Obama Campaign Creeps Pushing Voter Registration Through Facebook App

The get out of the vote effort by the Obama minions is at an unprecedented level - let's disregard the inherent fraud by liberal drones for the sake of this situation. The Obama campaign has created a Facebook app to tap into the social network's 1 billion users (maybe even foreign users?) so a user can check if they're registered to vote. Seemingly harmless, but we're talking about the most radical presidential campaign in American history. The real aim is the user's friends, which the campaign can specifically target.
Welcome to the new age. Winning an election now relies heavily on having a digital advantage, primarily the data that campaigns gather. And that's what the Obama campaign is after. When users use the app, they're granting Obama drones access to their basic information that a friend would see. Some of this can be valuable, especially if the user doesn't understand the privacy settings. But in this situation, it's actually the user's friends that get the spotlight.
This isn't the first time the Obama campaign has raised eyebrows. An iPhone and Android app released earlier in the year helped Obama supporters determine who in the neighborhood is a Democrat - and who isn't. Knowing the importance of this election to the Obama regime, it's beyond scary to know that non-Obama supporters were identified. The Chicago Political Machine doesn't exactly accept those who don't support their agenda.
But this is second, even third page news, which means the elite media won't cover it. When POLITICO wrote on this, they touted it rather than raising skepticism. They also said that the GOP had a similar tool. The big difference? The GOP app only lets users see if they're registered to vote. There's no creepy targeting of unsuspecting friends.
The Obama campaign has quite the extensive hit list. How they use it is something we're afraid to even discuss.
