Seriously: isn't it time to do something about the illegal alien vote?

As I brought up below, there is a massive voter fraud being perpetrated by illegal aliens and the democrats.

From the Washington Post article entitled: Could non-citizens decide the November election? (dated October 24, 2014)
Our data comes from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES). Its large number of observations (32,800 in 2008 and 55,400 in 2010) provide sufficient samples of the non-immigrant sub-population, with 339 non-citizen respondents in 2008 and 489 in 2010. For the 2008 CCES, we also attempted to match respondents to voter files so that we could verify whether they actually voted.
How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.

Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.

From the study itself
•First use of representative sample to measure non-citizen voting in USA.
•Some non-citizens cast votes in U.S. elections despite legal bans.
•Non-citizens favor Democratic candidates over Republican candidates.
•Non-citizen voting likely changed 2008 outcomes including Electoral College votes and the composition of Congress.
•Voter photo-identification rules have limited effect on non-citizen participation.
Of course, whenever there's a system that begs to be abused, it will be abused. Our bizarre and arcane system that does not require absolute proof of citizenship to register results in millions of illegals registering to vote.


Because there's no legal reason they shouldn't do so: that is, there are no negative consequences if they do register, which dovetails with the lack of negative consequences for even being an illegal alien.

The solution is simple.

Congress picks a date where every registered voter must reregister showing proof of citizenship.

Effective that date, you have 90 days to reregister providing proof of citizenship.

We end on-line voter registration and add a proof of citizenship requirement to motor voter.

At the end of that time period, if you have not provided proof of citizenship, you are disqualified from voting.

Any idiotic laws such as that promulgated in California that allows illegals to vote would simply be ignored.

Now, the democrats would flip at such a requirement.  After all, your attention is brought to these bullet points from the study:
•Non-citizens favor Democratic candidates over Republican candidates.
•Non-citizen voting likely changed 2008 outcomes including Electoral College votes and the composition of Congress.
These are the ONLY reasons that democrats concern themselves about illegals and why they do all they can to keep them in this country while they wiz on our immigration laws.

But this idea would result in a scrub of the current voter roles, to eliminate many of the dead, many of the illegal, and many of the fraudulent.

And then from that point forward, no one may register to vote without proof of citizenship being presented at the time.

The alternative is to do nothing.  And while the GOP has been painfully afraid of the obligatory name-calling that would follow; primarily, the old democrat standby of claiming "racism," so they can keep their illegal alien vote, I defer to Dr. King on the subject:
“Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.”
At some point, the cowardly GOP has to stand up and grow a pair.  This issue NEEDS to be addressed or pretty soon there won't BE a GOP.
