Others have tried to warn immigrants of these disadvantages.
Although there is no requirement to learn the common language to live here, it is a requirement of citizenship, and with citizenship comes the right to vote. Few would argue that the right to vote is a an important right of citizenship. However, I must ask, which is more powerful, more important: A voice or a vote?
A vote is important, but it really isn't so powerful, is it? Every citizen has one. Indeed, in many elections most people don't even bother to cast it one way or another. What, many ask, can one vote do?
A voice is far more powerful, isn't it? A person's voice may persuade another to cast their ballot a certain way. Maybe even ten or a hundred or a thousand or more ballots. A person with a voice doesn't even have to vote to affect the outcome of an election. What can a person with just one vote really accomplish compared to a person with a voice?
What can a voice do if it babels? It may influence a limited faction but never a majority.
