* a lazy dole-bludger who doesn't work
* a single mommy who doesn't work
* the generally poor who live hand-to-mouth
* a ditch digger
* a schoolteacher
* a lawyer
* and a doctor
All have exactly the same say as each other in the way that this country works.
Unfortunately there are a fuckload more dole bludgers, single mommies, and general poor types than there are doctors. You can bet for shit-sure that they will be voting to give themselves more money.
Which is why half my income goes in taxes.
