I see a conflict between the rights of individuals not employed by the public sector, and those who are.
Since, effectively, public sector employees have (especially in a collective sense) more influence than private sector employees.
Perhaps the problem does not lie with public sector employees, but rather with oversized unions?
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
So they have a vested interest in who wins. It's the nature of representative government that everyone has a vested interest in who wins.
By your logic, every one with an interest in a candidate would not be allowed to vote.
So that leaves WHO left over?
RIch cant vote
Public employees cant vote
Corps cant vote..........
Free Trade Doesn't Work: What Should Replace It and Why,
I view voting as a privilege and not a right, and so I believe conditions ought to be in place to ensure our government is run as effectively as possible.
I think there ought to be certain education standards that need to be met in order to vote. I think the age limit needs to be raised from 18 to 30. I think one ought to be employed in order to vote.
However, I would not exclude public employees from voting. Nothing about them being public employees incapacitates them from understanding politics or voting with a sound mind.
