    Ok, those who "pay no taxes"* don't get to vote. Fine. Those who don't get to vote don't have to pay taxes. At all. Period. They get a refund every year for what they paid in sales tax, property tax, gasoline tax, utility taxes, and anything else they paid.

    Oh, wait... that would make YOUR tax bill go up as the lost money would have to be replaced from somewhere. Oh. My. God... we couldn't have that! No taxation without representation, ya know.

    *- An incorrect assumption to begin with, but I'll play along.

    Re: Should the Poor not be allowed to vote

    Removing the right to vote from tens of millions of Americans, gives the Federal government more power over the people.

    Why, would Conservatives want to give the Federal govt. more power over the people?

    This is very confusing.

    ....if you can be drafted, if govt. can have any power over you...than YOU should have power over the govt.

    they already do...it's called the earned income tax credit .
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    women can't be drafted, so women shouldn't get to vote
    old men can't be drafted, so old men shouldn't get to vote
    physically handicapped can't be drafted, so cripples shouldn't get to vote

    only able bodied males, age 18-25 are required to register with selective service. are they the only ones who should be allowed to vote?

    your logic fails at its core.

    you made a claim. please provide evidence for the claim so we know the claim is true and not simply baseless speculation.
