isn't that basically what happened to the young men of this country already? You forgot to mention Afghanistan. Your generation is to blame for the worlds crisis. I wasn't even alive until the late seventies and your generation allowed corporations and the NWO to begin the following..I made a list

The people over 50 have something that you lack it is called 'wizdom' you gain it by living making mistakes and learning to judge people not the clothes they wear or their slick speeches.
If any group should be restricted from voting it would be that factor of society who gains more from taxes than they pay.
Let the people who pay the taxes decide how they should be applied.

What's so funny about this post its utter stupidity in the premise.
Try this one on for size instead: Some of the most illogical thinking, lack of life experience type of voting, and utter stupidity comes from people under the age of 25. I usually laugh when I read about some wind-dings at University protesting something--they sound hopelessly out of touch with reality.
I also laugh out loud at political polls with the under 25--socialist," the NDP will save us"--type of gonzo's.
A better idea would be to not allow those under 30 to vote, as they generally lack life experience, haven't had to raise kids or pay for a mortgage, or see how much is taken off their paycheck when the get their first job.
IN addition, generation Y is the most self-absorbed, coddled generation that may ever have been raised. You're mommy lied to you, you are not special.

These days, I realize there are smarter people in the older generation, but you had your rebellious 60's-70's and people your age at the time thought you were young and stupid.
But it is different, because your younger generation of awake people/hippies/ whatever; were the only sensible people of your era.
The rest of your parents were abusive and lacked common sense, they whipped you into shape, they never let you grow.
I think anyone over 50 just needs to step back and let the people who have a firm grasp of technology and how the world works do the thinking and voting. The over 50's should stick to gardening, and while we are at it we should make them sit an annual driving test, that could save thousands of lives. Why we let these out of touch grumpy old farts decide who runs the country is beyond me.
