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.
