There's a decent chance the 2016 presidential election will be about national security. If that's the case, recent spin by Democratic pundits may undercut former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's campaign before it has much of a chance to establish itself.

President Obama, speaking at the City Club of Cleveland Wednesday, was asked what he thought he could do about the issue of money in politics. And his answer -- for the short term, at least -- is to suggest that America make voting mandatory, as they do in Australia. He's wrong. Dead wrong.

Despite the fact that a majority of the American voting public opposes the privatizers, they are undeterred. To stop public opposition they've decided to stop public participation. Rather than try to change our minds, the privatizers simply opt to suppress our votes.
