|Redistributing the Wealth|
This is the major flaw in American democracy: when the lazy and unproductive are able to vote themselves a share of your bank account, they will certainly do so. They will also continue to support the fences that distribute the stolen booty and keep the theft legal and active.

Opposes Redistributing Wealth
There is a solution, however. People who do not make enough money to support themselves should be disenfranchised, that is, denied the right to vote. Then they couldn't vote for the crooks who do their stealing for them. I would further add the proviso that anyone who pays no income taxes should also be disenfranchised. The idea is to take away the opportunity for theft and the motivation for voting for collectivists and wasteful spenders. Any spending and tax increases should be felt by everyone who votes. Then people would truly be spending their own money instead of spending that of someone else.
In the beginning of this nation, only property owners were allowed to vote (or so I'm told). We need to return to such a system. No one should be allowed to use democracy as a tool to mug his neighbors.
