you should not be able to vote in Federal Elections. (This would include contractors.)
If you accept any direct public assistance, you should not be able to vote in Federal Elections.
The above statements are not “new” thought nor are they mine. In full disclosure, I’m currently rereading Hayek’s The Constitution of Liberty in which he speaks to exactly such measures and how they should be considered no less reasonable than the current restrictions placed upon who may not vote such as residents of the District of Columbia, Resident Aliens and supposedly Non-Citizens.
I would take it a step further and ban the above from State Elections as well… but that would take the cooperation of fifty (not yet fifty-seven).
Of course this would be just one stepping stone back across the river where Freedom and Liberty reside.
And, It’s fun to dream and drink.
