    I'm not sure I would go that far but perhaps you should have to be born to at least one parent that was born here, that would keep the children of immigrants from voting unless they married an American.

    The perception of fairness, it's part of human nature and you don't want to create an opening for a movement to reform the limits on voting that might give immigrants granted citizenship the vote.

    You also don't want to give immigrationists an excuse to lobby for excessive immigration because they won't be able to vote for 3-5 generations.

    The better idea is to let them vote, just secretly don't count their votes.

    Same thing goes for women.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.
