There’s nothing the right loves more than taking away rights, no matter how wrong it is. Somehow the idea of making voting free and fair in an allegedly free and fair society is anathema to anyone with an R next to their name on a ballot, just like letting women make choices about their own bodies. The party that clearly supports gerrymandering and ballot initiatives to suppress voting rights is just going down the list of unacceptable people to force out of the White Christian utopia they all wanted ‘Merica to be (but shhh on that Critical Race Theory, there’s no such thing as racism in America, say the white people who whitewashed American history). Aside from women, people of color, and women of color, the Republicans are always looking for a new group to scapegoat instead of looking at how terrible they’ve let themselves become.
While trying to control anyone with a uterus in this country until they produce acceptable offspring (then both mom and baby are on their own, sucks to be you both), now the right wants to tell anyone they also now don’t have a choice about whether or not to procreate at all, either on purpose or accidentally. These lunatics call themselves advocates for the ‘pre-born’, which is like calling yourself an advocate for the imaginary friends you had when you were a kid. How do you punish people for something that doesn’t even exist yet?
Witness the hosts of “Fox & Friends”, who have arbitrarily decided that if you don’t have kids, you shouldn’t get to vote. Because you’re not raising a future Republican whose mind can be easily manipulated into drinking the Mountain Dew-flavored Kool-Aid while refusing a life-saving vaccine, you don’t get a say in the gummint. Instead, let all the kids vote! What could possibly go wrong?

The idea was recently floated by Ohio Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance. “Let’s give votes to all children in this country, but let’s give control over those votes to the parents of the children,” Vance told a conference on the Future of American Political Economy.
At American Compass conference, JD Vance suggests giving parents an extra vote for each child under 18 they have. (Give each child a vote, "controlled" by the parents.) He also says The Atlantic and the Washington Post will mock him for this, so pretend I'm not here.

The hosts of Fox & Friends discussed the merits of the idea that the “childless left” should not be able to vote. Co-host Pete Hegseth pointed out that fellow co-host and subjugated human baby factory Rachel Campos-Duffy would get nine votes because she has nine children.
“I don’t know about that solution, that seems not feasible,” Campos-Duffy said. “But I will say that I agree with the premise of it, that it is absolutely true that people like [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez], Pete Buttigieg — you can name the left-wing politicians, people who think that we should legalize marijuana because they don’t have kids and they don’t really have a stake in what that looks like. Do you want to pass AOC’s America off to America or J.D. Vance’s?” Campos-Duffy continued because she doesn’t know what words mean. “American Marxists want to tear down the American family.”
