    Good to see you again.

    Interesting to see the board has changed its format slightly.
    Yeah after about one and a half days of moving servers and tweaking the forum, and database failures after that for a few hours. I think its worth it though. But damn mods cant do anything properly.

    fyi Re: People: Dumb?

    Unfortunately, yes.

    The proof can be seen in how people vote. Only a small minority vote for people and issues that represent the essence of a civilized society--limited government and individual liberty.

    What is even more disturbing is that the less intelligent and less responsible people are outbreeding the more intelligent and more responsible people. What is causing this? As you have probably guessed, it is the gross overabundance of social-welfare programs.

    Eventually, if trends continue for several more generations, the dwindling minority of intelligent producers will not be able to sustain the exploding masses of parasitic welfare and big government consumers.

    As a result, civilization will collapse. We might become a wild animal "Planet of the Apes."

    Only the majority of them

    And regular DP posters are definitily not represented in the majority.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
