If people vote based on personality vs being qualified to do the job, are those people really qualified to vote? These type of people should not step into a voting booth. Just sayin.

I completely agree. I could care less about personality with politicians. It ain't like I'm ever gonna be stuck in an elevator with them. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't care to be around Trump more than a few minutes, but I'd vote for him again in a heartbeat. Voting based on personality doesn't make any sense

Only land owners over the age of 21 should be allowed to vote. Our founders wrote the voting law that way for very good reasons.

No taxation without representation-landowners can shoulder the extra tax burden.

Didn't we fight a war partly over being taxed without representation?

If we went to such a system, would you then agree to not tax the non voters at all? As in no sales tax, no income tax, no pitman-robertson tax, no gas tax, no gift tax, no capitol gains tax, etc etc etc....would you agree that if you're not allowed to vote, you don't have to pay any taxes of any sort? (Keep in mind there are plenty of rich people living in apartments who own no land, and plenty of poor people who do own land)

Would you also agree that the age of majority, to join the military,sign contracts, buy a gun, etc etc should be 21?

I think in an ideal republic, the peoples representatives would be elected by mature adult voters that are makeing positive contribution to the good of the country. There has always been a problem defining a line or an age limit for both.

Unfortunately and to the detriment of America that's not how our system works. Anybody no matter how much they hate America "For Which It Stands" can vote to undermine our republic in any manner or fashion they chose. it's our strength and our weakness as a nation. We actually give them enough rope to hang themselves and us in this process.

It worked for a couple hundred years because the majority of people understood and appreciated what is was that made this country great. Apparently it was our education system that failed us.

I've always thought that voters should have a MANDANTORY 3 year military service, or 6 year full time public service duty to EARN the right and PRIVALAGE of voting, and to run for public office.

Not so much to vote as to EARN full citizenship, so as to understand just what our freedoms mean, and their value. Why do the politicians and the media get so thrilled when only 25% of the population can get off their back pockets to go to the polls? That means 75% can't be bothered! Very sad.

Not sure if I want anyone in my family to be forced to serve and put their life on the line for these self serving crooked politicians.

This country could use a draft. Seems like our values changed about the time the draft ended.
