...why should there be representation without taxation?
In other words, those who vote should have a financial stake in the outcome. Voters should have to present some form of proof that they paid a non-sales tax that year.
Theoretically, it could equally disenfranchise the non-taxpaying wealthy as well as the "paid under the table" freeloader.
Just think about it. There is an argument to be made for keeping the franchise for those who have paid their dues.
Did I mention that I think an Alternative Minimum Tax should be levied on EVERYONE over the age of 21? NOBODY gets all their tax back in a refund. ALL should pay, at least something.
