I agree! I'll make the sacrifice that the current reality dictates, right after I see them swinging from a tree. The criminals must be punished first before we talk about rehab for their victims.

Quote from oldtime:

you're so stupid you aren't even worth talking to, but please tell me how does a guy get a government benefit for running businesses into the ground and reorganizing them? Don't even bother answering because you never know what you are talking about.
You're too stupid to understand. Idiot fucks like yourself keep the wheels greased.

Wrong! Your vote is meaningless when the choice is criminal one, or criminal two. Voters have no voice and haven't had for decades.
That is simply not true, and another example of voters (namely, you) evading their own responsibilities. There have been many candidates for office willing to tell the voters the blunt truth and what needs to be done. Many have even been well-funded.

Unfortunately, voters have consistently rejected them.

To be perfectly blunt, attitudes such as yours are a prime reason this great democratic experiment is mired in economic morass.

You aren't the solution, you are the problem.

Until we can actually have qualified "voters", "we" are doomed to repeat the same mistakes for generations to come.

In a perfect world, only those with some "skin in the game" would be afforded the privilege of voting. Either verifiable income and employment, a property owner, etc...

Absolutely no public sector employee would be given the right to vote as this is the BIG problem. As the percentage of job growth in the past two decades emerged from the public sector, it only stands to reason that these voters will continually vote for even more government and more spending.

And lastly, as controversial as it may seem, I'm not that crazy about giving women the right to vote either. The percentage of women that I've ever met that will vote based upon a candidate's political platform is probably about 10%. The vast majority will vote upon not just the candidate's appearance, but also the candidate's stance on all of the "fringe issues" that have absolutely no business being a part of the national dialogue.
