Boing Boing points out a fairly interesting revelation today:
"the founders of the country originally put 'certain restrictions on who gets the right to vote. One of those was you had to be a property owner. And that makes a lot of sense, because if you're a property owner you actually have a vested stake in the community. If you're not a property owner, you know, I'm sorry but property owners have a little bit more of a vested interest in the community than non-property owners.'"
Thanks Melli for the tip.
