yes, only property owners should vote
no, let everyone vote
Fully financially independent emancipated minors should even have a full vote. Whereas adults whose primary needs are met 100% by government assistance programs should have zero vote.
Most people, even those on public assistance of various kinds, would still at least have partial votes, under my plan.

You know, I know some poor people that have MUCH more character, personality and morals and values than any wealthy person. I guess people like Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus etc. get a pass. What makes people think that because a person is having a hard time in life means they somehow deserve to lose any of their rights is beyond my understanding.
There is nothing wrong with using the services that WE provide to help the poor not starve. As a matter of fact, it would selfish not to if you have kids. Have your kids go hungry because of pride?
You know what makes this whole property thing even funnier: I would take all my acres, divide them up into tiny chunks, and sell that off as 'Voting Plots' - I could even erect a plaque. "This voting plot is in honor of ___" It would be like a cemetery for our rightfully granted rights.
It would become a tourist attraction.
. . . And I'd donate the money to charity and write it off on my taxes . . . and further a cause to overthrow such a ridiculous law.
