Welfare Deadbeats Should Not Vote!

Amp198

There is no constitutional right to vote.  Argue all you want, but it’s a simple fact.  To understand this, we need to set aside everything we were taught in public schools using a curriculum that is put in place by the unconstitutional Department of Education.  It’s not in the government’s best interest to teach you how to limit the government, so very little is taught about the Constitution any longer.  There are two types of rights and we can’t get them confused.  There are natural rights, those that are God given, many of which the Founding Fathers enumerated in the Constitution and Bill of Rights, such as the right to bear arms.  Then there are legal rights, which are those granted by government, so they really aren’t rights at all, since the government can take them away just as easily as they granted them.

The right to vote is a legal right and one that is granted by states, not the federal government.  When our country was founded most states required voters to be land owners, because it’s a good idea for those who have a say in government to also have a stake in it.  Most states didn’t allow women to vote, but New Jersey did.  There is no single set of rules for the entire United States with regard to voting.

In 1870 the states ratified the 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  Contrary to popular belief, this did not give blacks or other minorities a right to vote.  What it did was take race out of the infinite number of reasons a state could use to revoke voting rights.  The 15th Amendment has the word right in it, but doesn’t grant a right.  It merely recognizes that the legal right may exist in the states.  Now a state could not base a person’s eligibility to vote on their race.  If the 15th Amendment actually granted all minorities a right to vote, then it would have included black women as well, but it didn’t.  States could still bar women from voting.

Fifty years later, in 1920, the states ratified the 19th Amendment.  By doing this they relinquished the ability to use gender as criteria in determining who could vote.  Like the other amendments dealing with voting, this one doesn’t grant women a right to vote.  It says that their right to vote “shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”  So, they can’t deny you the legal right to vote on account of sex, but they sure could for any other reason except for race.  Legal rights to vote could still be denied based on age or a trillion other reasons.

In 1964,the 24th Amendment was ratified eliminating the ability for states to charge a poll tax to vote.  After all, how can a deadbeat’s vote be bought with welfare checks if they couldn’t afford to pay a poll tax to vote?  This amendment ensured that the decline into socialism in the United States would speed up dramatically.  This finished setting the stage which was set by the New Deal to ensure that people could vote for more and more handouts.  When people vote for their own government dependencies, it’s easier for the government to maintain that dependence.  A dependent citizen is a compliant citizen.  Scratch that…  A dependent citizen is a slave.

The myth that we have a constitutional right to vote makes people feel good, because it sounds fair, so it makes a poll tax seem unfair and a way for the rich to control things.  Well right now the rich do control things, because so many of the poor depend on government for handouts.  Another way of looking at it is that the deadbeats control things as they steal from us and vote to steal more.

Giving deadbeats the ability to vote by eliminating the poll tax wasn’t good enough.  The government wanted more deadbeats voting and the more ignorant, the better.  Along came the 26th Amendment.  It was decided that it would be wise to allow uneducated, inexperienced, clueless children to vote.  States no longer have the ability to determine who can vote based on age, over 18.  The way it is written they can not abridge the legal right to vote for anyone over 18 on account of age, but they still can abridge that legal right for anyone under 18.  Or not!  A state could decide not to abridge the legal right to vote for 12 year olds if they wanted to.  Then anyone 12 and up could vote! Again, like the previous three amendments, the 26th Amendment doesn’t grant a right to vote, it merely subtracts a reason from the unlimited number of reasons that states can use to revoke the ability to vote.

The 15th, 19th, 24th, and 26th Amendments never mention a word about welfare or other entitlements.  They are free game.  Every federal entitlement is unconstitutional with the exception of pensions.  For instance, military retirees have earned the benefits that were part of their contract when they signed on for  service.  It would be perfectly legal and tremendously beneficial for states to revoke the legal right to vote from all recipients of unconstitutional entitlements.  I may go so far as to grant an exception for Social Security, due to the fact that we have no choice to opt out.  That is a an entirely different conversation.

I would like to see voting rights revoked from all recipients of programs like Welfare, HUD, Food Stamps (EBT), WIC, and Planned Parenthood, federally funded abortions.  The revocation should last 7 years beyond the final receipt of any of these benefits to ensure they are forced to sit out one full election cycle, including senate races.  I would reduce it to 5 years if the 17th Amendment is repealed and senate elections go back to state legislatures where they belong.

Legal residents of the United States who are not citizens enjoy all the rights that the Constitution protects.  They even have the right to bear arms.  I know legal residents who buy guns.  The fact that no state allows legal residents to vote in federal elections is all you need to know to realize that voting is not a constitutional right.

It’s time to ban deadbeats from the voting booth!  People can set their own destiny.  They can choose to be a contributing member of society in every way including voting, or they can choose to be a leech, in which case they can no longer choose what they leech.  Which would you choose?

    • Wow! What a mean-spirited article. So anyone who needs help from the government is a deadbeat? Many hard working people fall on tough times–divorce, job loss, death in the family. But they are all deadbeats? But the good rich property owners who bribe our government officials so they make tax laws that exempt the wealthiest people from their obligation to support the government ought to vote. You should be ashamed.

They take this list from the Welfare department, export it into a CSV file, then import it into the voter roll database where it gets cross referenced with that list of names and addresses. Any that match are dropped from the voter registry and not allowed to vote. The few names that are left from the Welfare database that didn’t match up due to new arrivals to the state or changes of address are manually cross referenced to the voter database. If they are not found on the voter database, then good. They aren’t voting. If a match is found, they are dropped. All very easy for a low level DBA (Database Administrator).

  3. Wasn’t the whole reason the founding father’s had a problem with the King of England was because they were being taxed with our representation? Weren’t land owners allowed to vote because they had a vested interest in the how the land was to be governed including taxed? Do those ideal still apply today? Should those receiving “entitlements” not have the “right” to vote for representation, do they not have a vested interested in how their “entitlements” are governed?

    And what about all those who both work and receive some type of “entitlement?”

    I am pretty sure the Constitution starts “We the People of the United States, In Order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty…”

    It is not talking about some of the people, nor is it talking about just a certain class of people. This document applies to all the people equally. And first on the list is Justice. Is it just to deny people the ability to vote based upon a transient circumstance such as employment, or receiving “entitlements?” If YOU get fired from your job the day before the next elections, does that mean you loose your vote? What if your husband runs out on you with his secretary and leaves you with two kids at home, your only recourse is WIC so you can feed your kids, you should loose your vote because your husband is a bastard?

    Ideas change, that is why the Constitution is a living document open to change as ideas do. The idea of “voting” for an official was ridiculous in the time it was presented. No other country was doing that. It was a crazy progressive idea and not well thought out. It took years to refine what it meant. But that does not deny our God given right to have a say in how we are governed.

    The same goes with the idea of “promoting the general welfare.” A radical idea! How and in what ways is the government supposed to promote welfare? An open but important question, left for later generations to answer with such things as education, roads and railways, water ways, assistance programs and Social Security. Promoting the general welfare is a Constitutional prerogative. Maybe, instead of a haphazard approach we need an amendment outlining what exactly that ideal should encompass and limit what the Federal government can get their grubby hand into.

    • No, the revolutionary war was not started over taxation without representation. It was started over British gun control, when the redcoats marched on Concord to seize arms.
      Did you really say, “Should those receiving ‘entitlements’ not have the ‘right’ to vote for representation, do they not have a vested interested in how their ‘entitlements’ are governed?” That’s the problem. People keep voting to steal. Federal entitlements are unconstitutional. Of course these deadbeats should not get to vote on how they are handled. Their federal entitlements should all be cut off, immediately and completely.

      No, the Constitution is not a living document any more than your mortgage is. If it doesn’t mean what it says, why write it down? Show me in the Constitution where it says “this is a living, document: Change what it means at will.” It can be amended, but until it is, it remains static. Really? Ideas change? So, ideas about being free and not having a government rule over us with a boot on our throat change? Maybe we enjoy the boot on our throat now?
      You do realize that they named the welfare program “welfare” just so that stupid people would think that is what the welfare clause meant, don’t you? If the welfare clause meant the federal government to steal my money and give it to you, why did it take about 150 years to start happening? Public school has failed you and many of us. It’s time to wake up. Sadly, we have to educate ourselves.

      • If the Constitution is not a living document, then it cannot be changed. But it can be changed therefore it is a living document. The way in which it lives is that it can be changed through amendments to take into account ideas which change. Yes, ideas change. If they did not then we would be a monarchy not a republic. We would have a feudal system of economics, not a regulated capitalism. Our system allows for changes to occur, but occur slowly, not in haste. And that is a good thing. Like was stated in the original post about voting, who could do it. It takes time to work out new ideas and implement them, some times it takes hundreds of years for an idea to run its course. Remember reading about Prohibition and how great this nation would be if we could just get rid of the scourge of alcohol? A new idea! which after decades of pushing got our Constitution changed. And then changed right back after people realized it was stupid plan. Bad idea!

        If “entitlement” were unconstitutional then they would have been overturned by the Supreme Court in its much needed role as Judicial Review. But if you throw out that role of the Supreme Court then you have no recourse for unconstitutional laws.

        Thank you for writing a blog that aids in my thinking and self education.

        • The Constitution is NOT a living document. The term living document is what liberals use to misinterpret the Constitution, because it says things they hate. Any document can be amended. It is tremendously difficult to amend the Constitution. Being amendable doesn’t make it living.
          Whether ideas remain the same or change have absolutely nothing to do with the type of government. The Constitution laid out a republic that is as close to perfection as possible. Chaning ideas only takes us away from that. Right now we are ruled as an oligarchy. The Constitution is completely and utterly ignored by the federal government.
          The Supreme Court has no enumerated authority in Article 3 of the Constitution to legislate, interpret the Constitution, or throw out laws. They exercise that power illegally after usurping it. Massive dumbing down of Americans allows them to get away with it, because they all think that is the job of the Supreme Court when it isn’t. The Constitution says no such thing and due to enumerated powers created by the 10th Amendment, they have no power that isn’t listed in the Constitution. Federal entitlements are all unconstitutional for the same reason. Congress is given no enumerated authority in Article 1, Section 8 to legislate in the area of wealth redistribution, charity, or any other kinds of handouts.

          • I love what the Constitution says! I think it is far from perfect, but much better than anything else that has come along.

            The Supreme Court has from nearly the beginning held Judicial Review. There was precedent for them to do so which predated the Constitution and was “understood” to co-exist with the Constitution. The Constitution was not created in a vacuum but was part of a long line of changing and developing ideas spanning hundreds of years. All of that was a precursor to how the Constitution was developed. implemented and enforced. And those ideas continue to change! And our Living Constitution needs to reflect that change. There needs to be some form of review for laws that get passed which do not reflect the Constitution. If it is not going to be the Supreme Court, then what is it going to be, general revolt of the populace?

            If you want a dead Constitution which holds no meaning and is irrelevant to today’s society then keep on trying to walk backwards into the past. I prefer to look forward into the future and ask “what do I want for my kids and grandkids?” I do not want countless generations of “welfare babies” so lets amend our Constitution to define “welfare.” Let us be active and take back our government and our country and move forward with clearer definitions and amendments to prevent the further development of our country into an Oligarchy and the corporate tyranny that will come next. Let us not let our representatives by bought and sold by the highest bidder. Lets get money out politics and force a balanced budget. Lets learn to be proactive instead of reactive. Let “We the People” have the final say in how our country is going to be run.

Any laws that are not within the strict confines of the enumerated powers in Article 1 Section 8 are unconstitutional. It doesn’t leave much, domestically, to legislate on. Post offices/roads, coining money, regulating interstate trade, and patents are pretty much the gist of it.

The Constitution can be read two ways. 1. You can only do that which it expressly says you can do. 2. You can do anything you want unless it expressly forbids it. We, as a nation, are firmly planted in the second, but you want to stay in the first. Now the first reading may be more genuine and in keeping with “original intent” and all that, but we have strayed so far into #2 that trying to move backwards is senseless. No, move forward and make amendments to our living document so that #2 becomes redefined as #1. Set limits with clear and precise language and cut away all the rest, leave no doubt or room for “interpretation” that is the only way to save our nation from the money and corporations which have taken over.

  4. People who are welfare more than three (maybe six months) in the previous 12 months) should NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOTE. I absolutely want that in place. However, i don’t like the image you use at the top of this article. You show a BLACK woman and a BLACK child. Are you IMPLYING that it is ONLY black people who are on welfare and/or are deadbeats? Because I live in a 99.9% black community (by choice, because I wanted to find out more about black people). These people are hardworking, God-fearing, loving family people. It is the QUIETEST neighborhood I’ve ever lived in. Why? BECAUSE all my neighbors are early to bed early to rise. Never have seen anyone doing a ‘dope deal’ here. Did have a teenage boy tell me (like teenage boys will do out of hormonal imbalance, I assume) that he ‘really wanted to smoke some weed’, at which point I gave him my card and said “when you want to learn how to program” call me, because my name is Violet WEED. But other than that, this is a great community. I know there are some welfare people here, I see them at the grocery store across the street when the ‘checks arrive’, but not many.
    Welfare as a way of life DOES exist, but there’s many white and maybe two ASIANS living on welfare. (Yes, I’m a bigot. I don’t know any Asian (chinese, indian, particularly KOREAN, Japanese) people who are on welfare. They probably exist, maybe in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

    • I think it was you that assumed a black person pictured means “all blacks are on welfare”. If you really are as enlightened as you claim in your long winded diatribe about living in a community to learn more – perhaps you should see a mother and child in the picture instead of race??

    • So people who lose their jobs–maybe their employer shipped it off to China?–shouldn’t be allowed to vote if they need gov assistance. How about GW Bush? He was part owner of the Texas Rangers, a for profit baseball team. They got the gov to seize privately-held land, then the taxpayers were forced to pony up $100M or so to build a stadium. Bush pocketed millions. Yet, I assume you would allow him to vote, even though he has fleeced the taxpayers for way more than any so-called welfare cheat. Hmmm.

  5. There is the question of a ” poll tax”. Some liberal/Democrats/Progressives that will jump on this. The tact should be taken is welfare is in itself is a form of poll taxing for people voting who registered as Democrats. The cure should be a bona fide job is one of requirements to vote, period. Of course persons who are retired should be allowed to vote. A limit to people receiving welfare could be amount of time on welfare of the same as unemployment.

    • Yes, we basically pay a poll tax already. We pay taxes, so that the federal government can hand out entitlements as bribes for democrat votes. In a nut shell, we buy the votes that are cast against us and we have no choice. To me that is the worst kind of poll tax.
