    Obviously, if the government can force you to exercice you right to health care -- and fine you if you do not -- it can just as easily force you to exercise your right to vote.
    Too many ill informed morons vote already.
    In the last election people felt informed because they could recite Obama's platform.

    Yes we can.
    Now is the time we have been waiting for.
    Hope.
    Change.
    Unity.
    Pick her up, she fainted.
    With that the drones went to the polls feeling like educated citizens.

    It's why leftists chase the youth vote like a Buck in rutting season.

    But you know, they already do this in Chicago. In fact, you don't have to show up at the polls; you'll still vote. Multiple times. Likely for both candidates.

    hehehe....Chicago is corrupt.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    It's the same reason the right chase rural conservatives.
    Fascist
    Communist
    Nazism
    Terrorist
    Baby-eater
    Both sides pander to their base with catch phrases because the reality is the majority either can't understand the issues or don't care to. They just want the cliff's notes.

    On topic though,

    Even if this opinion piece shows the slightest public approval from some small town, this will never become federal law.

    Yeah, you have to vote multiple times just to offset all the dead people that voted.
