LOL! I accidentally outlawed religious worship once. Judging by your post I could have done worse.
How is everyone
Pretty good, just started a new term in college. Apparently, I won't have a summer vacation till after my birthday. So of course, I'm very happy right now.
I would add an exception for fraud to the violence option in the poll. I don't like the idea of Bernie Madoff voting.
A "right" in the sense of the word the Bill of Rights understood the term is a limitation on government power - it is NOT being part of the government (ruling over others) or being part of the selection process for taxation and government spending. The American States restricted the vote to those who paid the Property Tax (the main source of State and local revenue at the time - Federal Government spending did not become really important in peacetime till the 1930s), the franchise included female Property Tax payers in such States as New Jersey (till the Democrats took the vote AWAY from female Property Tax payers in the early 19th century - Wyoming later reversing this trend against women voting, but Wyoming did not become a State till 1890).
As for criminals (rich or poor) voting - criminals setting the laws for other people, that does not make much sense. "But the poor communities" - well they will certainly stay poor if the criminals are in charge of them. Although historically in such major cities as Chicago disguised criminals have long been in charge anyway (| admit that). I am told that Chicago once had an honest Mayor - in the middle of the 1920s (the gangsters went to the town of Cicero in the four years he was in charge).
All be that being said - the "War On Drugs" (which has no Constitutional basis - at least not as far as the Federal government is concerned) has produced millions of "criminals" and none of the Founders really thought of a situation where a large part of the population would be declared "criminals" by insane laws passed by an elected legislature. In a secret ballot it is unlikely that most people would have voted for these laws - but a legislature votes in public, and politicians have to be careful not to offend fanatics who vote on single issues. This was how alcohol got banned as well - there was no public vote, it was banned by politicians who did NOT believe in what they were doing (they were not total idiots - they were cynical men of the world), but did not want to offend a minority of single-issue-voters.
I believe that the same should be true today with the exception that the right to vote is earned by paying more in tax than you receive in government welfare, kickbacks, and subsidies. Only people who have proved to be capable in their own lives should be able to choose the direction of the nation.
