$$ A little civics help please $$
I don't seem to be getting any looks at the other place, so help me out if you could.
Help me with a little civics please. You may have many forms of democracy, but in this country I'd assume that there are protections of property and capital. As an example if 20% for land owners own 80% of the property what fundamental prevents those smaller property owners from passing a petition with their 80% larger number to make the large property owner pay 80% of the cost for an improvement without his permission.
I've been under the illusion that a petition like that would require the owners of 51% of the property to ask for an assessment by acreage, but I'm wrong. There is no statute requiring it. This is socialism just like a mob storming the castle and declaring â€śThe Democratic Peoples Community of Timbuktuâ€ť and will never be allowed by the county â€“ I hope. At the grass roots level I've experienced a very rapid â€śbetter deal for me â€“ that's fair, because this guy may someday sell all that land and make some moneyâ€ť attitude. Scares me, because that thinking is rooted in socialism.
What prevents 2 guys with $5 each from from saying to a guy with twenty bucks â€śyou've gotta pay 4 fifths the price of lunchâ€ť when we're all eating the same thing?
