The recent automatic voter registration of all driver's license holders in Oregon by the bureau-rats calling themselves Government, is on track to be most eagerly emulated by their execrable counterparts in Commiefornia:
Note that one must "affirmatively opt-out" in order to avoid being automatically registered.
Currently, if one fails or refuses to register, one remains essentially anonymous. Someone who is aloof, unconcerned, negligent, etc.
Now, one must be a conscientious, active refusenik in the eyes of the State, in order to avoid voter registration.
Pardon me, but I'm just cynical enough to believe that this move -- now about to envelop the most populous "state" (tax farm) in Amerika -- is about much more than just bolstering government "legitimacy" by pushing people towards participation in elections...as the title of this blog entry implies.
