Tea Party Fascists: Only Property Owners Should Be Allowed To Vote

• RawStory.com
 
"If you're not a property owner, you know, I'm sorry but property owners have a little bit more of a vested interest in the community than non-property owners." Approximately 33% of Americans are renters, according to the National Multi-Housing Council. During the same radio program, Phillips discussed with David DeGerolamo, the founder of tea party group North Carolina Freedom, the repeal of various constitutional amendments. "Of course, when people talk, three Amendments that really are the only ones that seriously get talked about getting repealed: the 16th Amendment, for the income tax, and we can only hope that happens; the 17th Amendment for having the appointment of Senators got back to state legislatures; and the 26th Amendment, I believe it is," Phillips said. "Do you know which one that is, David?" "No, but I know which one I want repealed," responded DeGerolamo. "I want the 14th Amendment repealed." The first clause of the 14th Amendment grants birthright citizenship to anyone born in the US, regardless of whether their parents are citizens. The second and third clause prohibits the government from depriving persons of life, liberty, or property without due process and requires the government to provide equal protection under the law, respectively.

Vote shmote.

Land owners elect. Voters play a game that doesn't count for anything.

When the 17th Amendment came on board, it made electing useless. There isn't anybody operating in the original jurisdiction U.S., or any of the original jurisdiction States anymore. Alaska and Hawaii were never original jurisdiction states because they were never put in place by the original jurisdiction U.S.A..

Be glad you can vote at all. It might even work a little. Your other choice is to re-set the original jurisdiction U.S.A., and then you can elect by property ownership as originally intended.

Team Law at www.teamlaw.net says it way better than I ever could.

billy loyd, we might just have a deal there. So you suggest that only voters have to pay taxes? We're a big step closer to the voluntary society we desire. You can pretend to have your elections and we'll pretend to obey your leaders. You can pretend to be enfranchised and we can pretend to be impressed. You can submit to involuntary servitude and we can pretend to right along with you.

Yeah, I'm not coming up with too many downsides. But if you really want to add some flair, pay them in pretend money. For all the benefits and protection government pretends to give you.

It might not hold together logically but syntactically it's bulletproof.

Maybe not owning land but how about being a tax payer before your able to cast a vote?  Only those who actually pay taxes on thier income/ property have a vested interest that tax monies are used to promote the general welfare and not make life easy for those who would live off the efforts of others.

uhhhhhhhh.... back then a person could actually “own” property (unless you were black)

 

Today, you can't technically "own" property unless you have an Alodial Title. If those uppity slaves looked at their deeds they would realize they are just tenants as well.

 

People that have mortgages are nothing more than glorified renters. If you have to pay property tax on something then you don’t truly own it. To test this theory, try not paying the rent tax on it and see if they don’t confiscate it.

 

In as much, how can you claim you “own” a piece of property when you’re in debt to a bank? They bank “owns” it until you pay them off.

 

Blacks law book says in order to “own” something you have to have “complete dominion” over it. I don’t think people have complete dominion over their property.

 

Also, it was quite convenient for the founders to claim you had to own property to vote since they happen to all owned property and the peasants didn’t.

 

It was a great line though……how did it go??? “All men are created equal if you own property” :)

Approximately 33% of Americans are renters. Don't renters pay property taxes via their paid rent? Non-property owners, renters also pay to play.

 I don't think that's fascist at all.

In fact, at the founding of the nation, the founding fathers were clear on the matter that only property owners should vote.

It's the epitome of a libertarian private property system.
