Two quotes from two of the Founders:
What does this have to do with anything?
It seems the Republican Party's efforts to get less and less of us voting in elections fits in with what the Founding Fathers had in mind.
It's wrong--deeply--but with this little bit of information alone, you get a strong sense of their intentions. Of course, far fewer of us had as much education then as we do now, too, so that's in our favor.
The fact is, where we are right now is that we have to get the big, ugly, corrupting influence of "campaign contributions" out of our election system and so, our government. As it stands, our legislators are bought by the corporations and wealthy, along with their legislation and so, our laws and finally, our government.
