Take it to the Supreme Court
Posted by: McQ on Friday, June 13, 2008

From The Moderate Voice:
An undercurrent of many foreign press articles about the U.S. election is the unfairness of the fact that while American policies dramatically affect people outside of the United States, those very people are unable to directly influence those we elect.
Or said another way, it's just not fair that foreigners can't vote for the president of the US given the influence the US has over their lives.

Hey, I'm serious: take it to the Supreme Court - they seem rather inclined to grant non-citizens the same rights as citizens given the Gitmo decision. Who knows, there may be another 5-4 in there somewhere [/sarcasm].

That this might happen terrifies me...

I think foreigners should have a voice in the US elections - just as soon as they start paying US taxes, serving on juries and serving in the US military.

The world may be changing very quickly, but I dare say that for at least the next twenty years, those outside the United States will continue to lament not having a voice in choosing the tenant of the White House, who will remain the most powerful person in the world.
Let’s give this a whirl and see whether they still lament not having a vote for PotUS: "Portugal, the 51st state."

"At least the next 20 years"???

Try forever, numbn*ts. Even the Eurpoe-loving left here won’t do it.

But I’ll tell you what....you let US pick your leaders, and then we’ll talk.

So who elected Usama bin Laden, Muammar Abu Minyar al-Qadhafi, or Mao Zedong ?

I don’t remember voting (for or) against him.

I want my MTV vote.
