Most 16 year old kids dont know much about or learn much about the presidental election to be able to vote. I feel the voting age 18 is a little risky itself and going lower is just unprofessional. Judges are comparing our country to diffrent countries like our rules and presidents are the same. My arguement is to keep the voting age at 18 years old.
Is this seen as wiping away human rights? The different point of views can make one’s view on the situation switch immediately. In this country there seems to be certain types of people controlling who gets to do what even though our Bill of Rights clearly states our certain rights. How does a full population of people that builds the United States to where it is standing now get their rights controlled by a system that barely knows the population itself? When this is what the world has come to, you must defend the ones you love and make sure none of their opportunities are taken away.
First of all, the checks and balances guards against tyranny because if we don't stay in check someone might gain too much power. This is very bad because then if they have all the power they want they can do pretty much whatever they want. Many people would end up not agreeing to the laws they make this would basically guarantee a tyranny. The next reason is because checks keep a strong government. An example is without keeping check then the government wouldn't be as strong because of having multiple people with power there would only be one.
The argument of those who believe this way has many components. First, the Electoral College is felt to be an outdated system which is no longer necessary for our elections (The Electoral College). Opponents of the College admit that yes, at one point in time, the Electoral College was a necessary component in electing the President of the Union. However, technology has made it so that the information necessary to make informed decisions about voting is available to the majority of voters (The Electoral College). Voters today are more informed than they were back when the constitution was written and, because of that, placing the final vote in the hands of electors rather than the people is unnecessary.
In document D it says “Those who obsess about voter turnout are perhaps the ones to whom we should pay the least attention. The less legitimate politician feel, the more they try to pass laws that build around their regimes a Potemkin facade* of citizen involvement.” This quote shows that compulsory voting is bad because they are saying don’t focus on people who always vote, focus on the people who don’t and make them vote. The document shows how governments can force their citizens to vote and that governments need to earn the support of their citizens, this document could be used to argue that requiring citizens of a democracy to vote is a violation of consent of the government is
Everyone has the right to vote, but many don’t take that opportunity. In the article “Should Voting Be Mandatory?” Eric Liu tells us that “mandatory voting would prompt more Americans to pay attention to the choices;” people usually never pay attention to their choices, and then complain about it later when everything has already happened. (Par 5). Mandatory voting means that every citizen of the age of 18 and above that has a right to vote must vote.
“If this system was so framed as to command that respect from the people, which every good free government will obtain, this provision was unnecessary” (Brutus 4). •People will not support laws that the magistrates carry out by themselves and shouldn’t be expected to, since it is a free government. •The right of election is given by the people, but the Congress has the power to change the time, regulations, and place of the elections. •If the federal government moves the elections to the capital, only the high-ranked people from the society would be able to attend and they would choose people from the same class.
Besides enforcing censorship through incineration, the government also enacted ways of preventing an ability to desire further knowledge. After all, a naïveté enough group of people don’t warrant much physical power when being used for their ignorance.
Although this is very unlike as mentioned, most people of America are too worried about self gain and self interest, and the facade of society places a biased view on anything linked to communism. Too many immediately reject any idea of communism. It can be seen that not significant work was done in the world in “Anthem” and that extreme forms of communism are likely to fail, but a less extreme form like socialism could possibly save the world from corruption, and could bring the world back together as
Majoritarian politics are not dominated by pulling and hauling among rival interest groups, but they appeal to large amount of voters and their representatives in hopes of finding a majority. The reason why interest groups are not important in majoritarian politics is that citizens rarely will have incentive to join an interest group if it doesn’t affect them. Also citizens will not have any motivation to join a interest group if the group benefits everyone whether they join or not, this is called the free-rider problem. People will not join an interest group if the their contribution to the group will barely impact the group and they can also gain benefits by not participating too. The free rider problem is that some individuals in some populations either take more resources and contributed less or when they get the fair share but they contribute less than others.
Since most people do not vote we are not truly a democracy. If more eligible voters were to vote, it would greatly change how our political system currently works. A broader spectrum of voters would shape policies and decisions differently. The additional voters would aid in more accurately deciding upon what the entirety of society wishes. To increase voter turnout, there would need to be more than incentive or change to voting practices.
They also believe that mandatory voting would make people choose random candidate in order to just do their duty and not get fines or other punishments, but that’s not true because people had already gone to choose so they will take their time because they are already there. They also argue that quality rather quantity is prefered to achieve successful election and strong government, however, having large numbers of people will show exactly the amount of support for that candidate and the one that they choose to run their country in the future and lead them to better country. Voting doesn’t need the political knowledge, and everyone can choose the right person without having any idea about politics. When government forces the people to vote that means it’s so important for the country, and they don’t just do it for no reason. Mandatory voting is a huge change maker, it affects the country in many ways; socially,politically and economically.
In many ways their rights are being disregarded and threatened by visions congress on certain things, this is not a good thing for citizens. Most Americans have not even paid attention to this, and that is not a good thing for the United States. Citizens should realize if they don’t keep up with politics, it is easier for the government to get away with things the United States citizens disagree with. Religion is a choice in the United States, and if an American citizen wishes to speak about it, they should be allowed to if it offends somebody else or
America is having a lot of trouble with today’s government. Many people agree that the government is unjust and is not as free as stated. Although American citizens get a lot of freedoms, politically our country is unfair. With the “elected representatives” they do not produce what the people want. Simply not having many voting citizens, many debates such a gun debates, and police brutality take part in the not so democratic government of the United
Many of these people that get sponsored never become citizens, work under the table which makes it impossible for them to pay taxes. Instead of helping our economy they have added to our population, taken away potential jobs for actual tax paying citizens. This strain on our country is totally avoidable if we were stricter on what constitutes someone as a natural born citizen. By regulating our visa’s more thoroughly so that when they expire people aren’t able to slip through the cracks, also better monitoring of our boarders and harsher punishment to violators.
