No vote for you! Heil the Republic of Boortz.

Dave Neiwert has written a post further commenting on Neal "democracy is a hideous form of government" Boortz. And on a related note, he also has just posted his review of Jonah Goldberg's revisionist book Liberal Fascism.

While we're at it, here's an older article from Boortz in which he again urges taking the vote from people who don't vote his way.

I am now and have been for years a firm advocate of developing a system to limit the people who can vote in this country. We need to find a way to restrict the number of people who can vote. If we don't weed out the chaff soon it may well be too late.

Don't give me that democracy nonsense.
Just to be clear: the "chaff" is comprised of poor people, women, and minorities mostly. Although to be fair, given that in 2004 Boortz said that he was having a hard time deciding if al Qaeda or John Kerry voters were more dangerous, one suspects he'd be ok with just stripping the vote from anyone who doesn't vote for his candidate(s).

In addition, he argues for giving voters more purchasing power according to how much money they have. A brilliant idea if one is looking to recreate something similar to the pre-Civil War economy of the South.
