Do you think it is fair that if you are not an American Citizen you can not vote?

Hello, I am protective_dusk, and I am here to debate on whether you are not aloud to vote, if you are not an American Citizen.

Reasons why it is fair:

Some reasons are fair, and here are some of them. If you legally live in America, but you are not an American Citizen, you can't vote. I sometimes think this is fair because if you work in America, you could work for a British company, and this means you could have lots of money, and you do not need to vote. Also, you might not even want to vote for any off the people who are running for president. They may not like them, or they just might not want to vote in the first place.

Reasons why it is not fair:

There are also reasons why it is not fair. I do not think it is fair because if you have lived in America for at least fourteen years, you are aloud to vote, but you might have lived there for over fourteen years, and still can not vote. This is not fair. In my opinion, you do not need to be an American Citizen to vote in America. You could be earning lots of money, and you are just loosing the money. You could be a good friend of the USA. I would find it really frustrating. All you need to do is just sign some sort of citiezen form. As long as you have lived there for at least fourteen years, I think you are an American Citizen.

After looking on both sides of the debate, I think it is not fair.

Thank you for reading my post! protective_dusk.

    I think that it is not fair as well. This is because if you have lived in America for at least fourteen years, you should be able to vote because you are also deciding on YOUR future. If you are not allowed to vote, then you could have someone you didn't like, but they won by only a few electoral points. Your vote could have changed that, and I would find that really infuriating.

    Hi I do not think that is fair that if you do not live in America that you are not aloud to vote because say this candidate does not have that many votes but the other candidate does . I do not think that is fair because they might have some really good things to change about the country but they do not have that much money . Where the other candidate does but does not have very good things to change about the country but has loads of money . The citizens have just voted from the most money candidate but have not thought about a better for future their country.
    That is my opinion. Thank for reading my comment .

    I don't feel that its fair to not be able to vote or become president in America if you were not born there because its a free country that should mean we should be able to vote or become president.They won't know if someone is a better president because they won't give other people from other country's a chance to prove them wrong.

    I think it is not fair as well because other people have the right to vote and because in th e debate with Joe Bienden and Donald Trump they were both interrupting and insulting each other which was really funny to see but they should be more respectful to each other an come on they were on TV.

    I think it is not fair because their may have been people who moved to America only a few months after their birth which means they count America as there home but still cant help make a descion about it. This would be very frustrating for people like this.

    I think it is fair because if you don't live in America you could go there for the voting day, vote then leave! So I think it is fair. Even though that people move from England and places all over the world to America and they get to vote is because they become an America citizen so if you want to vote in America become an America citizen! :)
