I think it would more future oriented.
In my country the over 50 crowd is by far the biggest demographic so every year raise college and pensions. To please that crowd. But the pensions are already not bad. And I think the same happens in a lot of countries, they take away a lot of opportunity from the young to give the old a little more comfortable life and get votes
Which is great if there's enough money to go around, but there's not. And I don't think education and youth unemployment are the right areas to save money.
Maybe old people have more experience but I used to volunteer in a nursery home (yes they can still vote) and old people are also fucking selfish.
I do think 50 is too low tho. Maybe 60. Between 18 and 60 that would give 42 years to vote, after which I think it's time to pass on the torch

We might improve actually because right now, we have so many people who are stuck in their old ways and are not willing to change. I wish their would be a movement to abolish the 2 party system. Our founding fathers warned us about this system and told us it would be our downfall and we still didn't listen.1
