Can someone here enlighten me on this matter? Are there rules as to which of these folks can vote and under which circumstances? I know that Dear Leader ticked off the families and friends of Special Olympians and the disabled in general last night, but will many of the MR community be able to vote against him? Forgive me if my language isn't as PC as some would like, as I don't play that game. Thanks!
I don’t know if they can, but given some of the people holding elected office in this country they apparently do.
Based upon the results of the last election the answer is pretty clear.
Yes. They are known as Congressmen and Senators.
Well how in hell do you think we got the messiah????
Probably not, but that never stopped ACORN and Democrats from giving their families absentee ballots.
Of course—how else can one explain BHO?
>>Yes. They are known as Congressmen and Senators.
And the President and Vice President.
I heard Hussein Obama ALSO called hydroencephaly victims WATERHEADS! What a JERK!

How do you think that Obama was elected?
How else could Obama win?
I bet if they had all the information they wouldn’t vote for Obama.
Here’s a moldy oldie on that topic:
“Georgia state officials have begun an investigation into Primus Industries and the alleged voter fraud committed by one or more of its employees. Jack Justice attends the adult day care provided by Primus for mentally-challenged individuals, and one or more Primus aides took them to an early voting event without permission from their families. Once in the booth, the aide cast the ballot for Barack Obama over Justices protestations:”

Sure, and they can vote just as often as their ACORN representative will let them.
I think their holding office is directly attributable to "flat-liners" or the mentally-deranged and not the mentally retarded.
about 53% just proved that they can.
Even if they can't actually decide for themselves their keeper, who is a social worker or some other govt. paid employee, will not vote to plug the teat off of which they live.
Behind closed doors, when the lefties think no one else is listening, they speak among themselves and state quite openly that mentally handicapped babies should be killed in the delivery room and they ain’t kidding!
I knew, before even opening this thread, I would see this true and exact comment. ;^)
I think your question is a good one, and the posts here are downright funny.
I’d like to know the answer to your question.
And I think it’s important to distinguish mentally retarded. My daughter is mentally intellectually disabled with an IQ of 70, and she can vote. She also hold two jobs and is working on her associates degree in photography.
