  • Re: on voting

    [quote user="Byzantine"]Nor is immigration, since welfare requires an ever larger tax base.[/quote] "Welfare State" also requires a large base of people advocating it, demanding it, defending it. Given what kind of immigration one gets, the required power base for doing so can grow...
