Hans-Hermann Hoppe Quote

“If the right to vote were expanded to seven year olds ... its policies would most definitely reflect the ‘legitimate concerns’ of children to have ‘adequate’ and ‘equal’ access to ‘free’ french fries, lemonade and videos.”

~ Hans-Hermann Hoppe

After the last presidential election,perhaps 7 year olds voted.

(-; jim, I think your observation defamed 7 yr. olds, they're not that stupid - it takes much more theocratic seminary (government schools) to dummy down an electorate sufficiently to vote as they did in the last several elections ;-) As to the quote, a very accurate assessment. Socialism's investment into theocratic slaves has paid off - the patrons have wholeheartedly embraced the free lunch and are now drinking the cool-aid.

For those that did not understand the "cool-aid" credit, it was a reference to the Jim Jones / Guyana experience.

Same for the right for illegal immigrants to vote... What Americans seem to have forgotten is that not everything is up for vote, and those that we elect do not have the right to take from one to give to the other any more than the voters do. Elections have turned into voting in the Chief Thief in hopes that the voter will get a share of the spoils.
