Taxes is critical, and, if I may be so bold, perhaps a couple of more:

Of course that would take the number down to about 1% of the population.

What I mean is, while women couldn't vote and slavery was still a thing back then, the spirit of the constitution was to promote true democracy and has since done that. While I agree that most people choose their vote for the wrong reasons, everyone's vote should still matter despite who they are. Everyone deserves a voice no matter how stupid that voice sounds.
I would have to question who taught you your history. That's not what our founding fathers wanted by any stretch. I think i understand your opinion though, that everything the government does affects all people in the country and that everyone in the country should have a say in who's running it. A valid point indeed.

Do you have issue with convicted felons not being able to vote?
