PJ O’Rourke: This is not an election on November 2. This is a restraining order.


Far to many people vote. We need to cut the tax eaters out of the voting rolls. That would solve the problem of feral Donks.

My scheme is that everyone would receive electronically W-2 or 1099 forms listing all their compensations and whether they came from a gov't treasury, copy to the government. All statements would indicate what percent of the money listed came from the public treasury. If in any 12 months in a 18 month period the majority of a person's income came from either the federal or state/local level government then they would be ineligible to vote at that level. The only exception would be enlisted military. Purely oversight bodies with no budgetary authority, school boards etc., would be exempt and could allow all legal residents to vote. That way if you work for the Fed, or a contractor that is paid by the Fed, then you can't vote for Congress. If you work for the State or Municipality, such as a School Teacher, then you don't get to vote for the State Legislature, Governor, Mayor or Judges. Remember the President is elected by the Electoral College and the Presidential vote is legally just an advisory opinion poll, so I would let every citizen vote for the POTUS, barring felons.
