Voter participation…

leave a comment »

The Washington, D.C.-based Voter Participation Center is using large mailing lists from commercial and nonprofit organizations  to send voter registration forms  to people they believe have been underrepresented in the political process.

Read the mission from its website:  ” The mission of the VPC is to boost the civic engagement of unmarried women,  people of color and 18-29 year olds – the three demographic groups who comprise the Rising American Electorate.”

VPC admits it doesn’t know the  citizenship status of anyone it sends the forms to,  and is totally unconcerned about it.  It’s safe to say that a large number of illegal aliens and others not qualified to vote will receive the voter registration forms,  and their defense will be that they did not know they couldn’t vote,  and you can be sure that the Obama Department of Justice won’t prosecute any of them.

College education, or indoctrination?

The University of Minnesota is sponsoring  an ad campaign  designed to achieve racial justice by raising awareness of white privilege.   I hope someone produces a parody of it focusing on academic privilege.

If you got student loans to attend this institution,  you were robbed.
