Skip to comments.Readers' Comments: A Welfare Check and a Voting Card
Posted on 08/10/2010 4:26:57 AM PDT by proxy_user
Well, the new York Times has finally done it! They want to register all welfare recipients to vote, and every single reader comment is against their position. Some samples:
"Well this is just wonderful Maybe everyone should quit trying to find employment and just go down to the blasted welfare office so government can give you a check to make sure you vote for corrupt and incompetent Democrats
"I don't understand why the federal government doesn't just pay welfare recipients for voting. If you vote Democrat, you get a check. If you vote Republican, you get nothing. Why not just be more direct about it?
"It's just wonderful that those populations are being encouraged to vote. But the job isn't finished: why not have the border patrol hand out voter registration cards to illegal immigrants, so they can arrange to vote by absentee ballot?

If you have a NYTimes account, go to the URL and start recommending the comments. I want to see 500 reader recommendations on each one.
The replies are awesome! People are pissed, and these libBots keep pushing these idiot schemes. The push-back is quite heartening.
I used to loathe going to the liberal papers and reading their tripe, now I love it!!!! Comment sections are my favorite, the people are pissed!!!!! What a difference from a year ago! hahahahaha
Pass a drug test, pass a reading competency test = you can vote.
In Maryland (so as to allow welfare rats to maintain their dignity) they are given a “Freedom” card. This is a welfare check appearing as a credit card. The LIBs are soooooo intelligent. I am a cromagnon idiot.
It’s not like their plan is working...since you and I, and everyone else know what the freedom card is for.
...you would think that the NY Times/WaPo would read the comments they get...then maybe they’d have a clue as to why they’re losing money.
Democrats are so obvious, amnesty for illegals, signing up welfare recipients to vote. Don't forget they claim giving a welfare recipient a dollar stimulates the economy by $2. They really mean 2 Democrat votes.
Since it is online, they probably think this is just a gang of conservative trolls posting, and not their real readership.
I do and I did. 'Rec'd' them all :-)
We have something similar here in GA, it looks like a debit card with a Giant Peach on it.
This is why only those who actually PAY TAXES should be allowed to vote!!
Imagine a country in which people demand the opportunity to pay taxes!!!
It could happen.
But, not here.
