The thread in which redshadowz laments the ability of women to vote got me thinking - why do other people period get to vote? Why can't we just have a cbmsu01 dictatorship? It would work best for me!

Alternatively, everybody, regardless of whether they agree with me or not, should have that right. Isn't that what democracy is about?

Well, you don't think the same way that I think. And since it takes me to vote that you can vote and since I won't vote that you can vote, you basically won't be able to vote and therefore there won't be a cbmsu01 dictatorship.

It's really quite simple. redshadowz thread makes me want to desert this planet and hope to find intelligent life elsewhere. Clearly, it's not exactly widespread on earth.

redz has taken it one "little" step further now.....black people are emotionally compromised as well as women and should not be able to vote.

I guess since I'm a 19 year old black woman, there's no hope for me. I'm incapable of using logic and reason. My emotions control everything I do. I'm only good for sex and babies!

One would think... but if you were to base American views on this forum, the following people should NOT be allowed to vote:

Non-Christians
Women
Non-whites
Non-working people (even students & "kept" men/women)
Anyone who's receiving ANY kind of govt assistance
Anyone who doesn't own property, a business, and/or is a Veteran
People under 30 or over 65
Stupid people (I admit that would be nice, but they're Americans too!)
Liberals or conservatives, depending on who you ask...

Am I forgetting anyone - and who exactly is left? I'm out on 4 counts, dammit!

Let's not forget people with physical/mental/emotional health issues and people with disabilities. Let's also not forget the talented and gifted people. Oh... and legal immigrants who become naturalized citizens.
