    Not at all, voting should require something.
    Read what I actually wrote. If you did you wouldn't post such asinine bull****.

    If we allow every moron to vote, why not allow children?
    Why stop there though? Why not bar homosexuals from voting considering 85% of this country has religious disapproval of homosexuality? What about parties which do not fit the perfect democratic picture? Why not poor people? Why not old people? Why not young people? Why should we let you vote? How do I know you're not a moron? For all I know you're just some dumbass poor, gay homosexual student with piercings. Why should we let you vote?

    You do realize that this would be equivalent to charging people to vote don't you?

    And who decides exactly what is on the test, how it is worded, what score you need? Who is going to pay for this?

    You effectively want to create a LARGER government to handle this.

    Why is this necessary?

    A test like this is one of those things, in theory, I like.

    In practice, I don't.

    In a perfect world it'd be relatively simple, straight forward, focused on basic civics things.

    In reality I could see it horribly manipulated and used to attempt to exclude portions of the population that SHOULD be voting (IE Not just illegal immigrants, of which I have no problem weeding out from the voting process because they SHOULDN'T BE VOTING) and used to reduce the liberty of citizens of this country.

    Its a great thing in theory, but I'd be against it in reality because once you add the human element to it it falls apart

    Isn’t that what the attack on ACORN is all about?Trying to marginalize the poor.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I don't even like it in theory. I should be able to choose who I vote for, for whatever reason I choose. If I want to vote for obama cuz he has a nice butt, who the hell has the right to tell me I should not. This whole thing is nothing but elitism, we don't like the election result, so it can't be that the people voted based on reason, it has to be that the electorate is too stupid.

    So, raise taxes and pump more money into education. Problem solved.

    Anyway, Harry, you're ignoring what the article described as the tone of the speech - "the cult of multiculturalism". I wasn't there, but based on the information in the article, putting the quoted section of the speech in the that context, it is absolutely veiled racism.

    I find it ironic that there's a call for a civics, literacy test at a convention where Sarah Palin is speaking. Talk about the elephant in the room.

    Yes, ideally we want the voting public to be as informed as possible, but the Vice-Presidential candidate shouldn't need a U.S. history/ poli-sci refresher course before they let her speak in public.

    In other words, the Tea Party people are on the right track.

    When...um...what's the word I'm looking for?.....right! When RETARDS are allowed to vote, the candidates that get elected are often retards. Obama is a perfect example of what happens when incompetent ignorant people are allowed access to the polls.

    No, he said that ignorant people shouldn't be allowed to vote.

    You think ignorant people should be allowed to vote?

    Do you give your three year old child the steering wheel when driving 60mph down the freeway?
