Since schools and public services are funded through property taxes, why should a renter have any say in how or who spends my money? Would also give incentive for perfectly healthy young meth heads the opportunity to do something constructive with their lives and die for their country.

You have me confused with all of your family members, go get yourself a pepsi with the foodstamps you are provided with while enjoying the airconditioning and HUD trailer you live in with your mom and come back when you have thought of a comment that points toward your poor raising , lower class lifestyle and lack of education.

The lake man told me one time that everybody that rented and was on HUD were deadbeats that was why they had to come to him at world fin because they had already beat everyone else and then he could charge what he wanted he just always had to run down the companys money each month so I'm sure this is right

In a couple years when you start high school, you will notice that you feel inferior to the kids whose parents have jobs and have taught them responsibility and respect, Thats because you are inferior to them.
And 5-6 years later when you are making the life changing decision to drop out of high school and pursue your career as a welfare and foodstamp recipient, please dont register to vote because your just not smart enough to understand how the process works..but who am I kidding , you'll be a convicted felon by then anyways . Probably for stealing weedeaters or smurffing meth percursors

1790
Only white male adult property-owners have the right to vote.
1810
Last religious prerequisite for voting is eliminated.
1850
Property ownership and tax requirements eliminated by 1850. Almost all adult white males could vote.
1855
Connecticut adopts the nation's first literacy test for voting. Massachusetts follows suit in 1857. The tests were implemented to discriminate against Irish-Catholic immigrants.
1870
The 15th Amendment is passed. It gives former slaves the right to vote and protects the voting rights of adult male citizens of any race.
1889
Florida adopts a poll tax. Ten other southern states will implement poll taxes.
1890
Mississippi adopts a literacy test to keep African Americans from voting. Numerous other states—not just in the south—also establish literacy tests. However, the tests also exclude many whites from voting. To get around this, states add grandfather clauses that allow those who could vote before 1870, or their descendants, to vote regardless of literacy or tax qualifications.
1913
The 17th Amendment calls for members of the U.S. Senate to be elected directly by the people instead of State Legislatures.
1915
Oklahoma was the last state to append a grandfather clause to its literacy requirement (1910). In Guinn v. United States the Supreme Court rules that the clause is in conflict with the 15th Amendment, thereby outlawing literacy tests for federal elections.
1920
The 19th Amendment guarantees women's suffrage.
1924
Indian Citizenship Act grants all Native Americans the rights of citizenship, including the right to vote in federal elections.
1944
The Supreme Court outlaws "white primaries" in Smith v. Allwright (Texas). In Texas, and other states, primaries were conducted by private associations, which, by definion, could exclude whomever they chose. The Court declares the nomination process to be a public process bound by the terms of 15th Amendment.
1957
The first law to implement the 15th amendment, the Civil Rights Act, is passed. The Act set up the Civil Rights Commission—among its duties is to investigate voter discrimination.
1960
In Gomillion v. Lightfoot (Alabama) the Court outlaws "gerrymandering."
1961
The 23rd Amendment allows voters of the District of Columbia to participate in presidential elections.
1964
The 24th Amendment bans the poll tax as a requirement for voting in federal elections.
1965
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., mounts a voter registration drive in Selma, Alabama, to draw national attention to African-American voting rights.
1965
The Voting Rights Act protects the rights of minority voters and eliminates voting barriers such as the literacy test. The Act is expanded and renewed in 1970, 1975, and 1982.
1966
The Supreme Court, in Harper v. Virginia Board of Elections, eliminates the poll tax as a qualification for voting in any election. A poll tax was still in use in Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, and Virginia.
1966
The Court upholds the Voting Rights Act in South Carolina v. Katzenbach.
1970
Literacy requirements are banned for five years by the 1970 renewal of the Voting Rights Act. At the time, eighteen states still have a literacy requirement in place. In Oregon v. Mitchell, the Court upholds the ban on literacy tests, which is made permanent in 1975. Judge Hugo Black, writing the court's opinion, cited the "long history of the discriminatory use of literacy tests to disenfranchise voters on account of their race" as the reason for their decision.
1971
The 26th amendment sets the minimum voting age at 18.
1972
In Dunn v. Blumstein, the Supreme Court declares that lengthy residence requirements for voting in state and local elections is unconstitutional and suggests that 30 days is an ample period.
1995
The Federal "Motor Voter Law" takes effect, making it easier to register to vote.
2003
Federal Voting Standards and Procedures Act requires states to streamline registration, voting, and other election procedures.

Which words were to big for you to understand? By looking at your sentence structure and judging by your lack of thought , Im guessing all of them. And I didn't say I was better than "everyone" just a little twirp who took exception to my opinion, and I "am" better than him/her. Also, I appreciate that you think I know everything , but once again you are mistaken. I only know that I know more than you and your foolish little friend. If you think "god made no man or women better then the other." Then not only do you know nothing of God you know nothing of men and women.
One final thought, try proof reading your comment before posting it, you write at about a 5th grade level and understanding your gibberish is nearly impossible because there is no Drunken Pillbilly in Google Translator

For someone who isnt really very bright, you amazingly did very well at grasping the point of my original post, If a person does not have the ability to manage their own life and finances how or why should they have any say in how other peoples money is spent? As for your feeble attempt to insult me, go for it. Its amusing.

Why are you people so hung up on not being as "good " or others being " better " than you? Is the hard working father of 2 who goes to his job daily to provide for his family only equal to the dead beat father of 5 who does nothing to better the lives of his children? Is the mother who gives her kids chips and mountain dew as lunch everyday as "good " as the mother who takes the time to make a healthy meal. Just because Thomas Jefferson said all men were created equal, doesn't make it true. Ronald Reagan said catsup was a vegetable, Bill Clinton said he didn't have sex with that woman. If you can't think of something that makes one person better than another, then your thought process isn't functioning properly.
