So, those who are not involved in Politics day-to-day, this half of the post is for you.
Learn it. Know it. Live it.
1) Register with your local Politico (or your favorite Politico Goth) -- they will move the paperwork as soon as you sign up. Look for Honest Brokers among the Partisans; There are more "Honest Brokers," in the Right then the Left. We on the Right might not agree with your Party Designation, but we'll support you're Right to vote as you please.
The best Politicos will Lobby you for their Party Designation and then accept your decision. (Most Partisan and Bloggers on the Left, don't)
2) Confirm with your Secretary of State (no, not the Foreign Policy cabinet, but the folks people who help determine the Votes in your state) that you are Registered. Give it one month after your Politico mails your Registration. Stay in touch with your Politico. You can learn from each other.
3) Election Day -- Bring your ID and then, VOTE! Why the ID? If you never heard of Zombie Voters of Chicago or Identity theft, then ignore it.
However, I cannot go into clubs without ID; I can't use my Debit (or credit) card without ID, so why should voting be exempt?
4) Go home and watch the returns! (Or find your Politico Goth friend and find an Election night party to enjoy)
See how easy it is?
Anyone campaigning against Voter ID's are perfectly fine if your identity is borrowed. If borrowing identity is bad for Credit reasons, why not for Voting reasons?
Now, we come to the Advanced class, those who don't do Politics full time are excused.
|American Electoral College 2012 - 2020|
Here is where I introduce my mentor, Shawn Steel's group: Save Our Electoral College!
There was a reason that the Founding fathers created the Electoral College. The Occupy Wall Street were mobs of Jacobin's. If they had the guillotine, I'm sure it would have been very busy over the past two months.
To quote Men in Black: A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it.
Yet, I still trust the people when they vote, Democrats, less so. I like people, and that's another reason why I am in politics. If you go around hating on people and hating everything, stay out of Politics, you will have a third heart attack or be a crazy shooter.
Can I get a "Hell NO!" (Hell NO!) (Thank you, Speaker Boehner.)
Now then, why should we partisans, Polticos and Bloggers defend the Electoral College?
Think of Zombie Voters in Chicago or during the Washington Governors race of 2004 or the Minnesota Senate race of 2008. Zombie Voters exist in cities and can overwhelm the popular vote within a state, and the GOP wants to agree with this?
I'm a Goth; I know about Zombies :}
Every member of the CRP Platform Committee -- every State in the Union that is building their platform for 2012, and of course, the 2012 Platform being written for Tampa should add these words:
"The Republican Party will stand for, and protect, the Right of each State in the Union to be Represented as the Founders decided, by the Electoral College. The Democrats seek to change the Electoral Rules when they lose, we who are in the GOP trust the Rules as the Founders made.And unlike the Democrats, we also trust the voters."
If we go to the NPV system, Zombie Voters will control the cities and (especially in places without Voter ID's) and the GOP will be shut out of the White House (rather then every few years when the tide changes, no this will be a permanent thing).
So, to my Bloggers, partisans and politicos, please support Save Our Electoral College and promote it in your state!
My question: Why don't the Democrats want Voter Id's and the Electoral College? Why change the rules?
