When did I ever do that? I think you need to start paying closer attention to who is posting what...

Hey, yeah... funny thing huh. The people who have to take a test and earn the right to vote invariably end up being the most well-informed voters. Funny thing, that.

A Thousand Appologies! I had gotten the two posts mixed up when I was scrolling up and down to read.

Thank you for your irrelevant opinion.

After all, to force people to pay taxes without allowing them to vote would be anathema to a representative government. It would be tyrannical. It would be un-American. Quite frankly, it would be stupid. At least, IMHO.

I wish this happened for real. If I had to chose between having the right to vote ergo jury duty and such, or no taxes. I would fail every I.Q. test on purpose.
