Another example of why Democracy is always doomed. Totally predictable. People are naturally greedy, if you give everyone the “right” to vote, they majority will simply vote themselves the national treasury.

This is why our founders (some of the greatest men that ever lived) created a REPUBLIC. With only a limited few given the PRIVILEDGE to vote (land owning men).

NOTHING can fix this country now except a new revolution and recreation as a republic again with voting limited to a few who have EARNED the privilege.

Of course more thought will have to be put into what would entitle people to vote. I don’t think “landowner” would work today. I can almost see the liberals now selling one square inch of land to every moron in the projects, just to bypass this restriction.
