Homosexuality is a luxury and a choice. The increased amount of homosexuals is do to an increasingly nurturing society. (This is not about gay rights and whether or not they should have them. That answer is obvious)...

The US Ought to Substantially Restrict Voting Rights

MyDinosaurHands
Texas14

Groundwork: By substantially restrict voting rights, I mean the following: Via Constitutional Amendment, the US should restrict the ability to vote so that only people who are significantly knowledgeable in the realm of politics be allowed to vote. This determination would be made by the creation of a nonpartisan political knowledge test -- created by an equally nonpartisan commission, the members of which would be approved by Congress. Ideally this test would restrict voting rights to...
