If your argument is that 16 year olds should be allowed to vote because some of them pay taxes, don't be surprised when your argument is turned on you, and it becomes "all taxpayers and only taxpayers are allowed to vote".

Foreign nationals pay taxes, therefore, foreigners should vote in elections.

Who am I kidding, that already happens.

They already had a xir on Tucker claim exactly that. When he turned it around on xir and asked if we should be able to vote in their elections they were extremely upset.

am foreigner, permanent resident, pay a lot of taxes. am not allowed to vote. i can illegally vote of course, which of course I don't, because I want to keep my legal residency, i respect that opportunity that is given to me, and because i've some ethics. Most people here that are illegally on the terrority will illegally vote though. They always ask me why I don't vote. I just tell them they wouldn't like my vote very much. I'd vote them out.

I used to be like all those other people thinking it’s unfair (back in the day) how you had to be a male land owning white person to vote. How could I have been so blind. If we didn’t have forced migration we would be bordering on a fucking utopia. All the offspring of people who didn’t die for this country coming here and pushing to destroy the foundation of our nation. It’s only justice for them to die

Being a citizen who is a net taxpayer (among some other qualifications) is the only way to know that you are incentivized to have the government run efficiently and successfully.

People who receive more in direct public funding than they pay in taxes absolutely should not be allowed to vote. This is giving the parasite an equal say in how the host body's resources should be allocated.

Oh, as if our government has ever cared about equal enforcement.
