Yeah Republicans always saying that they are MORAL and they uphold the Constitution when in reality they end up doing all the cheating and the bad things they "claim" Democrats are doing. This country starting to wake up and realize the power is in the people and there are MORE of us than there are THEM! HA!

Why is this supposedly non-partisan group only helping minorities register to vote? Shouldn't they want everyone to be registered to vote?

And why is the GOP purging millions of legal voters? Shouldn't they be following the law of the land (The U.S Constitution)?

It's a non-profit organization that does the bulk of its overall work in urban minority communities.

Let's cut the BS -- since we taxpayers fund these groups -- why should you take my money out of my kids' education, to pay for helping an adult vote for politicians who are burdening my kids' future even more?

Shouldn't this adult behave like an adult, as I do, and go learn how to vote, and vote on his / her own, without taking money from my kids?

Isn't this ridiculous? Is there a way I can opt out of funding these front groups for the Democratic Party?

Insult to injury in so many levels.

Nobody's taking money from your kids' education. How about you be the first to cut the BS...smh.

If anything, childless taxpayers such as myself subsidize your kids' education.

^^^This!

Please, if I were going to act all selfish about how my taxes were spent, there's a butt load of things I pay for (starting with chidlrens' education) that don't personally benefit me in the least, but you don't hear me griping about it. I look at the bigger picture; we are living in a society after all and I have to pitch in.

If I paid $ 10,000 a year in federal income taxes (I do pay a lot more, btw), if $ 600 is allocated towards these front groups, why can't I re-allocate this $ 600 towards my daughter's math tutoring?

As a childless taxpayer, you've got no kids to take care of you when you retire. Take a wild guess who will pay for your medicare and Social Security.

Look at this at a broader population, not simply you.

And if I follow your logic, if I pay $ 10,000 in taxes, and you pay $ 2000, do I get to use the road 5 times more than you? Should police and FD respond to me 5 times faster than you?

You are looking at it all wrong. You are paying more in raw numbers (I have no sympathy for you) but what percent of your income is going to taxes (Rhetorical question)? Someone could pay just $2,000 in taxes but they may be paying a higher percent of their income to taxes which disproves your point (Five Tax Deductions that Favor the Rich | Fox Business)!

Also, you should not get any additional benefits because you pay more in raw numbers. Everything should stay even (1 vote per person no matter how much you are contributing and you should receive equal amounts of public service as well- no more no less).

If so, then why should I have sympathy for you? Yet, you seem to have sympathy for others. Why do you discriminate?

Or is your sympathy only towards my fruits of labor?

Sorry, but those are terrible morals to have.

Why rhetorical? Look at the numbers. I am a working stiff. A very hard-working stiff. Not sure what tax-code you are referring to, but under the current IRS rules, the more I earn, the higher the PERCENTAGE I (or you) get taxed at. And that's taking into account deductions, exemptions, credits, everything.

Right, wrong or indifferent - these are the facts.

That's what I was saying. You, two posts ago, were making the opposite argument.

You stated, that as childless, you shouldn't have to pay for my kids' education. I countered that you will benefit from my kids in your retirement.

On a second thought, I would love to make a deal with you -- you don't pay anything for my kids' education in return for my kids not contributing a dime to your retirement, including your medicare.

I would love if we could vote on it. I know that it would probably drive most politicians and other parasites out of business. Like these left-wing front groups.
