I guess Democrats know more about the Constitution. :) See Section 2 - Time for the filibuster carveout to end this BS. In any case where such a right is being upended by power-hungry piglets, 50 votes shall be all that is needed.


Fifteenth Amendment

Section 1

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

Section 2

The Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

End what BS? Nobody is having their right to vote taken away by any State, let alone based on their race, color or previous condition of servitude...what are you going on about?

Are you not concerned about this coming back to bite the Dems when the GOP have the advantage?

Most of the morons who whine about so-called voter suppression have no problem suppressing our right to bear arms. I have seen no measures on voting that are anywhere near as harsh as the measures used to suppress gun ownership.

IMHO Republicans look at voting as a "privilege" because so many people around the world are denied that right. We are very lucky to be Americans where voting is a "right" but also a "privilege" in that we are a free people who can vote or not vote. We view that as a privilege.

I'm not sure that the OP and democrat responders are looking at what "privilege" means in this context.
I think voting is a "privilege" compared to Cuba or Venezuela where they are denied the right to cast meaningful ballots.

Don't be a weasel and try to spin it.
Just admit that 2/3 of Republicans don't understand the Constitution.
Driving is a privilege - Voting is a RIGHT.

Just saying that you don't know what the polling results meant by saying that voting is a privilege.
Privilege means "A special advantage, immunity, permission, right, or benefit granted to or enjoyed by an individual, class, or caste. synonym: right."

So a synonym of "privilege" is "right", so WTF does the poll mean?? NOTHING, both answers mean the same thing.
Who do you define as the beneficiary of the voting privilege? IMHO it is all Americans.

So I'm not sure what stupid context you're trying to get from meaningless poll results, but I'm sure you have something to whine about.

The question was quite clear: Is voting a right or a privilege?
There is only one answer.
Sit down before ya fall down ;)
