If America were to propose an amendment allowing children to be represented as voters through their guardian or parent do you think this is a good thing? For example, a parent of a young child will give two votes, one for themselves and then other on their child's behalf. What is your argument for this and why?
Here are some interesting links about that:
This is the most ridiculous idea I've heard in a long time!
Children aren't capable of making political decisions until they're about 18. In effect, such amendments would give the most votes to the people who have the most children. That's a far cry from one person-one vote.
