Deciding Who Should Be Allowed to Vote

If we're going to decide who is not qualified to vote, I'd like to start with everybody who thinks an invisible wizard in the sky runs their lives.

In a modern democracy, we don't try to decide which voters are highly informed and thus "worthy" of voting. You can vote if you have an IQ of 200 and you can vote if you're a nitwit. The reason is simple: the decisions of the state affect both voters equally. Everybody gets to vote because everybody has a stake in the outcome.
