    Without question they should be enabled to vote. They should also be encouraged to vote as well, its the patriotic thing to do.

    In some cases yes... But most people want purpose in their life and a good job can provide that and so if you're sitting on welfare and can't find a job, who do you pick?

    The people who will preserve the welfare system and claim they can also provide jobs.

    Or the people who call you a lazy leeching bum and promise to tear down your only source of income whilst seemingly giving larger and larger tax breaks to the rich?
    If you don't believe the "vote for more welfare" example, perhaps you can explain California, where Republicans aren't even a blip on the legislative radar any more, and more than 30% of the nations public assistance dollars are spent.

    They are citizens of the United States

    They are citizens of their community

    They are entitled to vote for who they feel best represents them just as everyone else in the U.S. and in their community does, simple as that.

    Encouraging people who have low to no info on the issues to vote is without a doubt one of the worse things that can happen.

    If they are otherwise eligible to vote, then of course they should.

    How do you know how much information a person on welfare has? There is an excelant chance they have more information than AmericanSpartan has.

    And yet we still let conservatives vote.

    So are you. Why should they be treated differently than you?

    What types of welfare? Veterans benefits? Disaster relief aide? Social security? Disability benefits? Student loans? Scholarships? Should we not allow those who drive on public roads to vote because they are receiving a benefit from the government?
