There are only four groups of people who are generally not allowed to vote in the U.S. now, and the Left wants to enfranchise more of all of them: children, criminals, noncitizens, and the mentally ill.Now, no doubt—as National Review’s Jonah Goldberg has observed—much of this is politically driven: The Left thinks that all these groups (with the possible exception of the latter) are more likely to vote with them than against them, and it may well be right.
- CLEGG DOES A LOT OF POSTURING AND OVER-ANALYZING OF THE ISSUE.
- IT'S REALLY SIMPLE: IF YOU CAN'T WIN ELECTIONS WITH LAW-ABIDING ADULT CITIZENS YOU SHOULDN'T BE ON THE BALLOT.
- EVERYONE IN THE WORLD IS NOT A US CITIZEN.
- AND THEY HAVE NO HUIMAN RIGHT TO BECOME ONE AUTOMATICALLY, EITHER.
- THEY DON'T ALL PAY OUR TAXES, OR FIGHT IN OUR WARS, OR LEARN TO MAKE OUR HISTORY THEIR HISTORY.
- CITIZENSHIP IS A PRIVILEDGE.
- AND EVERYTHING THE LEFT WANTS TO DO WOULD MAKE IT LESS SO.
BTW: IF YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT AND OPPOSE GIVING FELONS AND NON-CITIZENS, NON-ENGLISH-SPEAKERS AND CHILDREN THE VOTE, THEN WHY NOT LEAVE THEM, ONCE AND FOR ALL!?
