    Certain taxes are waived when you reach a certain disability percentage, mainly 100% service connected. That means that the military jacked you up so bad that they are willing to pay you a lot of money for the rest of your life, just because.

    Call it punitive damages, if you'd like.

    Either way, I'm sure that he'd rather pay property tax, and ad velorum tax, and NOT be disabled as a result of his military career.
    Excluding veterans.
    Of course I think veterans should always have the right to vote!
    I guess I should have worded that better.
    I just hate the idea of welfare abusers voting in the guy who will continue to let them abuse the system. But I guess there is nothing that we can really do about that.

    Literally everybody pays taxes of some sort.

    Well, I guess infants don't. But anyone who has paid for anything does, unless they live in one of the very few places that has no state or local sales taxes.

    I don't like the idea of only certain people being allowed to vote anyway.

    Smacks of the fat rich white guys, who were the only ones allowed to vote, before the 15th and 19th amendment.

    All citizens should be able to vote, despite their station in life.

    Democracy is government by THE PEOPLE, Not just a select few.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    You're missing my point.

    Sales taxes are taxes. Payroll, excise, Social Security -- all taxes. The number of people who pay no taxes is exceedingly small.

    Ghetto people or not, they are still American citizens and still have the right to vote.
