Send the unwashed back to plantation

October 22, 2013

Well, there you have it. No more pretending and no more hiding in the shadows.

Plutocracy, just in time for similarly inclined similarly entitled individuals (mostly white males) to retake their rightful heritage. Send the unwashed back to the plantation, but please count them on the census so that we continue to get more representation than represented voters.

I do not know Mr. Carreau but I find his ideas of democracy ignore almost 250 years of evolution and his ideas terrify me. For all those who don't think their vote matters, watch out for those who would take it away. It matters to them.
