In the not-so-shocking, but oh-so truthful poll of the week, Rasmussen has discovered a majority of Democrats think illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that one-out-of-three Likely U.S. Voters (35%) now believes that illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote if they can prove they live in this country and pay taxes. Sixty percent (60%) disagree, while five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democrats think tax-paying illegal immigrants should have the right to vote.
Reminder, “incarcerated citizens” (prisoners) can’t vote. These are people who’ve done illegal things and are behind bars for it. So in the world of fairness, if illegal immigrants should are allowed to vote, it’s only fair we restore voting privileges to inmates and felons, right?
Never mind that we already have a huge problem with voter fraud. Dead people vote. Pets vote. People vote in political elections multiple times like they vote for their favorite contestant on the flavor of the month musical singing shows… So what’s just one more act of illegal voting? Election fraud for all! Let’s spread it around like Obama redistributes our wealth.
We also have Americans who don’t pay taxes who are voting. Translation: people without skin in the game are deciding where the money is going. They’re not contributing money, but they are voting it out of the treasury.
Land ownership rights, the horrors of slavery, women’s suffrage and other issues led to the “you don’t have to pay taxes to vote” decision. Now that our society’s moved on from those matters, maybe we should revisit who has voting rights. Tax dollars are running this country, after all. Maybe people who contribute zero tax dollars should have zero say in whether or not they get to take those dollars for themselves?
Let’s also remember that little item about voting being a right and responsibility. You don’t get the right to vote if you’re not responsible enough to come here legally, okay?
Period. K thanks bye.
