    So, how much do you have to give in $$$ to have a say?

    Everyone gets a say, maybe we should stop producing so many stupid people.

    Hmm, ya' know, ...I think a bigger question might be "Should smart people be allowed to have a say?"

    I mean, there's, like, what ...three smart people in the world, and all the rest are stupid people. So should those few smart people be permitted to tell all the stupid people what to do and when to do it?

    There is no such thing as a stupid person, just a culturally deprived person.

    What about those people who absorb a culture of stupidity?

    How do you define intelligence? What about personality traits? Would you support the mass sterilization of people that don't have the genes you value? What about creating a separate country for the "genetic undesirables" where they would be free to live as they please ("self-destruct" all on their own)?

    Do you believe the current ruling elites would agree with your plan? Do you think the current elites have an interest in keeping "genetic undesirables" around because they need their votes and support to stay in power?

    As much as you're foolish enough to give. They always have their hands out or in your pockets.
