    when you pay as much as I do you might have the standing to say that. Right now I suspect I pay more in a quarter than you pay in a decade

    I'm so proud of you, but you could pay a little more and you probably will end up paying more.

    I suspect you will never make it to that point. I will pay more because each year I increase my income by 100K or so

    Nope, but it does include the guy who has never worked and just collects a government check. I love how you keep trying to redirect the intention.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Merely seeking to clarify overly broad and vague statements. It's been like pulling teeth. If you don't want so many questions, don't be so vague and be more specific.

    What about the poor folks that ARE working 40+ hours a week just to get by? Screw them? Too bad they are not up to the right income level? Listen to yourself right now! You are suggesting that the poor should not be able to vote in the USA! Just to suggest or think such a thing is Anti-Americanism.

    Freebie nonsense? You consider WIC, foodstamps and welfare nonsense? These programs save babies and children. Do you wish to live in a land that would rather starve babies then help their fellow mankind? Where is your heart?

    Do you know that the majority in this country live pay check to pay check and that all it would take is a lay off or terminal illness to put them on this "freebie" programs that you call nonsense? Wake-Up Dude!

    Why not? This is silly. Where does it end? How about only letting those IN gov. vote on who gets elected for another term? Honestly this is silly.

    Again, I'm proud of you, but you can pay a little more and you will pay more not just because of your income increase.

    Actually...the rich can't exist without the poor.

    Kali...it wouldn't end. The "decider" (had to throw in a Bush term) or whoever defines "poor" also has the power to raise the bar...or create a new criteria to exclude others from the political process.

    I keep looking at the calendar expecting it to say April 1st and someone to shout "April Fools." I cannot believe anyone would favor denying the right to vote to a person just because of poverty. It's un-American.
