"I wouldn't be bothered one bit if some of the rules of voting were reapplied as they used to be. One good point, is the need to be educated in civics, and another is that you had to be a land owner. The latter can be thought of in this way, as it was explained by a person from Texas. 47% of the people in Texas own land, or "property". 53% don't, but those 53% have the biggest sway in how the tax dollars are spent so that the property owners who are taxed on their property don't have any sway as to how those dollars are spent due to popular support, which leaves them at a disadvantage to a tyranny of the majority which the Founders feared with a system that was like the Greek Democracies.
Also, if you are a public servant, while you are in office, you are inelligible to vote for partisan political reasons, and the same for your family members too.
The 17th Amendment should be done away with, as it stripped the states of their representation in Congress, and with Senators no longer appointed by the state legislations, and directly voted on by the people, it is easier to brib them through campaign contributions as opposed to appointments by the state governments, where they will tend to have the best interests of the state in mind to temper the House's decisions. But like anything that involves man, it is far from perfect, and nothing ever is an "airtight" system. But it would supply us with a long needed check that has been missing for almost 100 years now."
