After the fall, when we re-do the Constitution, can we make it so that only those who pay property taxes and those in the military or have a DD 214, can vote?

Ann Coulter was right.....we have to end women voting.

The decline of America started with the enactment of Amendment(s) 16, 17, & 19

Obozo says the tax code favors the Fat Cats. Really? Hey, Stupid! You and your buddies are the ones who wrote it, so why are you so PO'ed? Also, you Dems controlled both houses every year but 9 since 1951, so look in the mirror and punch yourself in the face.

My solution: (yeah, I know these don't have a prayer...)

1. Throw the entire tax code out the window and replace it with a flat tax. (The Fair Tax has a few flaws.) Set the rate at 17% (a la Friedman) for individuals and 15% for corporations. Now everyone has something in the game.

2. A current events test and income tax payment to vote. If you don't pay any taxes, you don't vote. And if you're not smart enough to discuss issues, you shouldn't vote.

3. Recognize that the purpose of the Federal gov't is the policing of property rights and provide social overhead capital. (Charles Beard's An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution). Everything else (EPA, SBA, FEMA, Freddie and Fannie, etc.) is history. The gov't should NEVER compete with private industry.

This would be a start. Me? I'd make a horrible President, but I'd be a pretty damn good dictator...

Works for me. But you have to dismantle the Federal Reserve while you're at it. Fiat money and a debtor society is something our children will want to avoid in the rebuild.
