Thank you @RationalMadman for accepting my challenge, I appreciate it!

First, allow me to define "territories". In terms of the United States, territories are islands or other patches of land within the jurisdiction of the United States but are not considered part of a state in the United States.  These territories do not have the right to vote, and I believe they should not have the right to vote. If the right to vote is given to these territories of the United States, it will permanently tip the balance of power in the United States towards the left. Therefore, leftist agenda will rule and represent the United States, which does not reflect the beliefs of the majority of the population.

Nothing in your title or description says the right to vote is to be on US's elections itself. Furthermore if the US is to call itself a democracy the only way to justify this dissonance is if they are former US territories as opposed to current ones since if they were current wouldn't they be essentially identical to a US State and this lesser class be unjustifiable?

These territories do not have the right to vote, and I believe they should not have the right to vote.
See my above rebuttals.

You have provided 0 evidence of this nor explained why left wing politics are a bad thing to shift the US towards, since most of the developed world has been shifting to the left as its progressed.
