In the above sense, your right to vote has long been stripped from you.
Now relax and have a Pepsi. Or Coke. Your choice.

I do think that there are tiny changes that could be made to the interpretation of the law that would greatly impact what it means to vote.

Be creative. Lobowolf seems to think that the only way his vote could be undermined is by taking it away.

Tipping the scales could be a lot easier than that.


Of course. Like the current plan to allocate electoral votes by congressional districts won rather than by the total number of votes. In that scenario, the election would be won by whoever did the best gerrymandering.

Or, as was tried in the last election, make it as difficult and inconvenient to vote as possible, particularly in districts whose demographics favor the opponent.

I only questioned your statement because you seemed to make a distinction between the right to vote and the "right to elect."

When I was a cop it was always interesting to me what exactly people thought their "rights" were and where they were set forth.

I do not say it is a good thing or bad but we have far fewer rights than most believe.

A very common misunderstanding involves the freedom of speech. Nearly every day you see someone on a private forum claiming that deleting their posts violates that freedom. It doesn't.

Freedom of speech simply prevents the GOVERNMENT from regulating speech, particularly speech that is critical of government. It has nothing to do with private organizations or privately owned media or websites.

Another funny thing that many people seem to believe is that if you ask an undercover officer if he is a cop, he has to answer you truthfully or else it is entrapment. Another myth as many have discovered to their detriment.

I'd be interested, Danny, to hear what other so-called "rights" people told you they had when you were a cop.

Good thoughts,

Bob

Only because I'm trying to hone in on what people think their rights are. It seemed like at the time 'right to elect' was a better way of describing what people think their rights are, since Lobowolf seemed convinced that he would never be turned away from a voting booth.
