US Billionaire Calls for Elite Rule on Elections
Susanne Posel (OC) : Tom Perkins, billionaire venture capitalist, believes that the Elite should have more say in this country by having access to more voting rights than everyone else.
“The Tom Perkins system is: You don’t get the vote if you don’t pay a dollar in taxes. But what I really think is it should be like a corporation. You pay a million dollars, you get a million votes. How’s that?”
To save bad press, Perkins claimed that he had “intended to be outrageous” when he divulged his idea to the audience.
This wealthy man asserts that the 1% can purchase votes which is easier and cheaper than investing in propaganda schemes to convince the public to vote in favor of the Elite.
Perkins asserts that:
• Obama is an “amateur president” who is demonizing the 1%
• Teachers unions are destroying the US public school system
• US elections should adopt a corporate model with those paying $1 million in taxes having 1 million votes during elections
In a letter to the press, Perkins wrote: “I would call attention to the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its “one percent,” namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the ‘rich.’” Of course, Perkins offered an apology later for this comment.
According to Bryan Fischer, the US government should end socialized entitlement programs such as social security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, and the federal minimum wage. Fischer said:
“You know, back in the day, in the colonial period, you had to be a landowner, a property owner to be eligible to vote and I don’t think that’s a bad idea. And the reason is very simple: if somebody owns property in a community, they’re invested in the community. If they’re renters, they’re going to be up and gone; they could leave the next day … [P]eople that are not property owners – it’s like people that pay no taxes, they have no skin in the game. They don’t care about the same things that somebody does who is rooted in the community.”
