    We have a test for driving, why not one for voting They're both just as dangerous if done improperly.

    LOL - you're such a card

    We have a test for driving, why not one for voting They're both just as dangerous if done improperly.
    Absolutely!

    We have tests for everything we do, really - to get a job you have to qualify, to become a member of the legislature you have to qualify and be approved. In order to become a citizen you have to pass the citizen test.

    But everyone can vote no matter what

    Someone doesn't have to be highly educated, having gone through college to show a interest and knowledge of politics.

    If they don't test to permit voting then they should at least make an effort to inform the voter of what will be on the ballot. It's easier, now, because of the net - but years ago I remember wanting ot know what would be on my first ballot and even my parent's didn't know where to point me.

    The lack of unbiased information is obnoxious as hell.

    I don't want any "I don't know what that means so I'll vote ___" without any regard for WHAT they just decided on.

    Who decides who's qualified to vote? IMO, that is an elitist concept.

    I don't believe there is such a thing as the knowledgable many.

    It's actually quite easy. Howard Stern showed us a small example of how we can weed out the complete morons...

    Sorry about that...

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Yeah, Stern makes sense for the fringe's choice for an arbiter of who gets to vote.

    Best of luck with that!

    Thanks for looking past the point of the video and attacking a part of the post that has little to do with the truth. Point is, we know morons and uneducated voters exist. There are clear facts that everyone can agree upon and be used to test one's knowledge of an election.

    Blame it on
    Human nature, mans destiny (mans destiny)
    Blame it on the greediocracy (greediocracy)
    Fear of God
    The fear of change
    The fear of truth

    Add the Bill of Rights, subtract the wrongs
    There's no answers
    Memorize and sing star spangled songs
    When the questions
    Aren't ever asked
    Is anybody learning from the past?
    We're living in united stagnation


    Father what have I done?
    I took that .22
    A gift to me from you
    To bed with me each night
    Kept it clean
    Polished it well
    Cherished every cartridge, every shell

    Down, by the creek, under brush, under dirt
    There's a carcass of my second kill
    Down, by the park, under stone, under pine
    There's a carcass of my brother William
    Brother where, have you gone to?
    I swear, I never thought I could
    I see so many times
    They told me to shoot straight
    Don't pull the trigger, squeeze
    That will insure a kill
    A kill is what you want
    A kill is why we breed

    The Christians love their guns
    The church and NRA
    Pray for their salvations
    Prey on the lower faiths

    The story book's been read
    And every line believed
    Curriculum's been set
    Logic is a threat
    Reason searched and seized

    Jerry spent some time in Michigan
    A twenty year vacation, after all he had a dime
    A dime is worth a lot more in Detroit
    A dime in California, a twenty dollar fine

    Jerry only stayed a couple months
    It's hard to enjoy yourself while bleeding out the ass
    Asphyxiation is simple and fast
    It beats seventeen fun years of being someone's bitch

    Don't think (Stay)
    Drink your wine (Home)
    Watch the fire burn (Be)
    His problems not mine (Safe)
    Just be that model citizen

    I wish I had a schilling
    (For each senseless killing)
    For every senseless killing
    I'd buy a government
    America's for sale
    And you can get a good deal on it
    (A good deal on it)
    And make a healthy profit
    Or maybe, tear it apart
    Start with assumption
    That a million people are smart
    Smarter than one


    Serotonin's gone
    She gave up, drifted away
    Sara fled, thought process gone
    She left her answering machine on
    The greeting left spoken sincere
    Messages no one will ever hear

    Ten thousand messages a day
    A million more transmissions lay
    Victims of the laissez faire
    Ten thousand voices, a hundred guns
    A hundred decibels turns to one
    One bullet, one empty head
    Now with Serotonin gone

    The man who used to speak
    Performs a cute routine
    Feel a little patronized
    Don't feel bad
    They found a way inside your head
    And you feel a bit misled
    It's not that they don't care, yeah

    The television's put a thought inside your head
    Like a Barry Manilow, jingle
    I'd like, to teach the world to sing
    In perfect harmony
    A symphonic blank stare, yeah
    It doesn't make you care (make you care)
    Not designed to make you care (make you care)
    They're betting you won't care (you won't...)

    Place a wager on your greed
    A wager on your pride
    Why try to beat them when, a million others tried?

    We are the whore
    Intellectually spayed
    We are the queer
    Dysfunctionally raised

    One more pill to kill the pain
    One more pill to kill the pain
    One more pill to kill the pain
    Living through conformity

    One more prayer to keep me safe
    One more prayer to keep us warm
    One more prayer to keep us safe
    There's gonna be a better place

    Lost the battle, lost the war
    Lost the things worth living for
    Lost the will to win the fight
    One more pill to kill the pain

    Na na na na na
    La na na na na
    Na na na na na
    Na na na na na

    The going get tough, the tough get debt
    Don't pay attention, pay the rent
    Next of kins pay for your sins
    A little faith should keep us safe

    Save us
    The human, existence
    Is failing, resistance
    Essential, the future
    Written off, the odds are
    Astronomically against us
    Only moron and genius
    Would fight a losing battle
    Against the super ego
    When giving in is so damn comforting

    And so we go, on with our lives
    We know the truth, but prefer lies
    Lies are simple, simple is bliss
    Why go against tradition when we can
    Admit defeat, live in decline
    Be the victim of our own design
    The status quo, built on suspect
    Why would anyone stick out their neck?

    Fellow members of
    Club "We've Got Ours"
    I'd like to introduce you to our host
    He's got his, and I've got mine
    Meet the decline

    We are the queer
    We are the whore
    Ammunition
    In the class war
    We are worker
    We love our queen
    We sacrifice
    We're soilent green

    We are the queer
    We are the whore
    Ammunition
    In the class war

    Dictatorships don't have such a hot track record either.
