we swimmies require every fish to vote. because that is what democracy is. if you ban some fish from voting, because they are differently colored, or they were a bad fish, or they decided for some bizarre reason to change their name to match the name of a mate, then you do not have democracy. you just have a bunch of opinions, and then a few fish making all the decisions.
and that never works out well for the majority of the fish.
you humans need to think about this problem.
