  •  Eligible till absolutely proven ineligible (9+ / 0-)

    The franchise should be granted on that basis, and no other.

    The laws promoted throughout states under GOP control all put the shoe on the other foot - ineligible to vote till absolutely positively proven eligible.

    Which has always seemed to me to be an inversion of the common legal maxim, "innocent till proven guilty."

    Apply the logic of that commonly cited legal test to the franchise and you get, "eligible till proven ineligible."

      you're not that simple...

      I'm paraphrasing, but Einstein said the truth should probably be simple enough for a child to understand, and that any fool could make things more complex.  

      If you starve the middle class, whose gonna pay for your crap?
