A proposal: Only people that have served in some kind of National Service will be eligible to vote. In any election. Thoughts?

Isn't it a dangerous precedent set to begin limiting voting rights for any reason kind of like forcing all Americans to purchase a private product.

They'd probably call for others to have the vote too!

Whaddaya think that sergeant who shot up 15 Afghans will feel when he gets home and when (or if?) he starts sobering up? He had four tours of duty, saw his mates blown up in front of him - what sort of education is that in creating an informed voter!!!!!?

Soldiers sent into situations of such severe trauma need help from those at home, both in and after battle, not ridiculous choices like R versus D versus Cuckoo-Clubber.

What next? Compulsory Russian roulette for all adult non-ex non-servicemen?
