    Let me get this straight.
    We're going to pass a health care plan
    written by a committee whose head says he doesn't understand it,
    passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts themselves from it,
    signed by a president who also hasn't read it, and who smokes,
    with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes,
    overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and
    financed by a country that's nearly broke.
    What possibly could go wrong?

    It is like a bad comedy movie. How about the title, "Duuuude, wheres my health care"?
    If you presented this to any coherent human being they would laugh their butt off and say that it was a bad idea. Unfortunately we have few coherent humans in office.

    Sad to say a growing portion of society also and they vote especially if they believe it will mean free money.

    My question is should someone be allowed to vote who never held a job.?

    Only after you take away the right to vote of the people who don't hold a college degree and don't have military service etc.

    My point is, once you start placing voting restrictions (beyond what we have now, 18+ and incarcerated felons depending on the state), the floodgates have been opened. We've had poll taxes and grandfather clauses in the past, why should we revert back?

    Voting restricted to white land owning males anyone? That scares the sh*t out of me. I think voting should remain open as it is now, even if it is running our country into the ground. If all else fails, I'm moving to Idaho and hopefully avoiding another Ruby Ridge.

    I'm just playing devils advocate oldguy, I mean no harm
