As long as votes can be bought with our tax payer money, or promises to deliver some special privlege to a certain few, there will be corrupt officials in charge. Our economy will suffer, our freedoms will become less and less. We will be slaves to racial, and selfish greedy motives. We need a law that says we have to pay 20% or higher in order to vote. That would eliminate those who pay nothing, but sell their votes, and the greedy who just don't want to pay their fair share. Will Congress ever pass such legislation? Not unless folks like you urge them to. So Charles contact your Representatives and urge your readers to do the same. Put our country back in the hands of the workers who pay the bills!

Wouldn't that disenfranchise a lot of retirees and students?

Aside from the fact that it is unconstitutional, what a good idea.

As each day goes by in the fiscal cliff debate, President Obama becomes stronger among the masses that view this as a fight between very rich guys against little guys barely making ends meet. Beyond the publicly fighting over tax policy, there is a battle waging in an area that businesses cherish most of all - the bottom line. It's all about greed and the notion of how much money is enough.

There is a growing consensus that profits should max out at some point and anything beyond that point is greed - the kind that hurts Americans.

I don't buy...
