    Why Every LEGAL AMERICAN Must Vote!

    Why Every LEGAL AMERICAN Must Vote!

    Posted by Stingray USN Veteran on October 11, 2014 at 8:59am

    Posted on-line by the USPU, VDA, and NALC, this is an absolute MUST READ! If Americans don't understand this, and the importance of it, we have no business calling ourselves Americans!

    The most common statement about today's elections is that "elections don't matter!" Yet, never has there been a
    moment in history when it was more critical for every AMERICAN to vote very carefully!
    The reason can be stated in a single sentence... Because every non-American and anti-American will vote!
    I choose to believe that the non-Americans and anti-Americans do not yet outnumber the AMERICANS, and all
    recent polling data supports that belief, showing more than 70% opposed to current federal leadership. But it won't
    matter if the enemy outnumbers Americans at the polls.
    Disenfranchisement
    Not all U.S. residents of legal age are eligible to vote in U.S. elections. Yet many of them do vote in elections
    illegally and here's how.
    Under the U.S. Constitution, disenfranchisement of citizens convicted of crimes, especially federal crimes or
    felonies, is legal and just punishment for the crimes committed. It's a highly just and practical punishment in a
    country governed of, by and for the people via the election process, preventing criminals from having equal access
    to determine the future of a nation, along with decent law-abiding citizens.
    However, it is left up to each state to determine which crimes justify disenfranchisement and whether or not that
    loss of voting rights will be permanent or temporary, until the sentence is served. As a result, we do have convicted felons voting in elections today.
    The current felon count is estimated at 6 million, 38% of whom are black and 20% of whom are Hispanic. Barack
    Obama and nearly all democrat politicians support returning all voting rights to convicted felons. Some
    republicans like Rick Santorum, have also fought to reinstate voting rights for felons.
    In Richardson v. Ramirez (1974), the United States Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of felon
    disenfranchisement statutes, finding that the practice did not deny equal protection to disenfranchised voters.
    Except for Maine and Vermont, every state prohibits felons from voting while in prison.
    As of 2010, only Kentucky and Virginia continued to impose a lifelong denial of the right to vote to all citizens
    with a felony record, absent some extraordinary intervention by the Governor or state legislature.
    Since criminals will vote, law-abiding citizens MUST vote.
    Even without amnesty, millions of illegal aliens will vote in this election. If you live in a state that does not require
    any proof of legal citizenship or form of ID to vote, illegals will vote in your state. If your state issues drivers
    licenses to illegal aliens, illegals able to prove residency in your voting district and show proof of ID via their
    driver's license will vote in your state.
    Because illegal aliens will vote, legal U.S. Citizens MUST vote!
    Because DEAD people vote democrat in every election, LIVE Americans MUST vote too!
    The Lies People Buy
    Since felons, illegal aliens, dead people and dual residency voters WILL vote in the election, who is the target of
    all efforts to keep voters at home or focused on third party fantasies on Election Day? YOU ARE!
    People seeking to vote themselves more wealth redistribution WILL vote, and so will millions of illegal aliens,
    felons and dead people. People with dual residency will vote in more than one district, and all of them have been
    trained to do so by the Democratic National Committee and their community organizing surrogates, in direct
    violation of all existing U.S. Election laws.
    In 1982, the Republican National Committee settled a law suit filed by the Democrat Party by signing a consent
    decree agreeing to never challenge voter fraud in any "minority" districts, where 99% of all voter fraud takes place
    in the country. So, in "voter fraud districts," voters of all illegal types can do whatever they want with total impunity. (NOTE: The RNC consent decree only applies to the RNC, the "national committee." Individual state Republican Parties can and must challenge election fraud within their own state election districts. All election rules are set and enforced by the state party.)
    All current efforts to convince American voters to stay home or vote 3rd party in protest are aimed at YOU, the pro-American voter, the only people standing in opposition to Obama & Co. - Obama supporters are NOT the subject target of all efforts to demoralize voters. YOU ARE! That's why every American MUST ignore these lies and VOTE!
    Which Elections are Important?
    The last election is over and the next election is two years away. That alone makes THIS election the most important election.
    Only the votes that are cast can count. Only votes cast wisely can have a positive impact. As a general rule, the
    people have it backwards today. The true priority importance of elections is as follows...
    Local and State level elections are critical. The idea that there is no difference between Republican and Democrat is largely true at the federal level. But at the state level, nothing could be further from the truth. In terms of economics, peace, freedom and morally sound states, the top 10 best run states in the country are all run by Republicans, and the worst states in the country are all run by Democrats. Federal policies only affect us locally when local politicians are as bad as the federal politicians. (READ Balance of Powers)
    1: The local primary is the most important federal election of all. Bottom up government begins at the primaries.
    Who we have to choose from in a general election is decided at the primary earlier in the year. People complain that they only have people to vote against in the general election. But this is only true because voter turnout is lowest in the primaries. Further, because many states have open primaries, allowing the political enemy to cross party lines in the primary and help select our candidates for the general election. CLOSE THE PRIMARIES!
    2: Second to the primaries is the mid-term election, wherein the balance of congressional power can shift towards or away from the Executive Branch. When the vast majority of Americans agree with the direction of the country, voter turnout in the mid-terms is generally and reasonably low. But when over 70% of the country believes the country is headed in the wrong direction, it is critical to take away all congressional support from the Executive Branch in the mid-term election. Today, House Republicans have refused to impeach the most impeachable Executive Branch in history because they don't currently control the Senate which must hold the impeachment trial.
    The people will have ONE opportunity to change that dynamic next month. They MUST hold the House and take
    the Senate.
    3: The presidential election is actually the least important in any Constitutional Republic wherein the Executive
    Branch has the most limited federal authority. Only when congress and the judiciary fail to uphold their oaths of
    obligation can the Executive Branch behave like a dictatorship. The people get to decide who is in congress and
    congress holds the broadest federal authority under the U.S. Constitution, not the president or the judiciary.
    The people have it backwards. Traditionally, the presidential election gets the best voter turnout, mid-terms trail and primaries have the lowest voter turnout. This must change immediately! Because everyone who wants to destroy America will vote, regardless of their eligibility, EVERY TRUE AMERICAN MUST VOTE in order to counter that corruption in the election systems.
    Making Sure Every American Vote is Counted
    Massive voter fraud was reported to Congress in the 2012 election cycle and members of Congress were unable to do anything with the evidence as a result of the 1982 consent decree prohibiting the Republican Party from contesting election fraud in "minority" districts. Meanwhile, evidence of disenfranchisement of the Military vote also went unchallenged by Congress. So, pro-American change is solely up to AMERICAN voters.
    The only way Americans can shift the balance of power in their own direction peacefully is to show up in massive
    numbers, overwhelming all of the anti-American voters and election fraud. American voters must vote. They must
    also volunteer to poll watch and be the checks and balances to assure honest elections in their own districts. The
    people must challenge what the RNC long ago agreed not to challenge, "minority bloc voter fraud."
    The 2014 mid-term election is likely the very last chance Americans will have to overwhelm their enemies at the
    polls, moving the nation away from the global leftist assault on freedom and liberty and towards a continued march
    back to American principles and values. People have been asking for six years now - "what can we do?" YOU CAN VOTE! You can make sure that your vote isn't wasted on candidates who can't possibly win races. You can make sure that both chambers of the federal legislature are stripped away from Barack Hussein Obama and his merry band of Marxists. You can make sure that the most impeachable administration in U.S. history is impeached!
    That, you can do! People, who won't do at least that, will never stand up to this criminal cabal anywhere else by any other means. Believe it! YOU are the force behind everything! YOU are vital to everything we do!

    Christians May Be Unwittingly Hastening America’s Transformation

    Susan Calloway KnowlesOctober 11, 2014

    image source flickr

    It’s a bold statement to make that Christians may be unwittingly hastening America’s transformation but it needs to be said.
    Most Christians would be shocked to think that they had anything to do with negatively impacting the country that they love so much and have, in many cases, even fought to protect.
    However, it needs to be discussed because America as we know it is being changed beyond recognition on a daily basis.
    As state primaries occur and as the 2016 elections draw near, it is high time that Christians recognize their invaluable potential in changing the course of our country.
    For far too long now, many Christians have chosen to stay home instead of getting out to vote in national, state, and local elections. The reasons vary for their apathy, but commonly there are two factors which keep Christians home.
    Either Christians believe that there is no one worth electing because the candidate does not hold their same Biblical beliefs or Christians wonder if they, pursuant to Biblical principles, should even vote at all.
    While I am not a Biblical scholar, I know one thing for certain and that is the Bible is not filled with a lot of indifference or the absence of actions taken by Christians.
    David didn’t slay Goliath by staying home. Joshua didn’t bring down the walls of Jericho by refusing to obey God’s direction to join in the battle.
    Certainly, Christ didn’t raise Lazarus from the dead by choosing not to travel to Bethany. Christ was anything but apathetic. He stood for truth and continued to speak out until the day He was crucified. He was and is a model for Christians to follow.
    image source flickr

    Christians have many modern day battles that call for them to respond.
    Every day in the news there are stories about Planned Parenthood and their continuing efforts to abort unborn children.
    Christians can effectuate positive change in this area by opposing congressional, presidential, or even state and local candidates who are in favor of abortion.
    By not voting, Christians are tacitly showing their approval or at least not voicing their opposition to this highly controversial issue.
    Additionally, problems involving the education of Christian children are at the core of Biblical principles and need the support of Christians everywhere.
    Issues regarding how children are raised and the principles they are taught are at the forefront of importance to most parents or guardians.
    Only parents or guardians should determine what is ultimately appropriate for their children to learn or eat in school, not the government.
    image source flickr

    Parents or guardians need to attend local school board meetings, extracurricular school activities, and other important school meetings concerning their children to ensure that moral principles are being taught.
    Christians standing up and speaking out in local school districts is a reminder to government that parents, not government, are ultimately in charge of their children’s education.
    Parents may also have to consider changing school districts, enrolling their child into charter schools, searching for faith-based programs, or looking at the benefits of homeschooling in order to remain in control.
    Recently, it was discovered, that while spending less toward each child’s education, charter schools, produce far better educational results than do traditional public schools. Charter schools, typically do not get extensive funding that traditional public schools receive from the federal government. What charter schools do receive, however, appears to be used more efficiently.
    In addition, because charter schools are not heavily funded by the government, they appear far more receptive to parent decision-making in their programs.
    You may recall earlier this year, that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, moved to prevent three charter schools from using public space. His actions caused some charter schools to close. His unilateral decision, took the issue out of the hands of parents and placed it solely in the hands of government.
    De Blasio only began to backtrack on his decision when those who had helped him get elected, began to voice their displeasure because their children attended the very charter schools he closed.
    Had proponents not raised concerns, de Blasio’s plan to rid New York City of charter schools may have succeeded, leaving parents with one less excellent choice.
    To paraphrase, Christians are the salt of the earth and the light of the world, according to Matthew 5:13-14. Remaining complacent, when it comes to the important issues in this country that impact our children and our constitutional rights, surely is not what God envisioned for Christians when He said those words.
    https://www.flickr.com/photos/stuart_spivack

    Freedom of choice allows all of us to continue to shape this country and this world. This does not mean taking away the rights of others in the process. What it does mean, however, and what history has shown us is that we are obligated to be preservers of the truth and freedom until the very end.
    Christians may hold the key to stopping or at least slowing the transformation of this country into an unrecognizable nation. Taking no action guarantees that we will continue to see our constitutional rights eroded and our right to speak out as Christians eventually suppressed.
    Choose this election season to make a difference for yourself, your children, and others! Get out and vote!

    In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the
    University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the
    Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always
    temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
    form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until
    the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous
    gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority
    always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from
    the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally
    collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a
    dictatorship."


    "The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the
    beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200
    years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:


    From bondage to spiritual faith;
    From spiritual faith to great courage;
    From courage to liberty;
    From liberty to abundance;
    From abundance to complacency;
    From complacency to apathy;
    From apathy to dependence;
    From dependence back into bondage."
    The Obituary follows:



    Born 1776, Died 2016
    It doesn't hurt to read this several times.
    Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in
    St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning
    the last Presidential election:


    Number of States won by: Obama: 19 Romney: 29
    Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 Romney: 2,427,000
    Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million Romney: 143 million
    Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:


    Obama: 13.2 Romney: 2.1

    Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory
    Romney won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.


    Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low
    income tenements and living off various forms of government
    welfare..."


    Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the
    "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of
    democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population
    already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase..



    If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million
    criminal invaders called illegal’s - and they vote - then we can say
    goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years
    .


    If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.

    If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how
    much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our
    freedom..





    We are supposed to have a "Republic", guess we can't keep it. Wake up America, vote them all out!!!! Collectivly these politicians are working to destroy our Country any way then can...

    In our democracy the Electoral College is obsolete; that is a position I've held for 30 or more years. I feel it gives larger states an advantage for one reason, and I think that Professor Olson's findings lend credibility to that.

    If a voting place is set up with materials that are almost exclusively in a language other than English chances are they are engaged in voter fraud. By law, only US citizens can vote in Federal elections.


    English is STILL a requirement for citizenship with some exception for people 50 and older that have lived here 20 years. So, if they are in their 20's, 30's and 40's and they no hablo inglese, their vote should be contested at the poll. JMO


    English Language Exemptions

    You Are Exempt From The English Language Requirement, But Are Still Required To Take The Civics Test If You Are:

    • Age 50 or older at the time of filing for naturalization and have lived as a permanent resident (green card holder) in the United States for 20 years (commonly referred to as the “50/20” exception).
      OR
    • Age 55 or older at the time of filing for naturalization and have lived as a permanent resident in the United States for 15 years (commonly referred to as the “55/15” exception).

    Note:

    • Even if you qualify for the “50/20” or “55/15” English language exceptions listed above, you must still take the civics test.
    • You may be permitted to take the civics test in your native language, but only if your understanding of spoken English is insufficient to conduct a valid examination in English.
    • If you take the test in your native language, you must bring an interpreter with you to your interview.
    • Your interpreter must be fluent in both English and your native language.
    • If you are age 65 or older and have been a permanent resident for at least 20 years at the time of filing for naturalization, you will be given special consideration regarding the civics requirement.

    The Value of Citizenship

    The United States has a long history of welcoming immigrants from all parts of the world. America values the contributions of immigrants who continue to enrich this country and preserve its legacy as a land of freedom and opportunity.
    Deciding to become a U.S. citizen is one of the most important decisions in an individual’s life. If you decide to apply to become a U.S. citizen, you will be showing your commitment to the United States and your loyalty to its Constitution. In return, you are rewarded with all the rights and privileges that are part of U.S. citizenship

    What Are the Benefits and
    Responsibilities of Citizenship?
    Benefits


    The Constitution and laws of the United
    States give many rights to both citizens
    and non-citizens living in the United
    States.

    However, some rights are only for
    citizens, such as:



    Benefits
    The Constitution and laws of the United
    States give many rights to both citizens
    and non-citizens living in the United
    States. However, some rights are only for
    citizens, such as:


    • Voting. Only U.S. citizens can vote
    in Federal elections. Most States
    also restrict the right to vote, in most
    elections, to U.S. citizens.


    • Bringing family members to the
    United States. Citizens generally
    get priority when petitioning to bring
    family members permanently to this
    country.


    • Obtaining citizenship for children
    born abroad. In most cases, a child
    born abroad to a U.S. citizen is
    automatically a U.S. citizen.


    • Traveling with a U.S. passport.
    A U.S. passport allows you to get
    assistance from the U.S. government
    when overseas.


    • Becoming eligible for Federal jobs.
    Most jobs with government agencies
    require U.S. citizenship.


    • Becoming an elected official. Many
    elected offices in this country require
    U.S. citizenship.


    • Showing your patriotism. In addition,
    becoming a U.S. citizen is a way to
    demonstrate your commitment to your
    new country.


    The above list does not include all the
    benefits of citizenship, only some
    of the more important ones.

    Responsibilities


    To become a U.S. citizen you must take
    the Oath of Allegiance. The oath includes
    several promises you make when
    you become a U.S. citizen, including
    promises to:


    • Give up all prior allegiance to any other
    nation or sovereignty;


    • Swear allegiance to the United States;


    Support and defend the Constitution
    and the laws of the United States; and


    • Serve the country when required.


    U.S. citizens have many responsibilities
    other than the ones mentioned in the
    Oath. Citizens have a responsibility
    to participate in the political
    process by registering and voting in
    elections. Serving on a jury is another
    responsibility of citizenship. Finally,
    America becomes stronger when all of
    its citizens respect the different opinions,
    cultures, ethnic groups, and religions
    found in this country. Tolerance for
    differences is also a responsibility of
    citizenship.


    When you decide to become a U.S.
    citizen, you should be willing to fulfill
    the responsibilities of citizenship. We
    hope you will honor and respect the
    freedoms and opportunities citizenship
    gives you. At the same time, we hope
    you become an active member of your
    community. It is by participating in your
    community that you truly become
    an American

    Think about Mexico with the 50 consulates running around passing out dual citizenship documents for the children of it's illegal citizens. Then paying for "their" people to stay here and and demanding US citizenship for them. Will these Mexican nationals give up their allegiance to Mexico or will they lie if they get the chance.

    So if they are there to vote and they don't speak English, they are committing a felony. When you see Vota Aqui, it may be time to file objections before the illegal votes are even counted.
