Now that Biden has been installed as president through an election that was rife with voting irregularities, last-minute election law changes, blatant violations of existing law, and outright fraud, the Democrats are working hard to rig the system even further in their own favor.
Clearly, one of their main goals is to make sure that they never have to worry about the possibility of losing elections ever again.
To that end, Biden has recently signed yet another executive order. This one is especially farcical for the simple reason that it gives increased voting and voting registration rights to criminals who are either currently in prison or who are on probation.
If You Can’t Pass a Law, Sign an Executive Order
Allowing criminals—especially violent criminals—the right to vote has long been a major item on the Democratic wish list. However, such proposals may be framed in the rhetoric of expanding rights to people or including them in the democratic process. The truth is that these are all just naked power grabs.
Since Republicans have traditionally been the law-and-order party and Democrat-run cities like Seattle have descended into chaos and disfunction because of how their leadership coddles criminals, you don’t have to be a genius to figure out where criminals’ votes will go.
This is just a means to alter the voting demographics so that Democrats can further stack the political deck in their own favor—just as they have long been trying to do on the issue of illegal immigration.
In fact, there was an attempt as recently as March 2 to formally pass a law that would allow incarcerated people to vote. The bill failed in the House despite receiving the support of 97 Democrats.
But of course, it has long been the practice, firmly established by Obama and now continued by Biden, to simply sign executive orders to do whatever you please when the Congress does not or cannot support your agenda. Though this blatantly contravenes the intentions of the Founders, Democrats don’t care.
Biden, with a pen and piece of paper, can essentially rule as a dictator if it pleases him to.
The Epoch Times has reported on a fact sheet about the new executive order.
It states the following: “The order will direct the Attorney General to establish procedures to provide educational materials related to voter registration and voting, and to the extent practicable, to facilitate voter registration, for all eligible individuals in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.”
Prisoners and lawbreakers are stripped of voting rights for a reason. By violating some of society’s most important norms, they have shown contempt for society. It is only reasonable to deprive criminals of the right to participate politically in the society that they have violated.
But again, Democrats don’t care. For them, power is all that matters.
