    "For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You should be removed from voting while you are receiving a Gov't welfare check."

    I came across this at another site. I neither agree or disagree at this point but what do YOU think?

    Sounds fair. I thought the government giving out gifts for votes=illegal. Only people that work for a living should be allowed to vote.

    I agree. I had a fried who said he voted for Obama because of the many unemployment extensions he was getting. Of course he stupidly suggested that had Bush still been President, he wouldn't have been able to collect for 99 weeks.

    Yup, only the greedy bloated mega rich who alone have prospered under Voodoo and even during this meltdown/depression/great recession should be pandered to. The poor victims should also have their voting rights taken away...It's their fault there are often hundreds of applicants for every job....see sig pp1.

    I know, let's cut taxes on the bloated rich, destroy Medicare and health reform, raise taxes and fees on the nonrich, let corporate cheats run wild, cut aid to states and localities, raise military spending to more than the rest of the world combined, and worry about the debt in 2035. Absolute idiocy, dupes.

    I'm far more interested in drug testing EVERYONE who receives public assistance.

    I think weed should be legalized, but I think the other stuff should be drug tested. :eusa_boohoo:

    Regardless... People on the take should be held to the EXACT same standards as other Government employees with regards to drug screenings.

    I think that the only qualification to be able to vote should be that you are an American citizen that lives in the country, excluding Military. I don't care where they are they should be able to vote.

    That may be due to your total lack of respect for our constitution and your falsely held belief that poor people are all smoking crack on your dime.
