White House Agency Takes Aim at Paper Ballots

My own NH Congressman Paul Hodes recently responded to citizen concerns about the EAC by saying "its existence can not undermine the constitutional power of the states to control elections."

Hodes doesn't get it. Neither do most people, from what I can see.

The White House is designing the voting systems that the states have to use.

It doesn't matter who serves on this Commission. It doesn't matter if they are Congressionally appointed either, as some would like to amend things. Their very existence, and the power of their programs, creates a fundamental power shift in our form of governance: from dispersed power of the states to centralized power of the federal government.

This poses a clear and present danger to the American Republic, by its very definition.

The implications of an American reality wherein the White House designs our voting systems are staggering.

I could spell out some of these, but will leave that for you to ponder right now.

Over the past couple of years, I have written ad nauseum on the EAC. Probably too much information for too many people, but most of these writings can be found here:
