The Democrats are very worried about the 2010 and 2012 elections, so they're developing strategies which they believe will ensure their majority.
What's the plan? James Simpson at AmericanThinker.com writes that this month Democrats will propose legislation requiring universal voter registration.
John Fund warns in the video below that the legislation will corrupt state voter registrations, and allow illegal aliens to vote. Very convenient! Fund explains:
In January, Chuck Schumer and Barney Frank will propose universal voter registration. What is universal voter registration? It means all of the state laws on elections will be overridden by a federal mandate. The feds will tell the states: 'take everyone on every list of welfare that you have, take everyone on every list of unemployed you have, take everyone on every list of property owners, take everyone on every list of driver's license holders and register them to vote regardless of whether they want to be ...'
The problems with universal voter registration are numerous and obvious. Many states' lists include vast numbers of illegals, including some states which allow illegals to obtain drivers licenses; because many homeowners have more than one home, there will be duplicates; because so many people are on so many separate federal and state government agency lists, there will be duplicates; and because so many lists exist with little or no cross-checking capability, all of these duplicates are likely to go uncorrected. Add to this the fact that Dems hope to extend voting rights to felons, and the whole thing begins to look like a nationwide Democrat voter registration drive facilitated by taxpayers.
We need to watch for this bill by checking OpenCongress.com. Bills are sorted by date with the most recent legislation at the top of the list. We must fight this idea tooth and nail.

Wade Rathke of ACORN infamy is an advocate for universal voter registration. Reason enough to fight this legislation!
