    If we are not competent enough to run our own lives, how competent can we be in selecting someone who 'should'?

    The few are not always corrupt nor are they always competent. Anyone who is not competent to run their own lives shouldn't have a vote; that is, a welfare beggar should have no say in how responsible people spend the fruits of their labor.
