Because I ran across this today:

About 'universal suffrage':

1. The association of 'suffrage' and 'suffering' has been made in my mind (and probably other peoples'), which is unfortunate for the promotion of democracy.

2. Stop telling me we have universal suffrage. (*note: is Canadian). If we had an all-ages-can-vote policy, we'd have universal suffrage. See? Universal. Not majority suffrage. Universal. Until everyone in this country (regardless of mental state, age, and all those other factors that come into play) is allowed to vote or in some way impact the way this government works, we don't have universal suffrage. Period. Find another word.
