Barack Obama last month filed a lawsuit to restrict voting of active duty military men and women. If successful, the right of service members to vote early will be taken away. (please sign petition below)
The article by Mike Flynn of Breitbart currently shows 85,846 Facebook recommends and over 1,000 Twitter retweets. Americans are clearly outraged by the shamelessness of Obama’s actions in this regard. Governor Romney issued the following press release today to further expose Mr. Obama’s impudence:
Mitt Romney today made the following statement on early voting privileges for military servicemen and women in Ohio:
“President Obama’s lawsuit claiming it is unconstitutional for Ohio to allow servicemen and women extended early voting privileges during the state’s early voting period is an outrage. The brave men and women of our military make tremendous sacrifices to protect and defend our freedoms, and we should do everything we can to protect their fundamental right to vote. I stand with the fifteen military groups that are defending the rights of military voters, and if I’m entrusted to be the commander-in-chief, I’ll work to protect the voting rights of our military, not undermine them.”
Mike Flynn makes the following points in his post two days ago:
I think it’s unconscionable that we as a nation wouldn’t make it as easy as possible for members of the military to vote. They arguably have more right to vote than the rest of us, since it is their service and sacrifice that ensures we have the right to vote in the first place.
If anyone proposes legislation to combat voter fraud, Democrats will loudly scream that the proposal could “disenfranchise” some voter, somewhere. We must ensure, they argue, that voting is easy and accessible to every single voter. Every voter, that is, except the men and women of our military.
Make no mistake, the Democrat lawsuit is intended to disenfranchise some unknown number of military voters. The judge should reject it with prejudice.
Please support our troops by signing this petition to ensure every vote by every woman and man in uniform is counted in November. We will not allow Obama to restrict the rights of those who preserve ours!
