De Blasio: Democrats Have a Democracy Problem

New York’s far-left progressive mayor told Face the Nation that “we have a democracy problem” and they do.

Democrats have a real and growing problem – a democracy problem. If they can’t get the uninformed masses to the polls, their ability to win elections will suffer.

Bill De Blasio spent the segment blaming Republicans for lower voter turnout as if a certain voter turnout is necessary to support the ongoing function of our nation. In truth, lower, more-informed turnout would be preferable to mandated 100% voting.

De Blasio voices support for Hillary Clinton’s proposals to make voter registration madatory at age 18 and require all states to offer 20 days of early voting.

How long until progressives take the next step and tie child tax credits or welfare payments to mandatory voting?

The Republican National Committee noted that Hillary’s home state does not currently have early voting and an RNC spokesman pointed out that “Her exploitation of this issue only underscores why voters find her dishonest and untrustworthy.”

Hillary Clinton is frantically pointing at Republicans as the root of the Democrat’s new voter turnout issue. In a Thursday speech at Texas Southern University, Hillary said that “Republicans are systematically and deliberately trying to stop millions of American citizens from voting. What part of democracy are they afraid of?”

Hillary’s question is one of desperation. This isn’t about what Republicans are afraid of – it’s what has Democrats in crisis mode. They are running an old, wealthy white candidate against a cadre of candidates of varying ages, ethnicities, genders and backgrounds.

Clinton looks like the epitome of the old, rich and white candidate the Democrats have demonized forever. Without Obama in the race in 2016, a large portion of the Democrat base may just stay home.

A democracy is not successful simply because a huge part of the population votes. It is successful when the largest percentage of informed and thoughtful voters participate.

As a final note, the United States is a Republic, not a Democracy – “but at this point, what difference does it make?”

NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — A press conference on Thursday, October 24, in the Big Apple will blow the lid off the “Marxist power couple” running for mayor of New York City. That’s how veteran journalist and event organizer Cliff Kincaid describes Bill de Blasio and his wife Chirlane McCray, who took their “honeymoon” in Cuba in violation of the law and are considered the frontrunners to occupy Gracie Mansion when the NYC mayoral election that takes place on November 5.

Kincaid says it is time that de Blasio’s plans to close down police surveillance of potential terrorists be examined in a public forum. “The city that suffered through the 9/11 terrorist attack needs to know what we have uncovered about this so-called ‘progressive’ candidate for mayor,” he said.

In addition to Kincaid, director of the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism and president of the public policy group America’s Survival, Inc., the speakers include:

  • Pamela Geller on Arab/Muslim terrorism, why Islamists support de Blasio, and what the political group “Muslims for de Blasio” wants from the candidate.
  • Tea Party leader Joe Connor on unanswered questions surrounding de Blasio’s role in the Clinton pardons of the FALN terrorists who claimed his father’s murder.
  • World-famous blogger Trevor Loudon on the “democratic socialism” that is coming to New York City if de Blasio wins the mayor’s race.

The event, open to the press and public, will be held in the Hotel Pennsylvania (across from Penn Station), at 401 7th Ave, New York, New York, 10001, in the Gold Ballroom, from12:30 – 3:00 pm.

In advance of the event, Kincaid’s group has posted a 84-page PowerPoint dossier on de Blasio’s controversial foreign connections, as well as a research paper on his wife’s involvement in a Marxist collective. They can be found at www.usasurvival.org. These topics will be discussed in detail at the October 24 conference in New York City.

De Blasio was considered just a run-of-the-mill liberal until the New York Times on September 23 ran a profile of the candidate, disclosing in a matter-of-fact manner his travels to Cuba and Nicaragua, involvement in a communist “solidarity” movement, and embrace of Islam as an emerging political force. Kincaid said his group of speakers will expand on this subject and disclose new and even more startling aspects of de Blasio’s career.
