Should people on welfare be allowed to vote?
I'm not going into some other convoluted justification of disenfranchisement by equating all welfare recipients to the mentally ill, or that since you don't live in a certain state you cannot vote there (!?).
Most able bodied adults on SNAP work and pay taxes, yet under your convoluted extremist one size fit, they should not vote.People on welfare are in some cases not subject to those taxes because they are very poor and very dependent on society to get by. They don't pay taxes, rather they only receive benefits from those taxes.I have no idea why you think their not voting is based on "dependence", this is a false premise.This is the essence of dependence. Minors are dependent and they don't have the voting privilege. Never have had it.And you go hopping down your convoluted extremists Founders rabbit hole again, to hell with amendments!Voting is (or should be) more of a function of being subject to that government's taxes than simply be some universal privilege you receive when turning 18.
