yup.2: I'm assuming that the "franchise" you are talking about is voting?
Franchise Definition: 1. General: Right conferred or established by a government, such as the right to vote (exercise one's franchise) in a local or national election.
no, it's pay your taxes; or, if you don't wish to bear the responsibility that comes with power (which is what the vote is - power to determine the course of the most powerful nation upon the planet), do not.What kind of choice is that? Either pay money or you can't vote?
then you need hearing aids. seriously, is the race card the best one you have to play here?Sounds like the old days when the states wanted to put up tests in order to deny blacks the right to vote to me.
actually no, it doesn't; one can make any amount of income under this plan, and simply choose to forgoe the deductions that would keep one from being a net tax payer. you could be 18, earn $2,000 at a summer job, pay your 10% income tax on it, send in a check for 200 bucks, and then go vote.Only instead of it being educational required tests it now relies on how much money one makes.
no, but that is the general movement. not a whole lot of companies work during Christmas except those that have to (Hospitals etc). ditto for thanksgiving, labor day, so on and so forth. irrespective, election day should be a federal holiday.3: Just because it is a federal holiday does not mean that a company has to let thier workers have the day off
