So anybody who doesn't agree with you shouldn't be given the right to vote?
There is a good argument for saying that if you no longer live in a country or pay taxes there, why should you be entitled to vote? Americans have to continue paying taxes back home for their rights to vote so we are lucky to have that privilege, but I don't see it as an automatic entitlement. And in any case, after 15 years we will lose those voting rights.
