I don't want a pure democracy

Mob rule doesn't work, regardless of what scheme is used to count votes.

I'd rather see a restriction on the right to vote. We would probably all be better off if we prevented government employees and those receiving direct government assistance from voting, and limited the right to vote of the remaining population to those who pay taxes.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
