And young people:


I think we can both agree that what we want is a "fair" system.    The
problem is defining "fair" - is it fair that (assuming an 80 year lifespan)
a 20 year old with 3/4 of a life ahead of them gets a vote that is the same
weight the same weight as a 60 year old with only 1/4 of theirs?   Is it
fair that people convicted of certain crimes get their votes taken away?
Is it fair that there's an age requirement to vote, but no age limit?

Then again, life isn't fair... that doesn't prevent us from coming up with
hair brained schemes in attempts to make it moreso.
