    Of course they should.

    No, absolutely not. People on welfare being able to vote typifies the worst aspect of democracy. In fact, I would go much further and say that those who are making minimum wage ought not to vote. Universal suffrage is not the incontestable good that it's made out to be.

    Not everyone on welfare is abusing the system. Instead of advocating taking their vote away, why don't you demand your representatives to reform the system making it harder to be abused. We don't need 50 programs for the same thing and 25 programs for another. The hundreds of programs need to be consolidated to stop the double dipping. Programs we have had for 40 years which have not produced what they were sold to the people they would do, need to be removed.

    Why? You know what we didn't have back then when the vote was limited? A government that collects 50% of the country's income.

    It's nothing to do with abuse necessarily. Why should those who have no capital to protect have a say in how the capital of a country is distributed?

    Should we exclude talk radio listeners too then? I mean if we are going to excluded low info voters, that is a pretty broad net.

    You don't believe that to be true? And you provide no argument for that belief? Okay.
