    I picked the single issue voter.

    Many of these candidates pick up on those issues simply to distract from their agenda, whether they support or are against them.

    The non-voter might as well be a non-citizen so is irrelevant.

    Look, I'm no fan of the uninformed or single voter, but for my money, every American who has the right to but doesn't vote fails Patriotism 101.

    If you are uninformed then you should not vote. If you believe they should, let's let every kid or chimp walk up and press a red or blue button. You wouldn't want your average joe voting on whether some new medical procedure is safe, so why do you want someone who knows almost nothing about the candidates to vote for a leader?

    How would you know who was qualified to vote or not? I would think that it would be a nearly impossible task.

    How do you determine if someone is qualified to cut you open and operate? Plain and simple, you educate and test them. Would you vote on new hires at your work without a pretty good look at their resumes? If no, then why would you vote on presidential candidates without looking at theirs? If you don't want to read through the resumes then you're not going to be selected for the hiring board.

    How would you test everyone who votes? Do you realize how expensive and time consuming that would be?

    Sure does in mine.
    When you have no one to vote for who represents your beliefs, and when you only have two realistic choices who both represent everything you abhor, why on earth would you vote for either?

    Well, one way is you SHOW UP! People who don't show up to vote obviously are unqualified to.

    I'm sure that lots of people who are NOT really qualified show up to vote too.
