I know, I know, “one man, one vote” but just pipe down and listen for a second, willya?
Thank you. Now, if a system were proposed by which “deserving” people got more than a single vote, what would be your suggestion for how to apportion those votes? For example, I might suggest to satisfy younger people arguing that they deserve a vote before the age of 18 “Okay, you get 1 vote when you turn 12, then at 18 you get to vote twice, and then when you turn 25, you get three votes like anyone else.” Or maybe a felon gets reduced to a single vote, and immigrants get a single vote for their first few years after getting citizenship, and gradually work their way up.
Or maybe you get extra votes if you’ve voted in the previous election. Or extra votes for serving in the military. Or for teaching in a public school for a certain number of years.
Personally, I think this would be really cool. That, or I need to get down to work and stop having these loopy ideas out in public.
