Skin In The Game

Consider how different things would have been if we’d somehow managed to limit the voting in the 2012 elections to only those with “skin in the game.” If that election had been contained to only those who actually pay federal income tax, it would have looked quite different.

This goes a long ways towards showing how worthless and destructive the warm body franchise is to America. It also goes an equally long ways towards showing exactly why the Democrats fight so viciously against anything that might limit voting privileges.

Limit voting to only taxpayers might not be the best way of ending the warm body franchise but, as the chart clearly shows, the system we have now is a case of taxation without real representation with all the consequences that implies.
