A good idea, but shouldn't the first step for our new country be that you have to be a CITIZEN in order to vote?
You're absolutely right. I'm taking too much for granted. In the early days of this country, you had to be a land owner in order to vote. This country's founders did their homework in studying history. They knew that past democracies worked great until a critical number of the citizens realized that they could vote themselves funds from public pools of monies (taxes collected from the "wealthy"). It was thought that the land owners would not be foolish enough to vote for taxes that were so high that they would put themselves out of business.
I was trying to come up with a way to put all the voters in a similar position as that of early landowners assuming citizenship as a requirement for ANY participation in the governing process.
