It is crucial that we as a nation demand citizens have the right tools and skills to vote and actively participate in the government; otherwise, people cannot be properly served by that government. Only people who have the ability, capability, and willingness to participate should be allowed to be served by the government. It is time that programs and mandates are put in place before individuals are eligible to collect any form of government subsidies, assistance, or handouts. For example, one must function at a certain level of literacy, complete a designated basic degree of education, register to vote and actually vote. Unless, of course, an individual is determined as mentally or physically incapable of meeting these requirements, in which case their status as an adult is revoked and decisions they are incapable of making will be made for them.
