Theocracy in America and GOP voter fraud
Does America belong to Jesus? I don't think so. Nothing about America belonging to Jesus in the Constitution or in the Declaration of Independence. Heck, nothing about him at all in those documents. Nothing about Christianity or the bible either. Well, Pat Robertson, senior theocrat in chief of the religious right-wing for decades, believes that. In a gathering named, America for Jesus rally, he said, “I don’t care what the ACLU says or any atheists say. This nation belongs to Jesus, and we’re here today to reclaim his sovereignty."
I am one of those atheists he is talking about and I also a member of the ACLU. Now, while I will admit I have given money to the ACLU in part because of their support in ensuring that the government does not promote religion, I have also supported them for other issues. Such as their support for ending the harsh penalties of the drug war, among their support for freedom of speech. Even freedom of speech of nuts like Robertson.
Now, Robertson believes this supposed god is soverign. What would that mean if it was true? Well, it would mean we would be literally a Christian theocracy. The American people would not be sovereign, but this god. We would not choose our leaders, but this god. Indeed, theocrats like Robertson very often believe that our leaders, including the president, are chosen by this alleged god.
Is this god an American citizen, because only American citizens have the right to vote and I am pretty sure he isn't one.
Lastly, the Republican party of Florida paid millions to a voter registration group that has turned in multiple false registrations. Maybe 60,000 of them in fact. This is ironic because the Republican party is the one that is constantly saying we need to make it harder to vote. The firm is also known for illegally thrashing Democratic party registrations, which is of course a crime. If you do this work, you have to register everyone who is eligible. So maybe the Republican party is right, we have to look out for voter fraud, starting on their side.
