Christopher Monckton proposes banning all federal aid recipients from voting

In a January 28th, 2014 column for WorldNetDaily, Christopher Monckton, the same man who wants to "fill the jails" with birther nonbelievers, proposed that Democracy could be saved by preventing all recipients of any form of government aid from voting.

Naturally, what quickly becomes apparent in Monckton's column is that the "death of democracy" is being caused by democracy itself.

Specifically, Monckton objects to people having the right to vote for Democrats.

"Nearly everyone who is unemployed votes 'Democrat'" he writes. "Nearly every immigrant, at least in the first generation, votes 'Democrat.' Nearly every non-white American votes 'Democrat.' The GOP know that so intellectually and financially bankrupt an administration should never have been re-elected – indeed, given the scale of electoral fraud practiced by the 'Democrats,' he may not actually have been re-elected (always supposing that he had the constitutional right to hold the office of president in the first place).

"Houston, we have a problem. America as we knew her and admired her is going down, sinking financially and politically under the tide of takers. For takers are also voters, and that is the problem. The taxpayees can vote themselves more and more and more of the taxpayers’ money.

"Yet so little attention has been given to the death of democracy via the growing cost and reach of federal welfare programs that the word 'taxpayees' has not existed until this moment. Google it and the search engine will assume you have made a spelling mistake. It will give you thousands of references to 'taxpayers.'"

Monckton's solution, of course, is not to modernize the Republican party to appeal to the majority. Instead, he recommends depriving voting rights to anyone receiving any form of government aid; "everything from food stamps to Medicaid and Medicare."

"Very important: If you are claiming any handout, you are not entitled to vote," he writes. "Taxpayers will have the right to vote, but taxpayees will not. That way, no one can vote himself a handout."

Just in case the fact that Monckton hates democracy and wants to replace it with a plutocracy was not obvious enough already.

So great is Monckton's hatred for democracy, in fact, that it obviously blinded him to the fact that depriving voting rights to all recipients of any form of government aid would completely obliterate the G.O.P.'s reliably solid base of elderly retirees.
