    States Weigh Letting Noncitizens Vote


    Are you willing to give up our Nations Sovereignty and History as a Melting pot, in favor of some Radical Liberal idea that is 100% Anti-American? It also means the end of the United States of America that millions fought and died for.
    Or are you willing to fight Peacefully of course to preserve our Nation?

    This is the most dangerous attack on our nation since Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.

    Allowing aliens legal or not to vote could lead to a situation not unlike the one that took place back in 1981 when a Cult tried to take over and control the Community of Antelope Oregon.

    They used legal citizens who were brain washed by Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh to register to vote so they could take over and allow them to make all the rules so their CULT could do as they wished.

    Is this a fear? HELL YES IT IS.

    There are places in this nation such as parts of Los Angeles where if this were to catch on Radicals like from the Racist group La Raza, and other radical groups like MEChA, and Aztlan will turn areas into Mexico which is their goal which will lead to us being run out.

    There are areas in many Cities populated by Muslims, Chinese, Korean, etc. and if allowed to do so they will return to separate but unequal, and this will I seriously fear lead to a Civil War and a BLOOD BATH.


    States Weigh Letting Noncitizens Vote - FoxNews.com
    PORTLAND, Maine -- Like his neighbors, Claude Rwaganje pays taxes on his income and taxes on his cars. His children have gone to Portland's public schools. He's interested in the workings of Maine's largest city, which he has called home for 13 years.

    There's one vital difference, though: Rwaganje isn't a U.S. citizen and isn't allowed to vote on those taxes or on school issues. That may soon change.

    Portland residents will vote Nov. 2 on a proposal to give legal residents who are not U.S. citizens the right to vote in local elections, joining places like San Francisco and Chicago that have already loosened the rules or are considering it.

    What an interesting post. I wasn't aware 'til I just Googled that Illinois allows noncitizens to vote in local School Board elections. Been on the books since 1998.

    It looks as though many states are looking to Illinois and a few other states and considering the same practice.

    Re: States Weigh Letting Noncitizens Vote

    So if citizens decide to give their non-citizen legal resident tax-paying neighbors the right to vote in local elections, that's something to be afraid of?

    Really?

    There are other countries that permit that sort of thing in certain localities, and the sky hasn't fallen there.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I do not think that a noncitizen should be able to choose the President of the United States. There's the camel...there's the tent.

    Re: States Weigh Letting Noncitizens Vote

    I don't either. I don't think a noncitizen should be allowed to vote in an election where a foreign policy issue could be decided, period.

    This is about local elections.

    Those only count when you agree with them.

    Also, "will of the people."

    Or, as Jon Stewart put it, limited government just means limited to the **** they want to do.

    Re: States Weigh Letting Noncitizens Vote

    Abdirizak Daud, 40, moved to Minneapolis 18 years ago before coming to Portland in 2006. He hasn't been able to find a job. Some of his nine children have attended Portland schools, and he'd like to have a say in who's looking over the school system and the city, he said.

    But between his limited English and the financial demands, Daud hasn't been able to become a citizen.
    I don't mind people who come here, the right way, to become gainfully employed, who better our society in some way and and who do *what* they're suppose to do eventually earning the right to vote (very reasonable to me).

    But people like *this* guy I quoted bug the **** out of me.

    He shouldn't have had 9 kids when he was: trying to get citizenship and trying to learn how to build a stable financial life.
    He is, in short, a stupid fool - and like many stupid fools - I truly don't believe he has *earned* the right to become a full citizen. . .and he shouldn't have a say over how *my* children are schooled and how *the* country runs.
    And after 18 years in ANY country if someone shows NO concern for integrating and at least learning the language (so they could get past some barriers to employment and citizenship) they should be given the cold shoulder.

    And to note I harbor no hypocrisy I'll point out that I feel this way concerning *citizens* who exhibit his SAME level of poor judgment - putting sexual urges and a lack of personal-concern before family-support and financial stability and *then* expect the taxpayers to cover their ever rising costs of family-care.

    They should *do their equal part* in the whole picture of things before they set forward expectations instead of just failing at *doing their equal part* and then scratch their head in disbelief that they haven't advanced any, yet - and ask for the government or for citizens to take the hit.
