Not just land owners. Tax payers, man. People who foot the bill are the only ones that should have a say. but doesn't matter. Never gonna happen. Just an opinion. Freeloaders should not have a say in how tax payer money is spent. Their fucking numbers should not trump the hard work of the rest of us.

Well, on that we can agree. But then we have to rework who pays taxes and who doesn't. I mean, the whole tax code needs to be thrown out and replaced with a more efficient, more balanced model. I don't mind paying taxes, but I hate the shit my government wastes my money on. Why should i pay into a welfare program i can't draw from when i need it? Why should i pay for a never ending war that i want no part in? Its all good and well to say "vote for the candidates that share your values", but when none of them do, you lose no matter what.

This whole system is those at the top take, those at the bottom take, and those in the middle get fucked both ways and have to pay for it all.

the problem is that biggest companies like GE, Exxon, Apple pay little-to-no taxes in comparison to the poor. The poor get taxed more than the rich because the rich (and educated) have figured out how to game the system.
