Any evidence proffered shall also have been planted to frame Her Majesty. Let's be perfectly clear and stipulate that Her Majesty is as close as we get these days to the Virgin Mary, and dispense with all this pesky inquiry, shall we? I mean, everyone else has been 'doing it', right?

Wealth "is mostly equal to" power. Information is also power. Charisma is power. But information and charisma do not necessarily equal wealth. So quit oversimplifying, please.
Let me edit you for effect:

wealth = power. . .you can impose term limits with your vote

Now, even if we assume plural "your" do you see that the power of the vote in the hands of the lumpenproletariat is in tension with your initial assertion that wealth is power? I'm kinda taking you at face value here, but it sure looks as though "your" left hand is talking out of both ends of your crack while "your" right hand is doing the itching.

Exploring the Bible and deriving your own individual truth is a defining characteristic of Protestantism.

One the one hand, I don't really consider myself Protestant per se. On the other hand, the Roman Catholic church, it must be said, has an outstanding crap filter in place. Furthermore, it doesn't take much historical analysis to show that, absent said crap filter, "christianity" recycled a whole bunch of heresy when it crossed the Atlantic to North America.
All I can say is come on down to my church and offer feedback on how much "individual truth" has been generated. All non-zero values are wrong.

Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
