The vote of a person that pays a lot of taxes to subsidize the government counts as much as the vote of another person that depends on government funds. These two voters have different interests and on a theoretical basis the vote of the person that CONTRIBUTES to society is more important than the person that BLEEDS the system dry and contributes NOTHING.
So you think if I make 300k my vote should count more than someone that make s 30k and that Bezos, Bill Gates and Buffet's vote should count the most? Poor Trump, he pays shit for taxes he couldn't even vote for himself!
I think this is the paranoia of the "welfare professional" talking.
Why not limit the vote of those that are poorly educated? I mean, after all there is a serious argument to be made that those that are poorly informed and poorly educated have a higher chance of making the wrong choice?
What about limit the vote of those that suffer from mental illness, depression?
Or limit the vote of alcoholics?
Or limit the vote of drug addicts?
What about women? Many of them could be on their period and be a bit edgy... they might have "hysteria" and choose the wrong candidate because of their menstruation.
How about old people? There is a good argument to limit the vote of these people... many won't live long enough... why would they get to alter the future of the country for the next 4,8, 10, 20 years. Seriously... how many 80 years old voted for Trump who put 3 scarecrows in the supreme court that will last there 50 years... why do these 80-year-old people who are not going to live until their 130's get the same vote as a 20-year-old who will have to endure this idiotic court for the next 50 year?
And of all people... you are worried about those that pay less taxes than yourself. You know... the old "welfare queen" theory. You know who doesn't pay taxes? You know who is currently living in a masion and flying on a private jet on my tax dollar? Your lovable cutie-president donald. That is the real welfare queen
