His paranoia obscures his Latin. The word "register" does not come from the noun regis, it comes from the verb regesta, to record. One must also point out that US elections, for all their shortcomings, are among the most highly supervised in the world, although we have much to learn from our British cousins. Oh, and the word "poll" comes from an old French word meaning "head".
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
