Only informed people should be allowed to vote
The concept of one man one vote as an indication of democracy or equality creates distortion of doing what is good for America (or any other country).
As an informed voter who spent hours learning about a candidate or an issue. Such voter constantly debates the issues with other people, and routinely examines how other countries doing things to see if we can learn something new from others.
On the other hand there are voters, who have never watched C-Span, or discussed political issues. Some people simply watch MTV, or soap opera, or sports? These people as uninformed, and caring, vote as an equal vote to the informed person with hundreds of hours of deliberations about what needs to be done.
So, is that democracy or even efficient way to gather public opinion of anything? I argue BIG NO.
