    Educated in that they need to demonstrate at least a basic knowledge of how government works at the level they are voting on.

    How different would things look if we only allowed the intelligent and educated to vote?
    Good luck with that. How about just requiring that they need to be smart enough to acquire a legitimate photo ID and show that before voting?

    given the political inclinations of our PhD's, you may not want that .


    as for me, I'd prefer a simple poll test. basic stuff like "what are the three branches of government".

    There should also be basic questions that pertain to the certain election. Like "What are the powers of the president?" and "How many people fill the Senate?"

    Hey, maybe if we pretend that Romney is a conservative, we can also pretend that his appointees will be conservative. I see many conservatives still pretend Reagan was the perfect conservative, ignoring the ridiculous spending of his administration is one thing, but they seem to forget about that Kennedy selection too.

    So you get that everyone. Make sure to vote conservative, we would hate to lose by seeing Obama overspend and appoint some Kennedy clone to the bench.
    purists may have use in academia or on debate boards but in the real world they are often worse than the opposition

    when it comes to things like economics or crime control they tend to reject facts and empirical evidence and go for emotobabbling or "Fairness" in contradiction to what actually works

    That's where this forum comes in. I am more moderate on crime control than other liberals, but I'm pretty economically liberal.
