It’s election day. Celebrities and politicians alike implore you to go vote.
But should everybody vote? John Stossel explores a politically incorrect stance: maybe not everyone should vote.
The people who push hardest for everyone to vote are also trying to register welfare recipients and students at rock concerts.
Responsible workers and business owners, who pay taxes every year, already vote. Taxpayers don’t need a message to “rock the vote,” because we already know that if we don’t vote, the other people will all vote to take away more of our money, or vote to make us work harder to provide for our families.
“Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses.” – Juvenal, 100 AD
