    Re: Should the Poor not be allowed to vote

    Some folks seem to feel unless you are rich you should not be able to vote. Screw the poor, disabled, felons or anybody else that does not have money. Screw the rights of the folks! Only those deemed worthy should matter and get to vote. Sad state of affairs that people care more about their snooby messed up mindset than the given rights of the people!!!!!!!

    Do you libs honestly believe America would be better off if GE did not exist

    But see, the middle class and the wealthy are actually paying for the things they want out of their taxes. The poor, who pay no income taxes, aren't paying for a damn thing, they just want other people to fund what they want.

    There is a difference, it's sad that people don't recognize that.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    So in other words you want more and more of a corrupt society? Where the poor folks have no rights and those with the money control everything. Right.. That is the way this land of the free should work.

    I like Jamesrage's idea that if a tax does not affect you you don't have a say about it. If you aren't a top tax bracket income tax payer you shouldn't have a say about raising the rate. If you don't own firearms, you don't have a say in the Robinson-Pittman Act rates. Non-smoker-don't be voting on the taxes on smokes

    Yes, that GE. Just because you give a lot, doesn't mean you don't take what you haven't paid for.

    Also, what about those super cool banks who took a little bit of bailout money. What about them?

    Do you libs honestly believe America would be better off if GE did not exist
    Did I say that? Quote please.

    How about a society where poor folks work hard and get the hell out of poverty without trying to vote more freebie nonsense on themselves instead. You forget what the American Dream is. If you work hard enough, you can be successful. When can we expect these people to work and take responsibility for their own lives?

    To OP, christ all mighty...
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).
