Here's a thought.
I usually think of Republicans as interested in limiting the franchise for select groups of voters
. But in a move which -- and here I have to give the guy credit -- really does seem to look beyond divisive racial categories, Alan Keyes has called for all Americans, regardless of race, creed, etc. etc. etc., to lose their right to vote for senators
Let's also note that this seems like an exceptionally brave move for a man currently running for senate under the current democratic rules.
In any case, can we get Sen. George Allen, head
of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, to go on record about whether he thinks this is a good idea? Or how about the president?
Perhaps also we can get a response on Keyes' proposal for slavery reparations in the form of a two generation federal tax holiday
(with the exception of payroll taxes) for all African-Americans?
