I know I posted this yesterday, but a lot of Freepers would have missed if they were not around, so I am re-posting it this time for consideration of those who are now checking out all the Monday morning stories.
Allowing people with no ‘skin in the game’ has the same bad ending wherever it’s tried. Eventually you end up with a huge under class who votes for their freebies.
Even the founders recognized the problem associated with everyone voting.
I say you need show a paycheck with at least $1000 in taxes paid before you get to vote.
So God-given rights are only for white men?
You can’t be serious.
This is sexist, in the same way that Democrats’ attempts to go after black and Mexican voters is racist. Voters should be treated as individuals, not as demographics for us to disenfranchise just because they break with us on major points of policy. That is what representative democracy is all about. I support the women’s right to vote just as I support the blacks’ right to vote, even if I disagree with the majority of voters in both their demographics.
Go back on or increase your meds. YOu must not be a conservative if you think such nonsense.
That said only landowners or real taxpayers should vote.
There's plenty of blame to go around. Trying to blame women is idiotic.
For some strange reason, I would object to not being able to vote based on gender. However, as much as it sounds nice that there should be an intelligence test prior to voting, some things are inappropriate.
In Heinlein’s book “Starship Troopers”, the concept of the freebies and government dole impact on the people is well isllustrated. Secondly this book brought into focus the concept of earning the right to vote. He was well before his time. Several of the “fictional” scenes seem all too real.
We can't blame people having rights on our failure to properly educate and instill conservative values in them. If certain segments by statistics, generally vote for a more 'nanny' care-taking type of government, that is OUR fault for not spreading Conservatism, that is not Freedom's fault.
70 percent of single women choose Obama.
"But at least 70 percent of unmarried women with and without children supported Obama, a margin of more than 2-to-1."
