    We always need more government in some places and less in others. Pretending the absence of government will set us free merely offers anarchy. We are organized under a government that more or less hinges on the core ballot of voters. Voters.....who do not know the difference between the Parties.

    Not yes, but hell yes! They balance out the vote of the misinformed. There's a lot of that going around.

    Voting is a right so if you meet the necessary requirements there isnt much you can do but let 'em vote.I do however think that everyone be required to take a civics class or two or watch every episode of 'schoolhouse rock'.

    Uninformed people aren't as bad as irrational people, and irrational people are far more common too. If you think that this only applies to one party, then you're one of them.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    This poll is inherently unanswerable, because the OP didn't clarify what "uninformed citizen" means.
    "A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons." --Hillary Rodham Clinton
    "Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections." --Mitt Romney

    Who decides who is "uninformed"?
    Don't work out, work in.

    Not sure I agree that the irrational outnumber the uninformed, but I agree completely with the other part so much that I want to quote it myself when the opportunity arises.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Yeah, I guess there are a lot of uninformed people.

    They are many other reasons why some people choose to not buy a house.

    Frequent relocation
    Don't like yard work
    Can see through the bologna that it's a great investment
    Don't want to have to replace major HVAC, plumbing, electrical, appliance, etc. failures
