Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you.
Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire.
You have laid up treasure in the last days.
Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts.
You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.
You have condemned and murdered the righteous person. He does not resist you.
On the other hand I think some voters SHOULD be suppressed.
Legal voting age should be raised to 25.
This is the BIGGER problem in this nation is the young progressive liberals who are taught by our liberal colleges and media that the rich and republicans are bad and that hating the rich and "helping" the poor is good.
Why should we want these people to vote?
67-year-old Leroy Switlick is angry.
He's angry because he's made three separate trips to the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office in Milwaukee to get a photo ID so he can vote in next month's general election.
Each time he's come away empty-handed.
Leroy has voted in every presidential election for more than 40 years, but Wisconsin's new voter ID law means that even though he's registered, he will not be able to cast his ballot without showing photo ID such as a driving licence or passport.
"It's silly," he says.
Switlick, who has been partially sighted for most of his life, never learned to drive - and so never had a driver's license. He was not previously required to have a state-issued ID for any other purpose.
"The first question the man behind the counter asked me was 'Can I see your photo ID?' Now if I'm coming to get a photo ID, how can I already have a photo ID?"
Each time he visited the DMV, he took a satchel full of documents including his birth certificate.
But the DMV never actually examined his papers.
On the second visit, the official he had been told to ask for simply didn't show up; and on the third occasion, accompanied by a lawyer, he was told the computers were down, though officials at DMV's head office told his lawyer later there had been no record of a computer problem on that day.
When you're 18, you can enlist in the militaryand ;possibly die for your country. In times of war, you can be drafted at 18, quite possibly against your will, and die for your country. If you're old enoough to die for your country, you're old enough to have a say in the running of it.It's really very simple.
By the way, the both of them have given Billions, not millions, I said Billions with a B to charity. They do this because they are caring and compassionate. Everyone has their own moral or religious beliefs. I'll just say helping the poor is caring and it is good. Helping the poor is also the Christian thing to do.
Fighting for $15 minimum wage? The next thing is $20 then even more. What's the logic in that? Don't they know that when minimum wage rise, so does everything else? A big mac that cost $3 will cost a lot more than $3 if the minimum wage is $15. Lower income people ultimately aren't any better off.
That's the number one thing I always hear. Let's not forget. Military isn't a democracy -- it's a total dictatorship by ranks. So when you are 18, you get drafted and defend your country, but you make no decisions as to battle strategies. So by your argument, if you are old enough to die for your nation, you should have a say in how to defend your nation, but you don't. You listen to what your Generals tell you. If they say you run towards the mini-gun, you do that. Let's not forget Army Generals are NOT elected, they are selected by experience. Same thing as what I am saying, and what Plato have said, that is, major decisions should be left to those who have experience, not someone with all the idealism
If you are not making battle strategy decisions, why would that matter? Of course you have to follow the orders of your superior officers and generals, but why would that matter?
Why am I not surprised that this call for voter suppression is coming from an apparent uberconservative?

But not drink or purchase alcohol. Old enough to die, but only sober.
The real goal of voter suppression is to keep Black people from voting. That is why the focus is on limiting the time when you can vote, limiting polling locations in certain areas and inventing hoops for that is difficult for minorities to jump through.
That doesn't change the fact that a lot of the base of the Republican party is motivated by the desire to keep what they see as White American culture as the as the dominant culture in the US.
