    In researching corruption, the rule is FOLLOW THE MONEY. To find out what stinks in this case, just follow who is setting the stage for such a repeal and restriction of voting rights. The dots are very very easy to connect.
    so you think Hispanics and Blacks will always support the rich white dems who urge parasitic taxes etc?

    that Hispanics will want to remain owned by their dem massas and use "racism" to excuse social pathologies?

    I think it's more equitable to require community service for everyone who wants to, vote or be elected to public office.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    This is exactly what it is. It is a "slave, plebeian and citizen" type of governing like in Star Ship Troopers. Only real difference is it would not be necessary for citizenship, but without the right to vote or serve in office are you really a citizen anymore?

    All it takes is willpower.
    Not everyone wants to do it. Community service (for other than a crime) is nothing but indentured servitude or slavery with a nice name.

    what about people who are disabled due to no fault of their own? should they still lose the right to vote?

    what about folks who have been unemployed for only 6 months, should they also lose the right to vote?

    what are the ground-rules for your bigotry & hatred against the poor?

    its "politically correct" to want ALL Americans, regardless of income or their tax returns, to have the right to vote?
