Let’s Equalize The Right To Vote

I got involved in a conversation on Facebook the other day that led to one hell of a light bulb over the head moment.

Let’s make elections fair… Let’s put a limit on the amount of money you can give to all candidates for office equal to the amount of income taxes you paid. Limit the amount you can give to the parties or political action committees at some (small) multiple of those same taxes. So basically, if you want to be generous to a political party… Fine, just be generous to your government responsibility.

Pay your way in America and have your say in how America runs.

What do you think? Un-american enough for you… Pay your taxes and be allowed to contribute. Paid free speech is a privilege, not a right of the very rich or the un”people” that are corporations.
