    Illinois democrats now have complete control....and they are levying a new tax on gun ownership...raising the fees for simply owning a gun to 200 dollars....which means the poor and minorities will have a much more difficult time exercising their 2nd Amendment Rights...

    So....in light of that, is a 200 dollar fee to vote too much to expect for the Right to cast a vote?

    They also want to require your fingerprint to own a gun.....so shouldn't you be required to submit a fingerprint to vote? It would be a bonus because then the police could use that print when they investigate any crime they decide warrants looking at the voter fingerprint database.......

    So. . . there is willingness on your part to put a tax on a constitutionally guaranteed right, when the constitution clearly states, "shall not infringe,". . . . I guess you would have no problem if some state passed a tax on something that wasn't constitutionally guaranteed.

    Like, let's say if the voters of some state decreed that if a woman wants the right to kill the unborn, she needs to pay a $1000 tax?

    I don't think so. It doesn't make logical sense. Folks that are against abortion are traditionally against taxation too. It wouldn't occur to them.

    It would only occur to folks in places like NY and California that need and want to tax everything. But. . . . . they would never infringe upon something like that. . ..

    They want poor women aborting. In fact, they fund abortions for the poor, so it is sort of, counter intuitive of a notion when it comes down to it.

    You are right AND yet it is illegal to force people to pay to vote.

    Why do you demand that low-income people be unable to defend themselves? Do you hate poor people?
