    sadly Turtle is using the idea of connecting how much you pay in taxes to how many votes he believes one should get. He seems to want a corporate shareholder voting system for America.

    I have no doubt such a anti-American scheme is being floated in the circles of ALEC in New Orleans this very week.
    Your position is confusing

    is it anti American even though it was the rule when this country was founded? Or is it anti american because the suffrage was extended? or is it anti American because if you don't like it it is so?

    Your position is anti-American because you would give in to the wet dream of ALEC and allow corporate principles to subvert, ravish and rape American democratic values and procedures. Your position does not appear to actually recognize what political, economic and social conditions are in 21st century America as it exists today. Telling me about the Founders is irrelevant unless its a history lesson as to the way it was back in 1787 when we were a nation of 4 million farmers and small merchants in a small backwater isolated nation.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
