If you don't vote then you have no right to complain.

I think it would have to be based on the terms of the mental illness....if it is someone who is capable of understanding the consequences of the vote, then yes, by all means they should be able to vote. But if they don't even know what they are voting for, then why should they. However isn't it the right for EVERYONE to vote. With the exceptions of prisoners, felons, and such.
Actually, I believe it would turn into whatever they want it to be. They would get their foot in the door and just like everything else, run a muck.

We were getting less and less in our pockets under George Bush. It's just hell trying to return to the Clinton days.

Are you talking about taxcuts forced on Clinton by the Republicans? If we were getting less under Bush, why is there even a debate about retaining tax cuts for the middle class? Now that your Democrat led house and Senate have recesssed till after the fall elections, employers do not even have a 2011 tax withholding table.. They are afraid to either pass or raise. I made more money under Bush and paid less tax. I'm waithing to see if my taxes are going to go up or remain the same..If they remain the same, Lady Pelosi has already called them "The Obama/Pelosi Tax Cuts. Even though would only remain where they were under Bush and not be cut more. So pray tell.. Where's the beef? Whoops,, I mean Tax Cut.

So why did almost 40% vote "no" on this? WTF? How can you naysayers defend this? The measure was approved by the Kansas Senate 38-1 (the one who voted "no" changed her mind) and the House 122-0? There is absolutely NO OPPOSITION to this amendment. It has unanimous support.
I propose a new amendment to the Kansas Constitution: "Fucktards, dimwits, and nincompoops ain't allowed to vote in Kansas." That's exactly how I'd word it.

The problem is that no one wants their right to vote threatened whether they chose to vote or not.

Regardless of the extent of mental illness you are still lightyears ahead of some of the politicians already elected.

I have had ADHD since I was a child, and this amendment makes me incredibly angry. They want to take away my right to vote. Your going to tell me that someone who can graduate High School, In the top quarter of his class ,with a 3.5 GPA AND is currently attending college isn't able to make a competent decision just disgusts me to no end. I can understand that with some illness's you cant make a informed decision but ADHD is not one of those illness's.

on the other hand, your politicla machine then goes to the nuursing homes or care facilities, busses out whoever isnt violent or on life support, and coaches them how to vote, or 'assists' them under ADa compliant laws in a voting scam.
Someone who is not mentally competent, or not able to make a sound, informed rational judgement should not be allowed to vote.
So, all of you who voted for Obama....watch out.

Vote while we still can. Some people feel the need to go beyond simply voting. They become part of a national movement like the tea party when they see an out of control government moving us away from the ideals framed by our founders. Maybe the law should say no voting for institutionalized mental patients . That way there couldn't be buses pulled up to take them away to The polls.
And consider this, if they pay taxes, then they should not pay any additional taxes since they don't vote.

So I guess under your theory, exconvicts shouldn't have to pay taxes either.

Plus I imagine if they are institutionalized most probably have no income and don't pay taxes anyway.

Also, why we are on the subject of taxes, does this mean all the welfare junkies who don't pay taxes shouldn't vote and leave it up to us who do work and pay their way?

Someone needs to help me out here. Is there a law that says those with mental illness can not run for office? If there is I doubt it would be stated in such vague terms. If a law can not define who would be in violation of that law then it needs to be rewritten or done away with.
