So? Freedom was considered a privilege until 1865. The founders got **** wrong. The appeal to authority/tradition argument you are making is still irrelevant to our discussion. Repeating it yet again hasn't changed that.Voting was considered a priveledge under law until the 1920s.
It is certainly mythical because it is being overblown by people who wish to do nothing more than legally suppress the votes of those who are more inclined to vote against their party.It's not mythical at all.
I mean, you can't really be naive enough to believe these tards who are calling for voter ID's are actually interested in stoppping that which they gleefully take part in when it benefits them.
And how did that work out for them?It's not mythical, they had people crossing the Wisconsin borders just this year to vote out of district against Scott Walker.
SO are you saying you cannot use a logically valid and non-hypocritical argument justify your choice to designate the rights you wish to infringe as "created" ones, while designating those that you do not want infringed as "fundamental"?Actually Tuck, I'm getting at the nature of the rights. Voting rights had to be created even though they could have been assumed to exist based upon other principles. Like I said, if enough people vote for an idiot though we all suffer, not just people who happen to be in the wrong place when misuse happens. And, the less stringently we fight stupid votes and fraud the more of it will exist. BTW, gun control is something that depends upon prior restraint, or the assumption that the tool itself needs to be removed. Voter ID laws simply say "prove you are Mr. Calvin B. Johnson, esquire".
Because nothing you have written above does that.
Question: What difference is there between a stupid uninformed voter who just votes party line and a stupid informed voter who just votes party line?Sure, why not. Do you really think stupid and uninformed people should just vote party line and cancel you out?
Answer: Sweet **** all.
The difference in my opinion is that I really do want to scrap our current system because I think it's ****ed.
Yep. That's the democracy part of our Representative Democracy.The only part that resembles democracy is the actual election.
