No, FFS, you start making arbitrary exceptions and you're opening it up to shifting it further...where next, only people with jobs can vote...people making 500+ grand a year get 2 votes. People behind on their taxes get no vote?There are certain categories of people whose voting rights should be curtailed.
A prime example is the Irish public servant cohort whose en bloc voting tactics decisively influenced the plebescite to return govts who would continue fund their extraordinarily lavish pay scales and pensions.
You start making exceptions for groups because you don't like them or some part of what they represent, you're leaving that crack in the door for that reasoning to be slipped in somewhere else to be used on others...or you.
