Fischer: Only Property Owners Should Vote

Fischer: Only Property Owners Should Vote January 18, 2014

Bryan Fischer delivered his usual inane screed, saying that we should go back to the old days when only those who owned property were allowed to vote.

“You know, back in the day, in the colonial period,” Fischer said, “you have to be a landowner, a property owner to be eligible to vote and I don’t think that’s a bad idea. And the reason is very simple: if somebody owns property in a community, they’re invested in the community. If they’re renters, they’re going to be up and gone; they could leave the next day … [P]eople that are not property owners – it’s like people that pay no taxes, they have no skin in the game. They don’t care about the same things that somebody does who is rooted in the community”

Gee Bryan, does owning slaves count as property? I mean, since you want to go back to the colonial period and all.
