The solution for our time! Serfdom!
The Party of Unlimited Government can maintain a registry
where the left/progs can apply [and of course they'll be
accepted] to become 'serfs'. The registry collective will retain,
say, 3/5th of their number for voting and census purposes [I
a precedent in U.S. history somewhere] but the
serfs will have no further say in public affairs, nor enjoy any of
those rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights. Their fates and
personal decisions would be administered by an agency devoted
to their care built on the worst parts of the IRS, HUD and the
In casting the serfs' surrendered votes, the exact number
available will be determined by a random number algorithm of
how many couch potatoes would get off the couch to travel to a
polling place on a given first Tuesday after the first Monday in
November. Illegal aliens would automatically enjoy serfdom
status but without voting 'rights'.
What could possibly go wrong?
