Eventually we are going to have to reconsider the concept of universal suffrage. I realize we are nowhere near ready for such a debate - perhaps not in our lifetimes. At some point societies are going to have to figure out a way to prevent dependent people, who produce little to nothing, from trotting off to the polls to vote themselves more freebies. If modern nations have collectively decided government is responsible for providing a social safety net, the only way to prevent that from spinning out of control is to ensure that those paying the taxes determine just how much government charity they wish to provide. The left would fight this tooth and nail though because it is through these dependent voters that they gain and retain power, so this type of system will only grow out of a massive societal collapse.
Well said. And that’s the way I feel about it. Another reply to my post by another “freeper” on this thread is just ignorant and FOS. It’s not about the Constitution. It’s about voter fraud and freeloaders voting themselves “free stuff”.
