Report: Obama Campaign Sues To Restrict Military Voting

Fox News

President Barack Obama, along with many Democrats, likes to say that, while  they may disagree with the GOP on many issues related to national security, they  absolutely share their admiration and dedication to members of our armed forces.  Obama, in particular, enjoys being seen visiting troops and having photos taken  with members of our military. So, why is his campaign and the Democrat party  suing to restrict their ability to vote in the upcoming election?

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 are given 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.

I think its unconscionable that we as a nation wouldn’t make it as easy as  possible for members of the military to vote. They arguably have more right to  vote than the rest of us, since it is their service and sacrifice that ensures  we have the right to vote in the first place.

If anyone proposes legislation to combat voter fraud, Democrats will loudly  scream that the proposal could “disenfranchise” some voter, somewhere. We must  ensure, they argue, that voting is easy and accessible to every single voter.  Every voter, that is, except the men and women of our military.

Make no mistake, the Democrat lawsuit is intended to disenfranchise some  unknown number of military voters. The judge should reject it with  prejudice.
