Citizens have a right to cast a vote - or not

Just this last week the Clarion had an opinion letter from one of the Kenai’s longtime residents which suggested that voters should not be allowed to decide not to vote. This opinion also suggested that if you don’t vote then you should not be allowed to get your PFDs or have any other rights as Americans and Alaskans. What’s next? Are we going to see this mindset spread to the point that voters should not be allowed to pick the candidates that you must all vote for or else? I don’t like this new democracy with its forced mandatory freedoms for a select few voters.

What say you about this new mandatory democracy?
