I’ll Vote – You stay at home

Every election season we hear the same worn out theme about American voter apathy. What a joke. Thank God or Darwin that the apathetic stay home! The last thing we want are the apathetic uninformed hauling their loafing butts to the polling places. I don’t want them tainting our elections.

If you are too lazy to vote, stay home. I’ll vote for you. If you are happy with the status quo, stay home, I’ll vote for you. As long as at least one of us shows up to vote the system will be fine. The last thing you want in a democratic republic is to have the ignorant turning out en mass to vote. That would be a scary prospect indeed.

America – Disenfranchise the Ignorant

We must set a minimum intelligence threshold for voting. The last thing we want is people voting just because they are mere citizens of the United States of America. Voters must all be self-supporting. Nobody on welfare should be allowed to vote. The ignorant should not be allowed to vote. Their ignorance should not project onto my life through the electoral process. My general guidelines in order to get a photographic voter ID card would be:

Take a basic eligibility test:
Pass elementary school literacy test
Pass 6th grade English comprehension test
Pass a basic arithmetic test (add, subtract only)
Pass a basic geography test – be able to identify at least 5 out of 10 states on a map and be able to label North America, South America, Mexico and Canada on a map

I think we can all agree that these are very basic requirements. It gives the ignorant a reason to learn. It can be a motivational factor. If you can’t read, you can’t stay informed, if you are not informed, you should not be voting.

Voter Turnout – Careful what you wish for

Voter turnout is only a good thing if it is intelligent voter turnout. Please leave the ignorant at home to watch TV. I don’t want the ignorant figuring out how to spend my tax dollars. Let them stay home and eat cake. Do you really want hordes of liberal democrats motivating the otherwise shiftless to the polls to vote for socialist policies?

In fact, as an added protection against this growing threat, we need minimum voter standards enforcement. I have no tolerance for the ignorant lazy masses deciding how best to spend my hard earned money. I suspect that they would take my money and spend it on giveaways for the ignorant. Not if we act now. Urge your legislature to adopt minimum voter standards.
