I want to see a law passed that requires a background check for voters that proves they have good judgement. Or that they even understand how the government actually works (or is supposed to).

I'd bet the vast majority of people who vote couldn't pass a basic civics quiz.

Anti-depressants cause people to not think clearly. Would your proposed law include measures to eliminate the votes of those who are not of a sober state of mind... either with a history of usage, or current usage?


www.apa.org...


Women are twice as likely to use anti depressents, so the voting pool would be no different than the pre women's rights era was. Good luck with that flying over well. White people are about 3 times as likely to use anti depressants than minority races, so there would be another huge flaw in voter suppression. We all know that won't be allowed to ever happen. 19.1% usage by people over the age of 60. If I am not mistaken, aren't the elder population the majority of voters... baby boomers are still a thing you know. Again... not going to happen.

So, after all of your prerequisites to vote are achieved, look what you're left with to vote. The young people who live in the extreme minority now would hold the power of vote over the elders. Does it really seem logical to overlook sobriety factors to be able to establish a line in the sand of what's considered sound judgement prior to voting?

It seems a good start would be to remove the identity markers of identity politics which would help make the lives of voters easier, and would be a better plan than isolating a few individuals from being able to vote.

Imagine being such a failure of political party that you want to lower the voting age to 16 and allow illegal aliens votes to be counted in order for your party to have a chance at winning.

So your saying 16 is too young? Would you allow a 16 year old a gun because if you think they are mature enough to handle a gun than why would you turn around and say they are not mature enough to vote.




allow illegal aliens votes to be counted


That is just a lie that republicans push in order to explain their unpopularity in America because they rarely win the popular vote. They push this propaganda to make their gullible constituents believe dems are allowing illegals to vote. Along with illegals voting, they got dead people voting, people voting twice...etc

The only confirmed person to be elected due to fraud was a republican in North Carolina.
