It would align well with the founding father's morality and worldview.
If you were not a white male and "in good standing", which meant wanted by the law or debtors. You were qualified to be a US citizen.
So you had human with full vested rights under God --and not exactly.
Other than fully vested citizens, all you had was slaves, plebes and women.
Oh, to go back to those ideal times when wise people understood how things should work. Let's go back to that. I would definitely benefit and that's what matters.

I think there's only been 3 months of my adult life where I didn't pay taxes. If I'm paying, I should have representation for every aspect of my life, right? For being a Vet, or for other things in my life, like being a worker.
But what about people who don't pay taxes? Should they have representation??
