Issues that affect property rights should only be voted on by property owners

It looks like us Lansing residents are going to have the chance to vote on increasing property taxes.

Great (of course the council could still jam it down our throats w/o a vote), but what about the people that don’t own property? Of course they’re going to have a vote, but the question is, should they?

I would think not. After all, it’s bad enough that votes allow a majority to impose their will on the minority, but even worse that someone who “doesn’t have skin in the game” would have the ability to affect its outcome.

Just a thought…
