    Sorry but I have never wrote a line advocating that parasites and deadbeats vote. I have always advocated that American citizens vote.

    As to the rest, you never answered my series of questions.

    no, the Constitution allows all citizens above the age of 18, to vote. It fails to use your hateful & bigoted terms, such as "parasite" and "deadbeat".

    You can vote for more than one.
    Nope: I'm all for government figuring out how to more wisely spend the tax money they do receive!

    Let's here it for budgeting and careful spending! Wooot Wooot - what so many Americans have had to learn how to do!!

    and my argument is no strawman-one of the socialists on this board continually calls FDR and his lapdogs "our forefathers

    the founding fathers believed those who were not landed property owners should not vote. it kept the parasites from voting away the wealth of the worthies

    people who demand that others pay for their existence are parasites

    by preventing non landed people from voting the founders kept most of the parasites from voting. Of course back then, we didn't create many parasites and the conditions were not conducive an environment for them to grow or survive
