  • Non-taxpayers should be allowed to vote.

    Yes, non-taxpayers should be allowed to vote. Voting is for everyone and if we start limiting the voting process because someone did not pay taxes that year, then we are really devaluing the voting process in America. It is your right to vote or not so lets not start putting restrictions on that.

  • Yes, everyone should have the right to vote

    I do not believe that we should limit who is able to vote based on whether or not they have paid taxes for that year. People often have complicated financial issues involving divorces, medical emergencies, etc. Limited people to only be allowed to vote if their taxes are paid is completely ridiculous and unreasonable.

  • Socialism is theft.

    Stopping socialism and big government is easy. Amend the US Constitution and stipulate that each citizen gets 1 vote for $10K they pay in taxes. That's fair and proportionate to the contribution of funds. Would fix the Left's desire to penalize those who are more successful than others (which destroys innovation), while also repairs the unjust system that allows those who don't contribute, a say in how public funds are used.

  • Taxpayers suffer when non-taxpayers place idiots in power.

    Depending on where you live, some of the tax payers are a minority whilst non-taxpayers are a majority - with that being said, why should the people who are paying the government be ruled by a party they don't support? After all, it is them who is keeping the country afloat.

  • It's pure logic

    What does government do? Taxing and spending tax.
    It's like a bunch of colleagues put their money together for a LOTO ticket weekly, well Bob of accounting didn't risk 5 bucks. It turns out these guys won a small amount this week, you don't share it with Bob who didn't participate, right?
    If one doesn't contribute to the pool, he/she/(%all_other_categories%) shouldn't have a say on how to spend it.

  • No, with excetions

    You only vote if you file a tax return. You may not owe or pay, any taxes. Indeed you may file to obtain a refund of taxes withheld, but you have paid some taxes and have the right to vote. No voter fraud possible; every filer has a Social Security Number.
    I believe there are too many voters who are living on government handouts. Their votes only compound the waste of tax money.

  • It's not a restriction on free speech.

    The people who support their government and it's spending should have influence on what is being done with the money. Everyone else is perfectly capable of expressing their thoughts and opinions through sites like Debate.Org or Reddit therefor limiting voters to the taxpayers is not a restriction of free speech. The answer should be more nuanced than this so more conversation is needed.

  • No with exceptions

    If you do not contribute to our society then
    You get no say. Exemptions, veterans and those who have paid there dues in the past.
    (Legitimately disabled and elderly). Obesity and drug addiction are not legitimate disabilities. I would consider it theft if I wrote my checks using somebody elses account!

  • Negative. There's no basis for a non-taxpayer's claim to authority concerning spending.

    If 3 people are going to see a movie and only two of them have their own money, should the third one get to pick the film? An overwhelming majority of public policy has to do with the distribution of tax revenue. Simply put, that money doesn't belong to those that don't pay taxes.

  • Direct Beneficiaries of welfare are compromised by apparent bias

    Citizens receiving welfare from the government and do not pay taxes are not independent, similar to minors in a family. If someone is not paying taxes he or she is not contributing to the wealth of their country and deserves no influence as to how the country's resources are administered. They have no skin in the game.

  • When the people can vote themselves money the nation falls

    If you are not able to produce proof that you worked and paid taxes during the previous term of the seat you contributed nothing to society. If you don't contribute to society you shouldn't have a say in how it's run.

    Exceptions; Veterans Disability, Social Security, property owners in good tax standing, spouse of someone who has contributed. As those people are unable or are assistance someone so they can contribute.
