    Of course they should, last time I checked even people on welfare were American citizens with all the rights that comes with that citizenship.
    toward that end the tactics and the strategies that people resort to in carrying out this ideologically driven agenda of what they call “pro-life” which is really pro-fetus does not have anything to do with the lives of babies after they’re born or the women who bear them.

    Yep, just like you are allowed for people who want to do away with welfare (if you feel that represents one of your interests).

    No voter is not a selfish prick about their priorities. Let's not pretend that those on welfare are somehow different from you.

    Some are contractual obligations while others are perks for being willing to put your life on the line for your Country.

    Receiving something for your service is much different than just getting something because you are a citizen.

    Some folks really have it out for the poor.

    Anyway, a thousand times yes.

    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?

    All well and good but anyone who goes into the voting booth expecting they might get a better job out of it is probably destined to remain on welfare.

    But on, welfare should not disqualify you from voting.

    This is an "attempt"?
