    Hillary Clinton speaks out on voting rights ....

    Well Hillary Clinton is throwing stones at States that are trying to get rid of early voting and other things they think will crib the myth of voting fraud. She didn't say anything like this when she was a NYS Senator about her own States one day of voting! She also went after preventing college students from voting and that Is not true at all. As a student as well as a soldier I always used absentee voting ballots and how in the world would banning this ever stand up in court?

    So this is why I feel as an Independent she is just a hypocrite and renforces me not to vote for her ever again!

    I've realized that politicians look out for their best interests and really couldn't care less about the state of the country. They're all extremely smart but intelligence has nothing to do with morality. They are criminals in business suits.

    There is no Constitutional right to vote in a federal election (via SCOTUS 2000). Thank God!!

    The voting age should be for 25 (unless you're in the military, then it's 18) and if you have a federal income tax liability above 0.

    Thankfully, the Constitution disagrees with you.

    What's with the right and their historical obsession with preventing people from voting? Priorities I guess. Or fear.

    I wonder if you would say that if voters under 25 were more likely to align with your party. Doubt it.

    So are you dismissing the issue and her because you don't like her timing? The States frick'n need stones thrown at them. The agenda in States with conservative legislatures is not to promote the convienence of voting, and turn out voters, but to consolidate power by disenfranchising perceived blocks of "hostile" voters. Online electronic voting is a must for the future of democracy, if you care about it.

    Why arbitrarily pick this? No, let us make it so that you must have a yearly income of at least a quarter of a million.

    That is the only way us upper class folk can not have our votes tarnished by plebs.

    Too much distortion in that name, without basis, unless you have some to provide?

    It's not very arbitrary. It used to be restricted to land owners. At that time we did not have a federal income tax, so if you are not a mooch, you get to vote.

    Depends on your definition of poor. If you contribute $0, you get 0 votes. Life isn't fair.

    Hitlary is bad news all the way.

    She voted for the patriot act, is financed by the same people as Barry and Dubya, will try to take peoples rights away (2nd amendment, etc.) and she will basically continue the path of her two predecessors. There are candidates who are way better options, but nevertheless the dumb masses will vote for her, because of the way she is marketed. It's a tragedy!

    Don't forget the Clinton body count. Also, her husband is a rapist.

    Lol. And these are the people who call themselves "real 'Mericans". Your values, or lack thereof, are against what this country stands for. So glad you people will never have your way.

    The Founders only allowed landowners to vote for a reason. Now, the poor have been voting for people (mostly Dems) that have promised them goodies and entitlements for multiple generations.

    For those who are able-bodied, instead of getting off their butts, they just depend on daddy gov to provide for them generation after generation.

    How many trillions have been spent on the "war on poverty?" LOL

    And we've changed that law for a reason. The Founders also allowed for things to be changed as deemed necessary by people in the future. I guess they were kinda smart for their time.

    Source?


    Probably many less trillions than we wasted on the "war on terror".

    Why stop there, I think to get the real traditional vote for the USA.

    You can only vote if your direct ancestors came over in the Mayflower, or you are a direct descendant of one of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence.

    Otherwise you are a profiteer, and not worthy of the true American ideals.

    Praxis has a good point.
    People who are dependent on the authorities to take care of them are poison to any form of a free society.
