    by preventing non landed people from voting the founders kept most of the parasites from voting. Of course back then, we didn't create many parasites and the conditions were not conducive an environment for them to grow or survive
    People who makes millions off the backs of those who they pay $7 an hour are definitely bigger parasites.

    folks who sit on the couch all day, making money off the hard labor of their workers, are indeed parasites.

    do you REALLY believe that anyone in 1787 who did not own land, was a parasite and contributed nothing to society?

    Yawn, lower wage jobs are the most common jobs around and they have to be filled by someone. By that standard, that means you think most of the country should have to work for menial wages. It's good to know whose side you are on.

    are you saying someone who works for minimum wage because that is the best job they can find is worth more than what he is paid?
