    The United States government and its election process was never supposed to be a democracy.

    Like I said allowing one to keep their own money is not a benefit and when one votes themselves so many credits that they no longer pay taxes they no longer vote.

    Living outside their means was one example but there are more.

    Why should government reward a person who will use more services with less taxes?

    The government is not supposed to be tailored to a specific groups interests.
    Creating a system where no one is favored is the best system.

    Keynes economic theory has a huge tragic flaw.
    It requires men to be angles to work.

    That is an impossibility, if you have elections paid for by government it will still be tilted heavily in favor of those who already control it.

    It still continues the illusion of free and fair.

    At the moment the privilege of voting is worthless. It is given away freely and people treat as such.

    I always hear how the average voter doesn't know squat but when you try to contain ignorance its wrong. Why should we let an uninterested, easily duped voter base move this country in a horrible direction?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
