Truthfully speaking, a highly respected politician (during the heated arguments between North and South) had suggested something I can agree with. There should be 5 qualifications to be a voter-qualified to vote:
1. No declarations of Bankruptcy. This is unfortunate, but it means one has passed his burdens on to society.
2. Cannot be supported by taxpayers. Unemployment, welfare, etc, etc. You must be willing and capable of supporting yourself to vote.
3. Must be a taxpayer of some sort of property. To pay them only from a paycheck doesn't deem any kind of exceptional responsibility and great concern of what taxes we are paying and how they are being spent.
4. Must possess some type of education. A voter should be capable of thinking on their own, being able to read.
5. Can't remember the 5th one.
ah I see why you love King George so much..those are the style of a monarchial system. There is a flaw to number 2,3 and 4. In 2, there are people on SS(retirement), SSDI, and SSI, are they eligilbe voters? Certainly nobody's faults for growing old or becoming/is disabled... If so, I'll challenge you on the Disabilities Act that grant them to vote as well as the elderly.
3. Some people are renters....what about them? Some of them can't afford property because real estate are in the "goldmining" business. Besides, there are young/disabled people who are still home. I knew a gal who is very intelligent but she has trouble remembering things short term, some form of rare brain diease...so she lives at home.
4. First you tell us its okay for kids to dropout of High school now you want them to be educated...make up your mind. Thankfully, I am a college graduate with TWO degrees.....not clown school....a real college. Secondly, there are people with dylexic, they can't vote either?
I don't agree with those so-called politicians...I wouldn't vote for them if they were the last person on earth... Sounds like bunch of Jeb Bushs' and John Ashcrofts'.
I suspect that if those criteria had to be met, I can think of one particular party that would simply dissolve.
