    Is it a good thing that in a Democracy everyone gets to vote? Should it be restricted to people...

    who can prove they know what they're doing or to people who've contributed enough to the country?

    Who decides?  who determines whether a person has contributed enough or for that matter possess the intelligence to vote. That becomes a problem if you claim to have a democratic process. Citizenship is the litmus test along with registering to vote.  Anything beyond that becomes discriminatory in nature and undermines democracy on the whole. WB

    Mr. Wayne is totally right. How does one prove that they know what they are doing and who judges that ... it`s in the eye of the beholder.
