There are a wide variety of reasons to conclude that the Obama Administration hates the military.
From Obama's moronic and idiotic trial balloon to force our Warriors to purchase their own health care insurance to take care of their wounds to this:
MILITARY VOTER PROTECTION PROJECT (mvpproject.org)Now, if Obama or the fringe left nutters he's surrounjded himself with gave a damn about the troops, he would have demanded that any state failing to meet the requirements of the MOVE Act extend their cutoff 20 days, to make sure EVERY vote from EVERY Service Member is counted.
WASHINGTON, D.C.-The Department of Justice has once again failed our military voters-this time in Illinois.
Last Friday, the Justice Department and the Illinois State Board of Elections filed a consent decree to remedy widespread violations of our service members' right to vote in Illinois. Not only does the proposed agreement fail to address violations in numerous counties, it provides no meaningful relief for thousands of military members in the State of Illinois.
The widespread nature of Illinois's failure to protect military voters is beyond dispute. According to State Board officials, at least 35 counties in the state failed to mail absentee ballots at least 45 days before the November election, as required by the Military and Overseas Vote Empowerment Act (MOVE Act). At least 6 of these
counties mailed absentee ballots more than two weeks after the September 18, 2010 deadline.
Unfortunately, the consent decree does little or nothing to remedy these clear violations of law. In a vast majority of the counties, the decree does nothing more than extend the deadline for postmarking absentee ballots from November 1, 2010 to November 2, 2010. In the 6 counties with the worst violations, the consent decree also extends the deadline for receiving absentee ballots by 1 to 3 days.
"We have no idea how the Department thinks that this decree enforces the law or protects military voters," said Eric Eversole, the Executive Director of the Military Voter Protection Project. "In 65 counties that complied with the law, military voters
in Illinois had nearly 60 days to receive and return their absentee ballots. However, if you are a service member that lived in a county that clearly violated the law, you received something far less. It doesn't make any sense."
While the consent decree was signed by the federal district court judge on Friday in Chicago, the Illinois Republican Party has indicated that it may ask the judge to re-open the case and ask for equal treatment of military voters throughout the state.
The Military Voter Protection Project is a project of the Vets for Freedom Educational Institute in partnership with Families United, both non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations. For more information about the organization and its mission, please visit www.mvpproject.org.
Yes... the list of reasons to detest our President is growing longer by the day.
