The Fifteenth Amendment states that: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not bedenied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.”

.

It did not say: The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by anyone, for any reason or on any basis, whatsoever.”

.

Thus, the Fifteenth Amendment was not created to unconditionally protect everyone’s right to vote. For example, ‘poll taxes’ could be placed, which required one to pay to vote, thus this was used as a tactic to keep out those who could not afford to pay, such as those who are poor and minorities.

The right to vote should be an equal right to everyone, everywhere.The restriction of voting rights has alway sbeen done out of self interest of those ‘in control’ wanting to remain in positions of power and ‘privilege’ at the expense of others, which is, of course, unacceptable. It also is quite stupid, when one consider that to attempt to ‘suppress’ others, is only going to result in outbursts, such as the recent riots have shown. I we simply stop suppressing and oppressing, and establish equal living for all to have a dignified life, everyone will be satisfied, and there will be no outbursts, no fighting, rebelling, etc. Simple Common Sense. Investigate Equal Money – it’s the Key to Peace on Earth.
