America would lose more money a year on this system and further drive down already struggling sectors such as social security and education by being forced to draw even more of their finds a way. As it stands now the concept is not constitutional, an altar to the first and twenty-fourth amendments would be required at least, and that would still not guarantee it to pass.
The voter turnout in American politics is dangerously low due to the fact that the citizens feel their vote is no longer a voice. In addition, the citizens of United States have realized the electoral college is overseeing the body of government in elections. The people also do not vote due to the fact their day is busy and in some fields, leaving early from work to vote isn't an option.

Every American takes advantage of these rights every day.
The high economic requirement to vote created by the signing of the Bayonet Constitution is one of the economic effects. Most Hawaiians couldn’t reach the requirement for money, leaving only the American and Europeans on Hawaii having the ability to vote. This correlates to the overthrow because it weakened the Native Hawaiians power on the government because they weren’t as wealthy as most foreigners on Hawaii. Another economic effect of the Bayonet Constitution was after King Kalakaua’s powers were taken from him, the only thing Kalakaua could do was to renew the Reciprocity Treaty with the United States. The renewal of the Reciprocity Treaty continued the duty-free importations of sugar.
