and exactly what they’re about. Maybe the American people should start listening.
