Bryan Fischer: only landowners should have the right to vote

In case anyone had doubts, based on Bryan Fischer's call to end welfare and eliminate minimum wage laws, about whether or not his agenda is to, under the guise of helping the poor (and being Christian), extend America's already great income inequality and usher in a permanent plutocracy, consider those doubts to be removed from this point onward.

On his radio show yesterday, Fischer once again called for the end of food stamps and minimum wage, as well as for the end of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, all the while claiming his intent was to help the poor.

Fischer couldn't help himself, however, and proceeded down the logical path towards the ultimate goal of extending income inequality: Complete serfdom and plutocracy.

That's right ladies and gentlemen. Fischer called for voting rights to be exclusive to landowners.

"You know, back in the day, in the colonial period," said Fischer, "you have to be a landowner, a property owner to be eligible to vote and I don't think that's a bad idea. And the 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.

"People 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."

What Fischer is clearly hoping all of you will ignore is that, by tying voting rights to property ownership, the current landowners will be given an invested interest in preventing non-owners from ever acquiring land. In this way, tying voting rights to property ownership would not only reduce half the population to second-class citizens, it would make their status as such irreversible.

Fischer won't point this out, of course, because it isn't just an unfortunate side effect. It is the intended result.
