Make voting a privilege where you have to show some basic knowledge in civics to be able to vote. I'm tired of career politicians who sway people with emotional rhetoric. v
    A means test would be worthless in this day and age. Especially with cellphones that can access the internet. Plus it would be too costly. It would also open the doors up to abuse and disenfranchisement.

    And voting should never be considered a privilege. That leads to tyranny.

If Obama is reelected, or if Romney beats him and is elected, and you happen to be one of the ones who didn't vote for either, don't bitch about government being ****ed up. Obama and Romney are not the problem. YOU ARE!! When you don't give a **** long enough to turn off Dancing with the Stars and get your flabby ass off the couch just long enough to vote or otherwise participate, then you deserve the government you end up getting. Stop whining about your government. By your inaction YOU helped to create it, so just shut your ****ing mouth. I don't want to hear it. Just live with what you helped to create, and may God have mercy on your pathetic soul.

    You know I have yet to find anything from George Carlin that I haven't agreed with. Even his rants against religion are oh so true. And this is coming from someone who fully believes in God.
