    and its the shareholders of a corporation and market demand that should determine executive compensation
    im very aware of that but sometimes I think you can be very blunt and it can come off as very harsh to the lower class, probably not intentional but sometimes thats what it looks like.

    I think everyone should have to earn the privilege of voting and running for public office.
    Not through taxes or money'd payments but through community service.
    in any electoral campaign, the politicians try to convince the people to go and vote. It's in interest of both (competitors into a campaign) to get the highest number of voters. They please the people to go all and vote.

    Think about what we do with a tool like that. We will just push people to don't care at all about the vote.

    Vote's value is holy.



    Besides it would be consider as anti-voting if poor people wouldn't be able to vote.
    Anti-voting presence is found in South Africa. Everytime there are elections, the poor people lead an social movement, a campaign called "No Land, No house, No Vote"

    another idiotic post . Parasites are those who demand others pay for them, being poor has no relevance
