Scotland also allows all residents with a perminant address to vote. If they tax your income and tax your spendign and tax your savings--why not let you vote?
Well the US 8 times as many immigrants than the entire UK. Then we have somewhere between 11 and 18 million illegals that our government is considering granting amnesty. One can see how this could significantly change our culture. Something our current immigration policy prohibits. While your comment doesn't sound unreasonable and may work find in Scottland I don't see it working here.
That's stupid. It brings to mind the wholesale minting of Roman Citizens towards the end of the Empire. Citizenship only holds value if you work towards it.
I agree. Just recently in Puttman County TN a legal resident was identified by DHS as being registered to vote. He voted in the 2004 National election. No charges(statute of limitations expired). The legal resident said he didn't know he couldn't vote with out being a citizen even though he signed an afidavit stating he was a US citizen when he registered to vote. So with this being the case. It would appear that Maine's resolution would only muddy the waters further.
The right to vote means less and less today. The reason you're seen this fraudulent franchise movement is so that the power of your vote is diluted. Because Congress can tax us whatever they wish, they can also dispense tax money in return for votes. It amazes me how many people buy into the "we're free because we vote" nonsense.
That's what they are considering.....one might say it's a foot in the door so to speak.
I kind of wonder if the Justice department will step in? I mean after all they did when a small town in South Carolina decided they wanted to remove political affiliation from the ballot.

If all the I illegal Aliens said tomorrow they are voting Republican, would the Dems desire Voter ID cards, would they want the voter rolls updated, would they have backed Obama's amnesty for the young illegals?

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Arizona cannot require proof of citizenship for voter registration. HUH???? Sorry, I'm all for legal immigration, but voting is a right reserved for U.S. citizens - not for illegal immigrants. When American citizens are convicted of drug crimes, their...

Should prison inmates be allowed to vote in elections?Criminals in jail are there because they choose to operate outside the limitations that society has designed in law. Is it right that we give those same criminals a say in how those rules are made and how society is run?
