Do you claim to have the right to take $2,800 a month from my family and spend it as you please? Would you do so yourself? If so, you’re a thief. If not, you’re a hypocrite. Because, when you vote, you purport to grant this power you do not have to others. When you vote, you are a thief by proxy.

By what right do you do this? Can you even articulate your reasoning for this action that is so antithetical to freedom? I dare you to try. You might surprise yourself with the answer.

It defies reason and incriminates the voter in all manner of transgressions — not unlike holding down a victim while your neighbor has his way with her.
