    Whacky San Francisco thinks non-citizens should be able to 'be represented':

    Hmmm, the URL is tied to my name, which won't work for you. :)

    Here's the gist:

    Isn't the term "non-citizen" supposed to speak for itself? They may have a stake in the country, but they haven't earned the right to vote. This is MY f***ing country, and I'll be damned if every Pierre, Juanita, and Osama who happens to be within the borders during election gets to help make the decisions facing MY f***ing country! If you're not a U.S. citizen and you want to vote, fill out an absentee ballot for the country you're from. Heck, I'll be spending a year in China in a couple of years. If China had elections (maybe it does, but I didn't think commies had elections), I wouldn't vote in them if they let me, since I'm not Chinese, but you can bet I'll be sending absentee ballots back to the U.S.

    over my dead, decaying body will I relinquish control of my country to non-citizens. There's just no other way to say it.
