    That was only because I didn't know about it. I agree with you that such an attitude is disturbing.

    Yeah... and where is "In God We Trust" emblazened the most? On money. Say hello to the real religion of this country.

    If people placed their trust in God - not the dogmatic one, but the actual one - our country would be in a much better place.

    I think only people whose name is Christian should be allowed to vote.

    Doubt it. I would almost guarantee you can't find one person on here who thinks religious people should not be able to vote or run for office.

    Yes there are a few, I know we debated about it. I mean it's not like I have not been on this board for almost 3 years, but what the hell do I know.

    Typical partisan response.

    Temporal you didn't vote. I think I have a choice for you that is close enough to your position. I'm sure that we'll only hold you to your written opinion and not the wording of your choice. And Money is not a choice in this poll, but I do understand your comment. So please, go ahead and vote.

    This crap is ridiculous. In Tessa's world, the following people should not be allowed to vote:

    1. Those currently in prison for violent crimes/felony convictions.
    2. Those who are deceased.
    3. Those who are legal dependents of another (minors, those with limited mental capabilities, etc...NOT welfare recipients/entitlement recipients, 'cause I know somebody will go there).

    Re: ‘In God we trust.’ is the USA’s motto. So who should we allow to vote?

    To go off on a tangent. I think "In God we Trust" is a poor motto. I don't really oppose it on First Amendment grounds. It's just a motto, and it doesn't force anyone to follow or support certain religious practices. However, it seems like a shallow phrase, devoid of much meaning. It was mostly to distinguish us from the "godless" Communists, but it does a poor job at giving any indication to our nation's character. Personally, I like the old motto, "E. Pluribus Unum." It better encapsulates a defining characteristic of our nation, a great amount of diversity coming together into a single community. That sounds a lot more appropriate than some shallow, indirect rebuke of Communism
