I think only tax payers should be able to vote. People who work and contribute to society shouldnt have to be overrun by leeches who want the government to steal money from me and give it to them.

    I can't wait for YOU to lose your fking job, burn through your 401K and retirement, get your house foreclosed on, and have to resort to food stamps to feed your family.- then you might get a taste of the other end of your narrow-minded opinion.

    If they didn't we'd have no Democrats.

    this is a joke question, surely. why would anyone deny welfare recipients the right to vote?

    Really? GIven Obama won by roughly 4 million votes in November, and that there are only about 4-5 million people on welfare in any given month (difficult to give an "annual" total because most people on welfare are actually only on it for a few months at a time; as of 2010, the month average was 4.4 million collecting welfare, so the annual average would be roughly in that ballpark), it's difficult to see how it would matter to Democrats. Many on welfare, especially in the South, are white and actually vote Republican more than Democratic, so it would hurt the GOP as much as Democrats...

    If they are US citizens, YES they should be allowed to vote. A country will get in big trouble when you start picking and choosing who you think should vote and who not.
    The only criteria that should be enforced regarding voting privileges, is citizenship, makes no difference who you are, how rich you are, what color you are or what your heritage is. And yes, I even think republicans should be allowed to vote. I know that is going a little bit to the extreme but they do have that right as long as they are citizens of this country!

    Needing help should not mean you must trade your right to vote in in order to receive help.

    of course they should !,i think the question is insulting.to all those who are having a hard tme making ends meet There are many many people who want to work but are unable to find a job or have been laid off and need Government help. to support their families or single Moms needing to feed their kids.. ask yourself as an American citizen, if you found yourself in this situation would you want to be denied the right to vote?

    Of course they can!!! What a dumb proposal...

    If you're going to preach no votes allowed for those on welfare or food stamps (who are mostly children, anyway), then take away the right to spend one penny on elections by any corporation that gets one single penny of corporate welfare (ie. all oil companies, WalMart, Amazon, etc.). Fair is fair!

    Well the best news is he was 404'd! That is a totally ridiculous narrow minded thing to say. Just because someone having a hard time for what ever reason, is NO reason to deny them a Constitutional right. Kick them when there down. So if you lost your job or got sick and had to apply for welfare, and food stamps how would you feel?
