just as predicted, immigrate and fast-track to the
vote, bought and paid for. -- j

    The solution to the problem is simple, yet elegant. New York has always spent quite a bit of effort to tell the world that it is a "Global Hub". Well here's their chance. Let's throw NYC out of the United States. That's right...throw it out. It can be a citizen of the world as it proclaims. However, since this global citizen is occupying space in our country, it can pay taxes and rent. A LOT of taxes and rent. Don't like it? Pack up kith and kin and leave.

    They will sell your birthright for a vote and a few tax dollars. If you are an immigrant and came here of your own free will legally, you are aware of the circumstances. Get in line and get citizenship. Then get in line and vote.

    The article says it would extend the vote only to *legal* residents.

    It doesn't mention illegals voting, although maybe the law would somehow make it easier for illegals to vote. The article doesn't say.

      well, I voted with only a driver's license last fall,
      and illegals are getting drivers' licenses, so there
      is just one logical step left ... illegals voting with
      their drivers' licenses as identification....... -- j
