I’ve mentioned this a few times and people scoffed but I’m absolutely convinced that the GOP will start drafting legislation that says the rich should get more votes than the poor or, the flip side, that poor people shouldn’t vote at all. Why?
Tom “Progressive Kristallnacht” Perkins expounded on his views once again last night, and was asked for positive solutions. He’s definitely thinking outside the box:
The Tom Perkins system is: You don’t get the vote if you don’t pay a dollar in taxes. But what I really think is it should be like a corporation. You pay a million dollars, you get a million votes. How’s that?
He tried to play it off like a joke but let’s be honest: this is how he and much of the 1% thinks. The system exists for their benefit and how DARE we commoners vote to improve our lives?! The sense of entitlement is astonishing. It’s not enough to control most of the money and most of the power, they need ALL of it. Because, you know, they’re better than you. But there I go again, waging class warfare against the poor, innocent billionaires….
