“Voting ought to be a privilege reserved for informed, grown-up, contributing members of society. If you aren’t paying taxes, then you shouldn’t have any say in where tax money, other people’s money, goes.
“And if you are woefully ignorant of even the most basic facts of our system, then you shouldn’t be able to — by wandering into a voting booth, or worse, by mail from your home — muddy the waters by randomly casting a ballot ignorantly with no idea of what you’re even doing.
“We don’t let people drive on highways that way, why should we let them drive the republic that way? The consequences are just as dire if not considerably more so.” – Matt Walsh, podcaster for Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire.
I have often bragged that I’m immune to poison ivy after getting a really bad case of it years back. Two days ago I walked fearlessly through a patch of it because I’m immune. It turns out I’m not immune.

Wake me up when any Republican, anywhere, has the guts to propose significant restrictions on voting rights so that our country is no longer held hostage by non-contributing ignoramuses who shouldn’t have a say in anything

No, not really. If you don’t have your own source of income then you aren’t paying any taxes. The person supporting you is paying taxes. My daughter bought a toy the other day but she didn’t pay the sales tax. I did. It was my money. Do you understand the distinction here? https://t.co/ZCK8iAX5Nm
