I heard an idea this AM (to be attributed after this thread has run its course and is dying a natural cyber-death).
The idea goes like this:
Voting is a right and an obligation for all legal voters (please withhold comments on this point)
If you do not vote in an election the following will occur:
First Failure: A Fine, say $100
Second Failure: A Fine, say $250, and some "Public Service".
Third Failure: You lose your citizenship. You lose no rights and obligations other than you must immediately apply for a VISA and obtain a green card, or risk deportation.
A lot of details remain, but what do you say about the idea?
Yea or Nay, say you?
Moderators, if I've pushed the forum rules too far, please delete. Voting rights are certainly similar to RKBA, however tenuous the logic behind the connection to this great Forum.
