Voting for Dummies

Posted on April 4, 2011


Aside from the fact that the whole notion that illegal aliens should have even theoretical representation in any election, local or otherwise – this article points up, through an admission of the proponents, that Latinos don’t participate in voting like other ethnicities do.   How many times have I stated that the whining Karl Roves and the Jeb Bushes and other assorted RINOs have their heads up the poop shoot when they claim that Latino voting is the be all and end all for the GOP?  OK, I’ll say it one more time – they have their heads up the out hole.

So, therefore – because of the fact that they don’t give a rat’s ass about voting – we should adjust the ratio of voters in a given locality so that the non-voters can have more ‘fair’ reputation.    World Trade Federation!!!!!  I’d say this was an April Fools goof, but evidently they are serious and so is the Obama ‘Justice’ (Read – Social Justice) Department.  The Voters Right’s Act is – as is the Constitution, a rubber band that can be stretched to fit around any scheme idiotic and devious enough to steal your birthright as a citizen.  Si Se Puede.

In a move that some are saying could provide illegal immigrants with a disproportionate amount of representation in Yakima, Washington, immigrant rights activists are suing the city in an attempt to re-jigger the city’s current voting procedures.

Quietly last week, immigration lawyer Tim Schoenrock filed a law suit against Yakima on behalf of his client, former Democratic Party chairman, Tony Sandoval. The suit alleges that the city has been violating Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act (which prohibits any voting procedure that results in a discriminatory outcome), by allowing for an at-large City Council voting system that they believe discriminates against the Latino population – which votes at a lower rate than their white counterparts.

“The white population votes at a larger percentage than Latinos thereby over ruling every time the Latino group disagrees with the white vote,” explained Schoenrock.

With Latinos comprising 40 percent of the population, the hope is to have more Latino representation on the City Council, a problem critics say would not be an issue if Latinos actually ran for office more often.

To solve the perceived problem, Sandoval and Schoenrock want to see the city divided into seven equal districts, so that citizens will only be able to elect one council representative per district. This likely would be uncontroversial were there not an effort to ensure that illegals are counted in the districting process.

Since last year, the United States Department of Justice has been arguing that illegals in districts throughout the city of Irving, Texas can be counted to determine district lines. Under the one-man-one-vote principle, the pursuit has resulted in the dilution of actual citizen’s votes – for by drawing districts using total population rather than the population of citizens, the districts have been drawn unevenly.

In other words, if each district hypothetically were required to have 10,000 people (both illegal aliens and citizens) then a district with only 8,000 citizens would have the same number of council members as a district with 10,000 citizens.

With Justice squarely on the side of more representation for illegal aliens, it makes sense that the same concept will be at issue in Yakima – with its reputedly high illegal population.

According to former Justice lawyer, J. Christian Adams, the cases in Yakima and Irving will likely advise what is to come.

“This has enormous implications nationwide,” Adams told TheDC. “The central question is: will the voting power of American citizens be diluted because illegal aliens are given political representation. Eric Holder wants the answer to be yes.”
