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?
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.
