Everyone voting is the problem here. Most people aer too stupid to vote. Sorry but its true. The framers had it right limiting it to landowners. Modern times would need that expanded a little but if you have no dog in the fight you have no say.
I disagree with just about everything written here. If look at a country like Australia where they have requisite voting, they have a much more informed electorate than we do in America. A huge part of the difference is that there is generall more than two viable choices and it largely comes down to real issues and isnt subjected to media outlets basically working as campaign proxies. Thier elections arent reduced to 30second soundbytes and fueled by billions of dollars.
