Stone me for saying so, but the poll tax was a good idea. Those who have no financial stake in the economy have nothing to lose and are dangerous voters.
Universal sufferage is NOT a good idea.
I'm certainly not going to stone you. You're right on both counts. As are the rest of your observations.
The irony, however, is that the elite is now well to the Left of the "common man" (and no, I am not a populist). A country run by state legislatures might be considerably to the Left of the country we have now.
