Thread Name: BS: 'Stripping of Citizenship'??
Subject: RE: BS: 'Stripping of Citizenship'??
Um, MrRed, your comment asked specifically about *the death penalty* depriving of citizenship. I hold that no, it doesn't.

Putting someone in prison deprives them of liberty, not of citizenship. Even if they can't vote they remain citizens.

Folks who choose not to vote are not deprived of citizenship, they are failing in their civic dity.
