    I really don't see your logic. They are American Citizens guaranteed the right to vote by the Constitution. I don't see why the guy who delivers your mail shouldn't get the same vote you do.

    They really aren't as arrogant as those fucking soldiers. Especially those god damned Marines.

    Marines are entitled to $1,000,000 per year. The soldiers are entitled to at least $100,000. Wouldn't you agree? They are awesome.

    Arrogance is irrelevant. American citizens over the age of 18 (expecting felons) all get a vote.

    That's total nonsense, in theory and practice.

    Maybe the ballot should be part of the 1040 form, "no representation without taxation"

    What kind of questin is that, to ask if a person that is employed by the government should get to vote. There is no reason for them to not be allowed to vote. If they could not vote their would be millions of people not allowed to vote. The public employes are above 18 and are not felons, so of course they have a right to vote.

    I never voted when I was a government employee because I thought it was morally wrong.

    I think the OP meant legally. If so, I would change my vote to, Yes. The rules would be too complicated to ban government employees from voting.

    Legally, yes they should be allowed to vote. Morally, no they absolutely should not. That is disgusting.
