Educated citizens & democracy

Yes, we need educated citizens to vote.

Examples abound. Asia alone: Most democratic countries are corrupt including Philippines (past, present and most likely future). The countries that are not corrupt comparatively are Japan and S. Korea and they all have educated citizens.

The US is in its own category. It is corrupt under the cover. The voters are for themselves. When we have more free loaders (over 40% not paying Federal income tax), they are the majority of the voters.

I call it representation without taxation and it is worse than than taxation without representation. I propose counting them as half a vote and requiring them to show their tax returns in the ballot booth.
