Actually, I was setting-up an argument that the votes of people who pay taxes should count more than the votes of people who don't pay taxes or receive certain government benefits. Many people are aghast at the notion that some peoples' votes should count more than others, however they would have no problem with a similar arrangement in their personal lives.
Sure this sounds good in first order effects, but wait a couple generations and what happens?
You end up with real class stratification where the "upper" class who pay taxes and control the electoral system tweaks government so that they and their progeny can stay in the "upper" class.
After a few more generations, you begin to be able to tell if somebody's in the "upper" class by their last name.
And then you have India's caste system or civil war.
United States used to have a related system where only white male property owners got to vote. If it were so great why didn't we stick with it?
FYI Andrew Jackson helped remove the property requirement. Rhode Island required a rebellion.
