Can this poll be accurate?
Media reports tell us a poll shows 78 percent
of New Yorkers favor taxing the rich more as
opposed an obesity tax on non diet soft drinks?
If this poll result is accurate; it is exhibit A
why the Founding Fathers adopted a Republican
form of government rather than a pure Democracy.
They feared that the masses could not, or would
not, exercise sound judgment.
Tax the rich more and they leave the state.
Then, who is left to tax? To be the economic engine
of the state? The growing welfare constituency?
This poll result, if true, is further argument against
abolishing the electoral college.
A uninformed, irrational popular vote is a danger
to the survival of America.
