Constitutional Originalism Antonin Scalia Can Get Behind
Tea Party Nation prez Judson Phillips plays Amendment-Repeal Bingo, fills his card:
The Founding Fathers originally said, they put certain restrictions on who gets the right to vote. It wasn’t you were just a citizen and you got to vote. Some of the restrictions, you know, you obviously would not think about today. But one of those was you had to be a property owner. And that makes a lot of sense, because if you’re a property owner you actually have a vested stake in the community. If you’re not a property owner, you know, I’m sorry but property owners have a little bit more of a vested interest in the community than non-property owners.
Surprised? Oh, come now. It was only a matter of time.
