The bottom line for all is we need to limit voting priveleges to only those who pay a 20% tax rate or higher. If you pay less than this, or not at all, you do not get to vote! This will make it much less likely to buy votes with a bunch of false promises, or by offering tax payers money to fetch (buy) the votes of the greedy, or illiterate. Just take away the right to vote if you don't pay taxes on earned income! Until that is done the ones who can sell the voters on free stuff is going to stay in power and the country is going to suffer the consequences. Adios amigos.
