Once again, common sense has been destroyed by our corrupt government. The question is: Who should be allowed to vote?
Did you know that originally only land owners were allowed to vote? That’s because it was their money that was going into the pot of money on which the government was going to run. They did not want anyone who had not contributed to the pot having a vote on how it was going to be spent. Doesn’t that make sense? I certainly don’t want my neighbors having a say on how I am going to spend my income. Neither do I want anyone who hasn’t paid taxes into the government having any say on how that money is going to be spent.
Voting is a privilege that has to be earned. It is not a God-given right of existence. We need notary publics at the polls checking people’s ID to make sure they are who they say they are. Otherwise, what is the point?
I fear it has now become a joke of who can stuff the ballot box the best without getting caught.
