The only way to solve this problem is to institute a poll tax. If you are not paying taxes, you should not be able to vote unless you are in a very few categories of people, e.g. retired, disabled, etc.

You ignoramus!! Do you know how many people that live in parts of this country that cannot find a job?? They are 99ed out. They don't even count in the unemployment numbers they kink and then spew out every month. They may be getting 200$ a month in food stamps. Is it OK if they have something to eat with you?? We want to make sure you are OK with that. Then we have the underemployed, the ones that have college degrees but are working in retail somewhere. The ones that make 8$ an hour and pay their babysitter 4$ an hour.
We have a problem in this country. The middle class has been wiped out. It has been a 20 year progression of free trade, off shore bank accounts ,and the transfer of wealth off of this continent.
This crap just didn't happen overnight. It really kicked into high gear during the Reagan/Bush administration. It has been a slow methodical erosion of our once robust manufacturing sector.
But, everyone is seriously in a trance. I have seen people admiring George W recently. It is a testament to the absolute control the MSM has on the population. I just saw them 2 days ago trot out Karl Rove.... Are you frikken kidding me. The worst slime ball ever and he is being touted as some sort of political genius. The one that had to make an appearance 5 times in front of a Grand Jury to try to save his butt from a perjury indictment, but gave up his good pal Scooter?? This is just bread and circuses....Really.
