New Bill Bans Dead People From Voting
“Fight fire with fire” is one of those sayings that never seemed to make sense before. But when you substitute the word “idiocy” for “fire” you have the perfect description of the recently introduced bill that requires a person to have a pulse in order to vote.
Maybe “idiocy” isn’t in fact, an accurate word. Perhaps “genius” is better, because Republican Congressman Brian Babin (R-Texas) has implemented a strategy to meet the absurdness of tactics used by the Left.
It may make sense to most people that voting is reserved for the Living. But just because something makes sense does not mean it will be heeded. So long as there is no formal law banning dead people from voting, there is no means to enforce this policy. One Congressman has taken that bull by the horns.
Congressman Babin, backed by eight other Representatives, recently introduced the You Must Be Alive to Vote Act.
This Bill specifically prevents any funds from the U.S. Departments of Transportation or Education, with the exception of those going toward law enforcement agency grants, from going to counties of any state that do not annually check their voter lists against the Social Security Administration’s most recent death records in order to purge them of any individuals found to be deceased.
This, in effect, will make it much harder for dead people to vote.
The absurdity of such measures is not lost on Babin. In an OAN interview, he acknowledged this while also noting that many counties do not take necessary steps to update voter registration lists.
This laziness leaves the door wide open for anyone to procure ballots in the name of deceased people. The multitude of sworn affidavits noting thousands of votes submitted by dead people in the recent elections highlights the need to put an end to this practice.
Babin insists this Bill is a nonpartisan one because it is in everyone’s interest to preserve the integrity of elections. This, many on the Right feel, is not a sentiment shared by the Left.
It is then the perfect opportunity for that belief to be proven wrong. If the Bill is supported by Democrat representatives it will prove that they, too, prioritize election integrity over assured victories for their Candidates.
Such an assurance would do much to bolster confidence in future elections, including the pending Georgia Senate runoffs that will determine the balance of power in our Senate.
