Originally posted by Pool-BoyI will say that in my experience, those "border hopping aliens" are better citizens than almost all of the natural born Americans when it comes to voting. Well, the ones who came here through legal channels anyway.
Yet, you advocate not letting them vote?

Now, is it ok for me yell THEATRE! in a crowded fire?
Originally posted by Downtown BookieSince one of the principles this country was founded on was the notion that taxation without representation was tyranny, then those who support the notion that "stupid" people shouldn't be allowed to vote must obviously also believe that "stupid" people should not have to pay taxes (be they local, state, or federal; income, sales, property or estate). After all, to force people to pay taxes without allowing them to vote would be anathema to a representative government. It would be tyrannical. It would be un-American. Quite frankly, it would be stupid. At least, IMHO.
I wish this happened for real. If I had to chose between having the right to vote ergo jury duty and such, or no taxes. I would fail every I.Q. test on purpose.
