    yeah they can decline them but they sure should have no say in how much I have to pay.

    Besides an 18 year old working at KFC, who is out of school living at home with mommy and daddy is paying more in taxes then he/she gets back. So they would get to vote, but 70 year olds on SS would not.

    A sound idea, I think not.
    works for me and those of us in the top bracket should have more votes than someone in the bottom one

    That is not based on gender, race, religion etc.

    So one who does not add value or contribute in some quantifiable form to the, shouldn't be voting.
    I would go that route but with the caveat of it being property owners and not contributers. History has shown that property owners make the best decisions since they are naturally inclined to be well versed in the issues of the day and to keep the best interests of the community in mind when voting. I like the public voting aspect as well since a person should be able to withstand any scrutiny by their neighbors regarding the way they voted.

    Again, since they are the recipients of the benefits, they should have say in what kinds of benefits they receive. What you pay is irrelevant if we are looking at this scenario as a niche issue. If you have say, then it is no longer a niche issue.

    I brought this up in another thread, so I'll do again here.
    We require those who earn a lot of money to contribute a higher percentage of their income, as a fee for earning a lot of money in this country.

    What do we require of those who do not pay anything but partake in the community safety net?

    It smacks of a double standard.

    I dont recall the US being incorporated with people being issued voting shares which they could buy to gain more voting power on how to run the US.

    That is what bribing congressmen is for

    Not at all.

    For someone to use these services we don't have any expectations, other than an arbitrary standard of poor.
    There is no requirement to even lift oneself from the use of these services.

    Yet we require those, who do not use public safety nets, to pay more.
