    Been thinking about this ever since barry became POTUS, how fair is it that people that hate government and spend most of their waking moments trying to avoid paying taxes are allowed to vote?

    The GOP has been pandering to what they call "real" Americans instead of addressing the problems that led the country to its current state, i.e. abuses by the corporations they support.

    So back to the theme of this, do you believe its ethical to use the voting process to elect officials that hate government?

    I am not talking Constitution here, as it clearly is, although the founders would do flip flops in their graves if they saw how their ideas are now perverted.

    Actually, you didn't think at all my dear, as I agree that GoPers are douche bags.

    But it is a valiant effort nonetheless!

    Political discourse is an American tradition.
    Everybody should vote, even the mentally handicapped.

    It appears to me that both sides of the two party system work very hard for the moron vote.

    Sorry Rav, the only prerequesite to vote is to be an American; No civics tests, IQ test, or even speaking English are required. The Cons have the same right to manipulate the weak-minded that everyone else does.

    Kudos on the last sentence though. Kudos indeed.

    Most conservatives don't "hate" the government ravi, in fact they love our governmental system as outlined by our founding fathers in the constitution. However, over the last 100 years we have slowly and steadily moved away from that structure to something different and this is what causes conservatives, independants, and republicans angst. The very angst you are here responding to with this thread.

    Indeed, as you say, the founders ARE flipping in their graves at how we have perverted their idea over the years and especially over the last 10 years.

    You are confusing standing up and speaking out against the wrongdoing of the government for hate.....very reminicent of how the bush-bots used to call people protesting the wars/patriot act unamerican and unpatriotic. I hope you can learn from this mistake of yours and begin to have a better mindset in the future, your my fellow american and I pray for you that you can.
