The very worst system...

I don't do any poli-blogging over here, or anywhere else for that matter, but I an across something today that I have to comment on.

I followed a link over at Wizbang and came to Ben Hammersly's site. I liked the page design and the content of the post Kevin linked. So, I clicked home and browsed the rest of the site. Some interesting stuff...

I came to a post titled The very worst system, apart from all the others. Reading down through it was just regular old bullshit stuff... then came at the end...

...The other point to ponder is a mischievous one: given the US’s unique role on the international stage, is it morally right for its election to be decided, or even participated in, only by its own citizens?
Now go down and read the comments from foreign nationals.

I don't care what your political views views are, or whether or not I agree with them, this is absolutely unacceptable! Our elections are to be decided by us and us alone. This is NOT a one world government. The United States is a sovereign nation, governed by the consent of it's own citizens, not the citizens of the world. They have no right to participate in our electoral processes, moral or otherwise.

I hope that some of you poli-bloggers take up this particular issue, I would like to hear your thoughts and opinions on it.

Go read the post and make sure you take in the commentary also.

LOL - I commented over on Harvey's link to you and the story. I was in a rush at the time - can one be rushed and verbose at the same time? Anyhow, you can wander on over an have a look if you like. Thanks for the heads up on the story!

Remember - they're just jealous.

Ah, the transnationalists are at it again. They've conveniently forgotten the meaning of the word, "sovereignty".

Legally, they can come vote in our elections after they apply for, and are granted, citizenship in the United States, which means that they get to forswear allegiance to any other state or potentate. Once they're brother and sister citizens, they can have a say in the way we do things.

The irony is that what they don't realize is that they're unconsciously trying to involve themselves in the very thing they damn us for: our republic.

JMHO, of course. :)
