    I disagree. All adult citizens should be able to vote. I do agree that there should be age limits for elective office, but the Constitution provides for that.

    Of course, being on government assistance shouldn't remove your ability to vote. They have every much say in how the country should be run as the billionaire banker.

    Then again though, I think it's pretty trashy and wrong to vote yourself into having more free money or increasing taxes on others to pay for you. It's unfortunate, but oftentimes those votes set the tax rate for other groups in the population and it harms them in no way to support candidates that would hike up takes and government fees for others who are not on assistance.

    I didn't say that all adult citizens shouldn't be able to vote. What specifically are you disagreeing with? I also never said anything about age limits for elected office.

    Then why do you want to raise the voting age to 21 or 25?

    I'm pretty blown-away that the subject of specifying a non-voting class of Americans would even come up!
