If you don't regularly visit conservative media sites, no doubt you are unaware that a) states are required to send out military ballots by a certain date according to federal law but b) there is very little the federal government can do about enforcement. Very little. If they do anything at all. Historically, blue states deprive military personnel their right to vote by not sending them their ballots in time for them to be returned by the cutoff day. Cheap! Low blow! If anyone should be guaranteed a right to vote in this country, it should be those who defend her and protect her.
This year, true to form, at least four states failed to meet the deadline: Vermont, Michigan, Mississippi and Wisconsin. I was surprised to see Illinois missing from this list because they sure belonged on it back in 2008, along with New York. This year, the Romney campaign has filed a lawsuit in behalf of military voters in Wisconsin, asking they be granted an extension.
The only Congressmen who seem to care that military people are being deprived their Constitutional right to vote are the Republicans. Yes, the military usually votes Republican. But this issue is deeper than that. Do Congressional Democrats care so little about the nearly-sacred right to vote in this country? Meanwhile, many Democrats have been caught voting twice - a felony. They've joked about "finding" votes for themselves after the election - as they sure have experience doing in past elections in Minnesota, for example. Or Wisconsin, when they bussed in a bunch of people from Michigan to vote for the Recall election - yielding 119% voter turnout in Madison. There are so many other examples. The Obama campaign sued to restrict military voting and has sought its restriction in Ohio. No, Democrats don't care about the Constitution. Only themselves and their power.
Well, their time is up. The liberal media has become so blatantly biased that people are turning away and seeking more information elsewhere. This couldn't be better for America. If more people distrust the liberal machine that is the DNC and news media corporations, the more likely they'll understand that Republicans are right when they say we can't afford to continue spending the way we have been. And that Romney/Ryan aren't who the media say they are. And that Obama isn't who the media says he is either - they fail to report his failures.
As a reminder, if you can't watch the debate tonight, do yourself the favor of watching it before listening to any spinning of the debate. Make your own opinion, free from any one else. Transcripts are no longer reliable - substantive statements were omitted from both Romney and Ryan in their respective debates. Don't trust the media for anything other than reliable bias and misrepresentation of every single topic they cover. Not for fair and balanced coverage. For that, you must read both sides. Also be prepared for another two on one debate like we "enjoyed" last week.
