oh I think everybody here will not like my ideas.
eliminate most restrictions to voting
have partial votes for any class of people whose votes you think might be questionable:
this means giving kids and criminals and provable residents a partial vote
even if you decide to make it “not count”￼ and treat it like a survey for them, it’s crucially important that everybody’s whose feet touch a soil and are involved in the day-to-day lives have a possibility of some sort of representation or voice however minor
there is no corner of society that shouldn’t be heard in some fashion
homeless should’ve been my first mention: intentionally excluded from so many aspects of society in the USA
I have many other ideas but￼ this is one I always believed in.
The reason is that your experience of being a part of government in some capacity reduces the feeling of being divorced from government
does that mean kindergartners should vote? Yes and it should count in some way.
it doesn’t matter if the camera heads that defeat the skibidi toilet gets a majority write in vote from ages 5 to 14.
think of what insight that is for politicians that do win?
information gathering information
I would start at five because that’s when we send children out to be semi independently operating beings at some level with pseudoparents near.
in the USA you are a criminally culpable for some crimes at five years old: yet you can’t have a say in some fashion
Old people and people on death row￼, people with low IQs, people easily manipulated by charming smiles. silly jokes￼￼￼. clever wordplay and sarcasm. people working here temporarily – you are participating if you work here – get counted even if partial or survey
can you see how identification now becomes not exclusion but inclusion for voting?
and don’t mix it up and use it as an excuse to deport people or whatever: treat it like a sacred right￼, a right that extends to existence and provable participation in society
