Isn’t this really the attitude of, oh, about 24% of the people in this country? There have always been those, and there will always be those that think decisions should be made by people who have something at stake like a potentially large tax bill, and if you just let everybody have an equal voice the small stake holders will just steal from the large stakeholders, that’s why corporations are not one shareholder one vote, they are one share one vote, he who owns the most rules.

Those who agree with that position have an easy choice they can vote Republican, the rest of us have to figure out a way to beat them, or get rich trying.
