Let cremains and kitties vote!
The usual suspects
are throwing around the usual arguments about Voter ID.
The whole issue is completely fictional. Null and void. It doesn't matter who you include or exclude from voting rolls.
You could open up voting to all people living and dead. Vote as many times as you want, vote on behalf of your long-gone great-grandfather, vote on behalf of your never-to-be-born great-granddaughter. Dogs and cats vote.
Or you could restrict voting to white male property owners over 35.
Doesn't matter. Results would still be the same, because the 'retail' end of voting is no longer a variable. All the action is in the district boundaries and the mechanical operations of the reliable votebots. Nobody else is interested, nobody else wants to get anywhere near this horrible corrupt monstrosity called Politics.
Examine the three most recent attempts to open up voting.
(1) 1919. Progressives brought women into the voting booth, hoping to insure more Progressive victories. What happened? Harding, Coolidge, Hoover. A solid line of big business Repoofs.
(2) 1965. Progressives brought more blacks into the voting booth, hoping to insure more Progressive victories. What happened? Nixon.
(3) 1968. Progressives brought 18-year-old hippies into the voting booth, hoping to insure more Progressive victories. What happened? Nixon again, followed by Carter, Reagan and Bush. We didn't get a president who even sounded
progressive until Obama, and he has turned out to be the most loyal Wall Street slave in history.
These three instances don't prove a negative correlation, because "lots of other shit was happening", as they say. But they solidly prove that altering the voting population won't give you the results you want.
The usual suspects are smart enough to know this. They don't give a happy horseshit about voters. They just need another fake issue to bring in more money for their own operations. They need a project that's guaranteed to fail, so they can blame the other side when it fails.
