The constitution clearly lays out who can and cannot vote. There is a reason for citizenship. If you want to be part of that process that might bring change to your community, then become a citizen, otherwise you can express your views to those that represent you, but you don't have the right to vote for those people. It's simple enough.

This proposal is indefensable. Those proposing it should be spanked, then put on a probationary list whereby any further efforts to circumvent or basic civil code and self determination results in immediate and summarry removal from office.
