    To people who would consider themselves being discriminated against...much like black were when given tests in order to vote...would most likely see themselves disenfranchised....and in sort of a social jail.

    Oh, an imaginary jail. don't worry, they have plenty of space, there's even imaginary jail planets on cartoon network. I'd love to chat with you about reality-based politics when you get back to reality.

    I see it 5-4 Conservative right now as Kennedy usually votes with the Conservatives. you lose again.

    Everyone who votes should have a basic idea of the candidates stand on the issues and to round them up at bus station or on the street corner, and giving them a cell phone or some other gift to vote is wrong.

    Don't wanna talk about your idea being discriminatory and disenfranchising... which is illegal thus far? Is that reality enough?

    I bet you want religion taught in schools, too.

    Re: Should willfully ignorant people be allowed to vote

    I don't know how it would be fairly determined, though we don't allow many ex-cons to vote, but I figure most voters are like a small pet or child. I can be fond of them, but i wouldn't want them deciding much of anything of importance. There's plenty recent history demonstrating how imbecilic the average voter is.

    That is a low blow my left wing friend........The only people who would want religion taught in public schools are your radical Islamic friends.
