CMV: If you don't currently make more than $120k/yr (math as to why inside thread) you shouldn't be allowed to vote because from a tax perspective you're a net drain as an American citizen.

very concept of democracy

Why are you clinging on to democracy? It's like clinging on to the Constitution. Zoom out of your bedroom and look at the country. On a scale from 1 to 10, how close to perfect is it? With all of the racist cops and lack of opportunity or whatever it is people get upset about these days. It's probably a 6 out of 10 at best. Why are you still thinking democracy is the answer when we have climate issues, inequality issues? It's fine if you think my silly tax calculation for "fairness" is wrong... but... democracy? It's not working bro lol You can't give people who know nothing about anything the right to vote on direction for big complicated economic systems.
