From Illegal to Eligible

Hillary Clinton has laid out her game plan for winning back the White House for herself and her husband next year. She decided it will not be enough to rely on the 66 million people who voted twice for Barack Obama because many of those voters are disillusioned by the failure of the “hope and change” he promised. Since Hillary does not have the youthful exuberance that propelled Obama to his double victory, she plans to build a whole new electorate out of people who did not vote for Obama.

The people to whom she wants to give new voting rights include felons and non-citizens, along with anyone who cannot prove identity, citizenship, or residence within his voting precinct. Hillary gave lip service to the notion that “every citizen” should vote, but her Democratic Party allies are in court trying to stop every reasonable means of verifying a voter’s citizenship. That is no surprise because, according to a recent Rasmussen survey, 53% of Democrats believe that illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote.

Hillary is also planning to “go even further” than Obama on amnesty for illegal immigrants. Hillary said she would include all 11-plus million immigrants (not just Obama’s 5 million) and she would give them full citizenship with voting rights, not merely “legal status” with permission to work. The Census Bureau estimates that 22 million non-citizen adults, both legal and illegal, are living permanently in this country. That is almost 10 percent of our entire population. Hillary’s promise to give voting rights to “every citizen” may sound like a good idea, but the reality is that her scheme reaches much further than that, and the consequences could be disastrous in 2016. For the American election process to maintain its integrity, only those who have achieved the status of U.S. citizen should be allowed to vote.
