    It should be treated as a cherished privilege that needs to be taken seriously. But it shouldn't be taken away because people are liable to vote in their own self interest.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    Off topic, but the doctors here inform me that I should wait till Spring to ride my bike. I'm afraid not to listen to them, so it's already in storage, but I sure do miss the fun of being a menace on the roadways!!

    Good afternoon, AP.
    Good afternoon pg. The Dems would have an absolute hissy fit, if this ever became a real issue...

    No, it should be lost when they require the federal government to provide payments for their basic needs...

    Why? I honestly don't see why you should lose your right to vote over that. Like everyone else they generally vote for the government programs that benefit them, and to decrease their tax burden.

    Why should the federal government bestow benefits on any individual?

    Maybe it shouldn't. I don't see what that has to do with this. People should be allowed to vote in affirmation of benefits and against them.

    There's certainly a problem. But your solution is wrong.
