Use the right to vote to encourage those lazy leeches to get off of their asses and get a job.

    I had heard of this guy but I don't think I've ever listened to him before. I have heard Rush and Hannity before but this guy seemed extreme even in comparison to those guys. Who in their right mind would really suggest that the poor should not be allowed to vote. Taking power away from people and handing it solely to the upper classes. And he was talking about this should be one of the platforms of the Republican party.

    What do you think?
    I think its nonsense. The right to vote doesn't depend on whether you work, or not, it depends on if you are a citizen, or not and I think even that doesn't always matter. Bottom line is Mr. Savage doesn't speak for the entire Republican party and I disagree with a lot of the hot air he spouts. He is more coo coo then Limbaugh. Hannity is sane, but even he gets a little too much for me at times

    So you favor peeing on the Constitution and ignoring it

    Only people who pay taxes should get a vote. That doesn't mean we allow our poor to starve in the streets.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    If you wish you have American caste system why you don't be honest and make it?

    I do not recommend it.

    People that pay 10x more tax better get 10 votes? I thought you have an equality thing?

    I DO wish we had a caste system here in the US. It would fix many of our issues.

    How about back to Queen and peasants and do away with the independence so many gave their lives for?

    Every few months some warrior of the far right brings up the question of some attachment on voting rights so as to disqualify the people they do not like voting since it is believed that most of them do not vote for the far right candidates. Remember the insanely stupid "net taxpayer" nonsense floated in the past here by some angry that Democrats were winning elections and they had to find a dirty and illegal way to beat them?

    This simply a manifestation of that same craven political desire.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    I should have added a sarcasm alert. Sorry.
