How to Vote - or not

Democracy? I doubt it.
The old feeder, never a fan of universal suffrage, just couldn't let tomorrow's election day pass without telling anyone who will listen how they should vote. Or at least whether or not to vote. So, without further ado, don't vote tomorrow:
  • If you don't know who the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President of the Senate are today;
  • If you can't find Iraq, Iran, Venezuela and North Korea on an unmarked globe;
  • If you are a net tax consumer and wish to vote yourself a bigger share of your neighbor's money;
  • If you aren't a US citizen in good standing;
  • If you can't explain the difference between Marxism and Capitalism;
  • If you aren't 21 years of age.
As I said, I'm no fan of Democracy or any other 'ocracy'. But if you want to play at voting for your oppressors, I suggest a more exclusive form of Timocracy than that currently in fashion. Otherwise our laws will be nothing but rules by fools and our Republic will be finished.
