“In a democracy, your vote counts; in feudalism, your count votes”

“In a democracy, it’s your vote that counts; in feudalism, it’s your count that votes” (or, “In a democracy, your vote counts; in feudalism, your count votes”) has been cited in print since at least 1990. The humorous play upon words has been printed on many Internet joke lists.
