Frank Gaffney: More People Voting Means ‘The End Of America As We Know It’
Frank Gaffney, a deputy defense secretary in the Reagan administration, says registering more people to vote promotes “creeping socialism.” Gaffney is upset that the Affordable Care Act website asks users if they’d like to register to vote.
The voter registration question is actually mandated by federal law. “The National Voter Registration Act of 1993, also known as ‘Motor Voter,’ requires public agencies that provide public assistance to offer voter registration opportunities,” Scott Keyes points out. “Nowhere are citizens told who to vote for, which party to register for, or even that they have to register at all.”
But Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy said that registering more people to vote is “promoting creeping socialism” and voter fraud. By registering more “low-income voters,” Gaffney warns, “expect a permanent majority demanding government hand-outs—and the end of America as we have known it.”
That’s right, Gaffney thinks it is anti-American and wrong that low-income people might exercise their right to vote.
