Obama’s winning strategy 2012: “Cumulative voting”

This. Is. Insane.

From the AP:

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. – Arthur Furano voted early — five days before Election Day. And he voted often, flipping the lever six times for his favorite candidate. Furano cast multiple votes on the instructions of a federal judge and the U.S. Department of Justice as part of a new election system crafted to help boost Hispanic representation.

Ah, the DOJ.  Obama best bud Eric Holder, doing his best to ensure liberalism never dies since it can’t win at the ballot box once it’s exposed for the lie that it is.

Voters in Port Chester, 25 miles northeast of New York City, are electing village trustees for the first time since the federal government alleged in 2006 that the existing election system was unfair. The election ends Tuesday and results are expected late Tuesday.

The existing election system=voting *one* time.  How antiquated, right?

Although the village of about 30,000 residents is nearly half Hispanic, no Latino had ever been elected to any of the six trustee seats, which until now were chosen in a conventional at-large election. Most voters were white, and white candidates always won.

Federal Judge Stephen Robinson said that violated the  Voting Rights Act, and he approved a remedy suggested by village officials: a system called cumulative voting, in which residents get six votes each to apportion as they wish among the candidates. He rejected a government proposal to break the village into six districts, including one that took in heavily Hispanic areas.

Erick Erickson from Redstate says impeachment is the only option for said judge.  I agree.  He writes:

The federal government requested a solution to divide up the municipality into six voting districts so that voters could vote in their local neighborhood, including areas of high hispanic population. This is the American way of handling the solution and is familiar to most people living in the Southern United States.

Judge Robinson, however, went with the European cumulative voting system that gives people the right to vote six times. He overstepped his bounds to impose a solution that not even Barack Obama’s Justice Department wanted

Until, of course, they realized the potential: why bother registering fake and dead voters if we all vote six times?!

  2. Google everything you can think of about Earths carrying Capacity , Overpopulation Population Control , Bill gates Population Control youtube , this is what they are really doing with all the behind doors policy making , they are going to limit our access to resources and in turn lower life expectancy , together with higher abortion rates they are trying to curb population growth , thats their fear and why they are going against the public on everything that supply-side economics and prosperity is all about , because the environmentalist Marxists are pushing them to think the earth is at its end carrying capacity in all things human .

  3. If this is the Mindset of Government then the Supply-Side Free Market Fundamental is lost and no one should trust their Investments in the Stock market until we see a shift in Philosophy or some debate on this Topic of Overpopulation and what it means .

  4. Sadly, this ‘fictitious voting’ could spread throughout America at the
    state level if it continues unabated, not that it would matter in
    the grand scheme of things anyway.

    A wise man said: “Forget the politicians, the politicians are only
    there to give you the illusion that you have ‘FREEDOM OF CHOICE’, you
    have no choice, the elite own this place & they own you! They own the
    media that tells you what to think and buy, they own all of the
    important real-estate & they have the judges in their back pockets,
    Uh, there is a BIG CLUB & YOU AND I ARE NOT IN THE BIG
    CLUB”

  6. Nothing surprising here. Sensible citizens have said for years that the best way to handle lying liberal idiots in both parties was to vote ’em out! I’ve seen this coming for decades. It’s unfair, unreasonable and highly illegal, because it’s unconstitutional! But what can we do now? The corrupt crooks are running and ruining everything. It’s gotten to where almost every liberal judge’s decision ends up in the Supreme Court, and once the Supremes are mostly liberal, THEN what? Time for a revolution!

  7. FOR GOD’S SAKE WILL SOMEONE ACTUALLY STAND TOGETHER IN A GROUP AND IMPEACH THESE RIGHTS USURPERS THAT WE HAVE AS A POPULATION ELECTED ???
    wHAT IS SO SCAREY IS THAT SO MANY DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THIS COUNTRY HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY POLITICAL TERRIOST THAT HAVE GOTTEN THEMSELVES ELECTED OR APPOINTED BY THE TRASH THAT HAS BEEN ELECTED.

    WILL THERE BE COMPLETED AND SATISFACTORY IMPEACHMENTS, PLURAL, OR WILL IT TAKE ANOTHER REVOLT??

    SOMETHING HAD BETTER BE DONE FAST AS THE GOVERNMENT IS FAST CUTTING OFF OUR OPTIONS.

  8. Oh.my.gosh. One of our most fundamental rights as American citizens, voting, is tampered with in order to level the playing field? This is one of the scariest things I’ve seen in awhile…

    • Ain’t it? I’m still in awe. And I thought it telling that the fellow who voted six times felt uncomfortable with it as well, though his discomfort didn’t prevent his extra votes.

  9. The point, sadly, is that we “all” don’t get to vote six times, only those likely to vote dem. Impeachment is the answer. For the judge AND for BO.

    • Agreed Fuzzy. Maybe we should all register as Democrats in order to get the six votes. Though someone might “check under our skirts” to make sure we’re really who we say we are…
