    Voting is every citizen's duty!

    Why do we continue to frame voting as a right?  When I read the Constitution I see that our government serves at the will of its citizens, demonstrated by learning about and voting for our choice of candidates to represent us in federal, state and local governments.  In other words, voting is really one of the duties of citizenship.  It should not be framed as a right.  It is really a duty.  For government to be really representative, all eligible voters need to cast a ballot.  This obligation needs to be made easy — not hard.

    To carry it to the extreme, if no one  is allowed to vote we have a dictatorship — a self serving government of suppression.  I remember my excitement when I cast my first ballot at age 21 for Adlai Stevenson.  To my recollection I have never missed voting.  But then I am Caucasian and no one ever tried to stop me!!
