Wayne Allyn Root expressed a notable viewpoint on the subject of who is allowed to vote in this country yesterday on the Virginia radio program of Rob Schilling. Root recognized the problem that those who are financial burdens on society, who are being supported by the liberal social systems, have a conflict of interest in their vote. It is due to the fact that they effectively have their hands in the pockets of the American worker and are voting for more of other people’s wealth to be taken and redistributed to them. Root sees a restriction on their voting rights as an appropriate and necessary response.
Root, who has a new book, titled “Angry White Male,” acknowledges that it’s hard to undo all of the damage that the left has inflicted on America because we are such an evenly divided nation.
He says, “You know that’s why we’re an angry white male, we’re evenly divided, right? We’re evenly divided between the makers and the takers. And so the middle class is basically paying, paying, paying, paying and the poor get everything free. And it’s a disaster. I just saw a map on the Internet, some scientist, some social scientist did a map of America in the 2012 election and they showed the electoral votes that really happened between Obama and Mitt Romney. I think Romney lost like 303 to 202 or something like that, it’s about a hundred votes.”
He continues, “And they took the same map, if you only allowed taxpayers to vote – a Republican sweep of like 47 out of 50 states. So if the people that paid the tax were the only ones allowed to vote we’d have landslide victories. But you’re allowing people to vote, this explains everything. People that have conflict of interest shouldn’t be allowed to vote.”
Root explains, “If you collect welfare you have no right to vote. The day you get off welfare you get your voting rights back. The reality is, why are you allowed to have this conflict of interest that you vote for the politician that wants to keep your welfare checks coming? And you food stamps and your Aid for Dependent Children and your free health care and your Medicaid and your Medicare and your Social Security and everything else? And by the way Social Security shouldn’t count because it’s not really an entitlement because you paid in to get the money out.”
“But in general,” says Root, “Most of the things I just rattled off should preclude you from voting. Social Security should not, Medicare should not because you paid into the system. But all the other stuff, all the other goodies, free Obama phones or free contraception. You know what, you can get ’em, but you shouldn’t be allowed to vote. It’s a conflict of interest. Take that away, we win every single election in this country.
