The Left’s new chanting point (Angry Clown, Dog Gone) is Republicans would give guns to bad people but stop good people from voting which is wrong because voters aren’t killers.
No, voters aren’t DIRECT killers. They do it by proxy, electing Barak The Fearsome Terrorist Slayer and Al Franken, the 60th vote needed to pass ObamaCare That Will Have No Death Panels. I don’t think the direct-proxy distinction makes a difference.
Conservatives think bad people shouldn’t have guns and bad people shouldn’t vote, either. Liberals agree with less than half of that.
It’s not so much that libs don’t think bad people should vote. To put the most positive, pollyannaish possible spin on it as possible, it’s that their unexamined belief is that processing the maxiumum possible number of ballots on election day is the greatest possible good. Ensuring that those ballots are from real people, or people legally entitled to vote, or people who have only voted once, falls well below in the priority list. And that’s if you assume that there isn’t massive fraud, which I do not.
