Illbay: Are you seriously suggesting that the vast majority of junior enlisted active-duty military servicemembers, who do not make enough to pay net federal income tax (it comes out of their paychecks just like everybody else, but it all gets refunded at the end of the year) should not be allowed to vote? Shame on you, sir or madam. Personally, I'd rather see the franchise restricted to ONLY those who are serving or have served in the past. Robert Heinlein illustrated this premise in "Starship Troopers" -- the BOOK, not the ghastly Hollywood feature film they made out of it. -- Spike, military wife
