    Call yourself what you want, it's the same idea.

    That's not a response to the argument against democracy.

    Ideally no one would vote, but at least with a restricted vote you don't have the idea that the actions of government have popular support, and so government is much more limited.

    Why? When majority rules is what goes, what's going to hold them back?

    This whole poll is premised on the notion that those on welfare shouldn't be able to vote because poor people just vote themselves more benefits from the government. The problem with that notion is that the poor always have the worst turnout rates. They don't vote themselves more benefits because that would require them to actually vote which they do less than any other demographic:

    Umm, these are percentages, not raw numbers. We can't say that a lower percentage of poor people vote, therefore not as many poor as rich people vote, because there are far more poor people than rich people.

    OK- What form of Govt do you refer or prefer.
    Govts, those in power never lessen or relinquish the powers they have.
    What form of Govt. Possibly the ancient Roman version of Dictator?

    Lets cut out all the politeness and niceties. The whole premise of the poll is that people on welfare DO NOT vote for the people who writer of the OP wants elected and they are preventing the sort of right wing extremist revolution he desires. Thus the way to change that is to get rid of the right to vote for the people who vote against his interests.

    The point still stands. If the premise is that poor people just go to the polls to vote themselves more handouts from rich people, then why do only 41% of them manage to vote? Better than 60% of the middle class votes and they are by far the largest demographic.
