I was just wondering what percentage of the voting public is either hopelessly a) stupid or b) self-centered. I’d like to see someone propose a referendum requiring the government to pay everyone over the age of 18 one million dollars on January 1 every year. What percentage of people would vote for that? I’m guessing at least 25 percent, although you might see higher turnout than normal as you have to imagine that the complete morons would turn out in force for that one.
“Hey, man, check it out! A million dollars?”
– hits bong – “Dude, we so gotta vote!”
