Your vote weighting is a recipe for revolution.That system would not work and, ironically, is somewhat akin to how the Constitution was first written.... but then they realized the potential for revolution from those that did not have suffrage and started writing a few amendments to fix that.The reason it is problematic is that voting gives a person a voice in how they can protect their families.By giving someone 5 votes to the unskilled worker's 1 vote, you are telling the unskilled worker that the family of the guy who gets 5 votes is more important than the unsikilled worker's family.The unskilled worker doesn't like it... and there are a lot more unskilled workers than guys with 5 votes... so they're going to do something about it (*) unless that system changes and fixes that inequality.(*) Like kill the guys with 5 votes or kill and/or those who established this system that makes them be the shit class in that society.And you know who has value? The fry cook at McDonald's who can piss on them or sneeze COVID-19 on them.Young lady:Don't EVER tell people that they don't have value because, very quickly, they will show you that 1) they do and 2) your value is overrated. They know instinctively something that you have forgotten. If it bleeds, it can be slaughtered and rich "valued" people bleed just as well and are no more tasty to the worms and maggots eating the corpse after death as that of people with no value.Learn this valuable lesson now or you will be learning many more lessons the hard way in The School of Hard Knocks.
@abc3643 "Young Lady"? Listen old man, the unskilled worker is an unskilled worker for a reason. They have not applied themselves. We have all the privileges here in America, and people still believe they are victims. People think that it's just cheap labor going over seas. It's not. A lot of Engineering jobs are going overseas because Indian people can do the job better, and they don't complain. Old man, a revolution would never happen because people who lead revolutions tend to be small business owners who get 5 votes. And the person at McDonald's who pisses or sneezes in your food is exactly why they should not get valued the same. The person has no values. Also, how the eff do they know who they are serving? Furthermore, they jeopardized their own salary because that is a reasonable offense to sue, and believe me I would!Furthermore, CoVid-19 is a effing joke! People just don't know how to be healthy. If you are healthy, it will not kill you. it's your fault if you decide to be unhealthy. Grow up, old man!
@abc3643 And by the way, don't ever fucking talk to me about hard knocks. I can run circles around your miserable old life with what I have done in mine! You are part of the problem. Cry baby Baby Boomer who never added anything to society!
@CalmYourTitsYour system would be very difficult to maintain. It is discriminatory which flies in the face of the Constitution. Just reading your comment alone I was able to form a decision that the system you proposed would not last long. Yes, I did read the replies but I didn't allow them to influence me in reaching my decision.
@joeblow123 Firstly, this is a "for instance" like I said. And I think it would work great. Also, I do not think we are all equal. People decide where they what to be in life. If you are a leech in life, you deserve only one vote.
I see that you are going to have some problems in life.Good luck with that. (And I genuinely mean that.)
@abc3643 LOL! Says the person who has nothing in their life.

@Ms_VanderquackWhat does "vote properly" mean?
@joeblow123 to vote based on an understanding of the topics/candidates at hand and how they will impact the nation and generations to come rather than to blindly follow one extreme or the other.
@Ms_VanderquackThanks for clarifying. When I asked other people what they meant by "voting properly" they would reply with blindly agreeing with them.
@joeblow123 And that's the core of the problem right there.
@Ms_VanderquackAgreed. That is why I ask for clarification.
25 should be fine. Minimum 25.
@lonelyfortune I think military people should be exempt since they're laying their life on the line. They're also not pampered weaklings like a lot of college students are.
@NathanDavisSo you're saying the oldest someone can be and still vote is 19.
@MysteriousDarkness If we only allow people between the age of 18 and 19 vote, and elect our leaders, then maybe and just maybe... society in general will put a lot more effort on raising children, don't you think?
For example people at 80 cannot vote
no thats pretty dumb, i think if you are a citizen of the country, you should always be able to vote once you hit 18
not only that, those people have been living all their lives in the country they should at least have the rights to vote
Except that from here on in, elections will all be controlled and manipulated by the far Left.Or, if you want to use the term "Communists", that would be more accurate
