4. How about draft dodgers?

You know, draft dodgers like, say, ted nugent. Should their right to vote be taken away? I believe that nugent is seeking publicity because he knows he's old and washed up so he just keeps on yapping. So maybe we should collectively ignore him.

5. And public assistance recipients should not be allowed to make political contributions.

6. I don't understand why people track on what that old drug-addled fool

says. Really, don't give him publicity.

7. If Ted didn't write this from jail or beyond the grave, then he needs to be told that he is a coward

11. He promised he'd either be dead or in prison after the election!

I'm shocked that he didn't keep his promise. Shocked, I tell you!

12. Completely and utterly absurd

I'm glad to see some negative comments on Washington Times website. That is without a doubt the dumbest commentary on voting rights that I have ever seen. The rest of the article has problems but the voting section is appalling.

13. That would mean that more RW whites would not be able to vote. Since most poor minorities don't

vote anyway, this means the Dem margin over the GOP would increase.

14. Reminds me of the public housing resident with Romney sign

You might be right about reducing the number of GOP voters. When volunteering for the Hurricane Sandy clean-up, I saw a Romney poster on a door in the projects and spoke to the resident who was a republican.

15. I mentioned this on facebook and got a bunch of good retorts to Nugent

Other categories of people who could be excluded from voting by Nugent's logic:

Nobody who has ever used a public highway
Nobody who has children in a public school
Nobody who drinks water cleaned in a public water treatment facility
Nobody who uses a public library
Nobody who works for a defense contractor
Nobody on disability
Nobody who uses a public park
