    Obama: Maybe it’s time for mandatory voting

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 7:25 am

    Obama wants to make voting mandatory. What’s next will someone from the DNC fill out the ballot for us too. His excuse is that other countries do it and it would keep the billionaires from having too much influence. Is it easier to vote when you’re a billionaire or something? Voting has nothing to do with campaign contributions, just ask Hillary, she’s an expert on billionaires.

    The president whose major policy achievement is mandatory health insurance thinks maybe voting should be mandatory, too.

    Asked how to offset the influence of big money in politics, President Barack Obama suggested it’s time to make voting a requirement.

    “Other countries have mandatory voting,” Obama said Wednesday in Cleveland, where he spoke about the importance of middle class economics, and was asked about the issue during a town hall.

    “It would be transformative if everybody voted — that would counteract money more than anything,” he said, adding it was the first time he had shared the idea publicly.

    The clout of millionaires and billionaires in campaign funding has been enormous, and many claim the uber wealthy have undue leverage in politics.

    “The people who tend not to vote are young, they’re lower income, they’re skewed more heavily towards immigrant groups and minority groups,” Obama said. “There’s a reason why some folks try to keep them away from the polls.”

    Voting is a right, not to be mandated. All this would do is get more uninformed, clueless people to vote. If you don’t give a crap about your country enough to vote, you don’t deserve to have a voice in the matter, and it’s not up to Obama to force them to care.
