Every week, the Tea Party Nation hosts a weekly radio program, calling itself a “home for conservatives.” Two weeks ago, Tea Party Nation President Judson Phillips hosted the program and discussed changes that he felt should be made to voting rights in the United States. He explained that the founders of the country originally put “certain restrictions on who gets the right to vote.” He continued, “One of those was you had to be a property owner. And that makes a lot of sense, because if you’re a property owner you actually have a vested stake in the community. If you’re not a property owner, you know, I’m sorry but property owners have a little bit more of a vested interest in the community than non-property owners”
One commenter to that item has an interesting idea:
I can’t think of anything that would skew the vote towards Conservatives more than that. Maybe we should restrict the vote only to those people who have been left behind economically. I think that makes a lot of sense.
But, alas no…
The party that was just re-legitimized by a mass of animated droplets of drool that not only thinks Sarah Palin is an intellectual but believes the same of Bristol is setting it sights on turning America into Edmund Blackadder’s Manchester, ca. 1800.
Marvelous thing, democracy. Just look at Manchester. Population: 60,000; electoral roll: 3.
