    I don't think voting should be a right, I think it should be a requirement. I think anyone who isn't recorded at a polling place should be fined.

    Voting rights are protected by five different amendments--more than any other right. I don't think that we need a sixth, so I voted No on the poll.

    I'm genuinely curious how felony disenfranchisement can be allowed under so many amendments protecting the right to vote.

    I was just supporting my claim. I don't care if you live in Somalia or Seattle.

    We have more than enough people down here like you, so I'm hoping the same thing.

    That would be a horrible idea. Its bad enough we got the politically ignorant voting, why on earth would you want more of these people voting? Forcing someone to the poll is not going to make them informed about the candidates and ballot issues.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The same way politicians **** all over the 2nd amendment and any other right. They use the horse **** lie its a living document nonsense to blatantly misinterpret the constitution.

    Agree 100%. The last thing we need is to increase the uninformed vote. I would love it if we had 100% participation if every citizen was politically informed, but I don't think that is at all realistic.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    Are you crazy? The wealth leeching communists often garner more than 50% of the votes already. Get the rest of the crack smoking population involved and all you will hear is this giant sucking sound as they rob the people who create the wealth and make this country great and then take that money and spend it on their crack habit. You're going the wrong way. What we really need now is an authoritarian corporatocracy that knows how to protect and create wealth or we will end up like Russia did. Bankrupt and poor.
