    Should the Poor not be allowed to vote

    Or should the top 10% not be allowed to vote, since their money influences all politics. I laugh at certain forum posters who say that the poor shouldnt be allowed to vote because they only vote for who is going to give them something...that is one of the most disgustingly disengenuous statements ever uttered on this foru...because the RICH vote for who is going to give them something and they PAY them millions to do it for them in lobbiests cash and gifts to superpacs...its hypocrisy to the ooomph degree.

    You should have added a third option: "Everyone should be allowed to vote."
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Only a monster would seek to deny human rights over political disagreements.

    Keep reading the thread then, because many will not see it that way.

    I think paraphrasing Heinlein, says it best.
    "Something that is free, has no value."

    I think everyone should have to earn the privilege of voting and running for public office.
    Not through taxes or money'd payments but through community service.
    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.

    I'm entirely fine saying the only people who can vote are those who pay income taxes. If you're not going to pay for government, you ought to have no say over it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Should the Poor not be allowed to vote

    This is a strange poll. I didn't vote in it. I wanted to vote, "Everyone, rich and poor, should be allowed to vote."

    This statement contradicts itself. Income tax is only a portion of government funding.

    I would want charges of treason against any Congressman who called for such a policy.
