Do lower income people give up power by not paying income tax?

Who cares if they got no skin in the game?

Update:

is kept by making sure their taxes dont get started.---?

Update 2:

so power is ensured by personal mediocrity

Update 3:

@lost-bachmann is a lawyer

Update 4:

In 1988, Bachmann received an LL.M. degree in tax law from the William & Mary School of Law.[2][16] From 1988 to 1993, she was an attorney working for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).[17] She left her position with the IRS to become a full-time mother[18] when her fourth child was born.[19]

Update 5:

@lost-it could be a trick=like the military and the draft you see....if you dont pay taxes you are disinfranchized-aka who cares...limp

Update 6:

and thus the poor if poor and poor should pay a flat tax

then they have a better position-those that pay have position

    Wards of the state.

    In my opinion, if you're existence depends on Government handouts, you've lost your liberty as well as your dignity and self respect.

    But to answer your question, they actually have more power than you think.

    50% of the country pay zero income tax, yet they can still vote for more benefits.

    A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

    Yes, that's why all of Bush's idiotic taxes should be allowed to expire, then everybody would pay at least some reasonable taxes.

    No, just the opposite.

    They get representation WITHOUT taxation.
