The government would have a surplus -- roads, dams, hospitals and schools would not be in disrepair or overcrowded because the government would have plenty of money for all these things as they once did and would not be looking for ways to cut social security or other social programs.
You and I, however, CANNOT compete with the money corporations spend to buy off congress, (i.e. our politicians) and voting only replaces one corrupt party with the other corrupt party.
This very problem was foreseen by our founding fathers and our very Constitution with its Bill of Rights gives us the legal right to remove our government by force.
When the government/politicians fail to protect the citizens from gangs, child molesters and corporate greed, there is a simple strategy/formula for doing this:
- Shut the government down through protests, rallies and general strikes.
- Force every member of Congress and the White House to resign.
- Hold new elections without corporate financing.
- Abolish laws that created this inequality.
You and I can double our wages, pay half what we currently pay in taxes and balance the federal and state budgets by eliminating the corrupt system we now live in. Revolution restores justice and liberty while voting has only served to ensure the continuation of one corrupt party or the other.
