This question is getting more and more relevant.
First we have ACORN putting the validity of our elections in question. No matter what ACORN or it's defenders (aka the Democratic party) say, ACORN's illegal registration activities have the very real potential to change an election. Look at the close races this year for the US Senate.
In a contest like what is going on in Minnesota with Norm Coleman and Al Franken, ACORN would only have to facilitate the illegal voting of 200 or 300 voters to change the election results in that state. Anyone that thinks this is unlikely needs to remember that some of the improperly registered voters have reached the thousands in some state. If ACORN were to misregister 20,000 people in Minnesota, not at all out of the range of possibility, only 1% of them would have to slip through and vote to possibly change the election.
Then there is Minnesota itself in which, against all statistical probability, election officials "found" 500 votes for Franken. See John Lott's blog here. If Al Franken manages to win Minnesota, there will never be a way to make his win appear legitimate.
Finally, we have this. The California Supreme Court is going to hear an appeal by gay rights activists to overturn proposition 8 that was voted on by the people of the state. Without discussing the merits of the law, this is an affront to democracy. This passage here sums up the arrogance of bringing the suit. (emphasis mine)
Opponents of the ban argue that voters improperly abrogated the judiciary's authority by stripping same-sex couples of the right to wed after the high court earlier ruled it was discriminatory to prohibit gay men and lesbians from marrying.
Government has no authority without consent of the people, this is what defines a democracy.
We see this type of thing in Michigan a lot from the libs. Fight the good fight for your cause but that's OK if you lose, just go to court to have the will of the voters overturned.
Further, it should be noted that conservatives lost on two propositions in Michigan this year. I have yet to hear any talk of suing to get the provisions overturned and I can promise if they do, I will be there to criticize them for it.
The irony here is no one can figure out why so many people sit on the sidelines and don't vote. While I will never quit voting, one could rightly wonder at times, what's the point?
