Because there are so many who've become freeloaders in our once-free country, it seems the only right way to correct course it to look back to our founding fathers and the original principles that brought about freedom.
One of those principles which became law was that only those with PROPERTY worth protecting should even have the RIGHT TO
That was the way to insure only those with a "skin in the game" could have any voice in saying how those stakes got allocated.
the country was founded, in most states only those with real property
(land) or sufficient wealth for taxation were permitted to vote.
A few exceptions are in order to this rule:
1. If you've fought in the military for our country, you know what it's like to fight for a cause greater than yourself. You deserve the right to vote.
2. All voters must first pass a test, call it Freedom 101, and must retake the test every 4 years to ensure they know what the constitution of the U.S. says and what it means. Dito to elected officials, only their test should be every 2 years and should be much more intense (call it the 500-level test).
Billy says to Dale: "the ship we're on is sinking" to which Dale
replies, "who cares, it's not OUR ship."
We've got too many on board a sinking ship who don't care, because, after all it's not their ship: they don't own anything worth protecting or fighting for.
