But do you say the same thing about Watters world on Fox?
I just knew someone would bring up that red herring, Doug.Wow...a bit surprised here...not unexpectedly, though.
People who are part of the "power base" have tried for centuries to keep those who are a threat away from the voting booths. Poll taxes that kept the poor from being able to vote. Unreasonable requirements for voter registration. All of them have been declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, which seems to share my belief that every LEGAL (i.e. not the undocumented immigrant population) citizen of our country should be allowed a small, but equal, voice in who runs our country.
What would you want in this case? A mandatory IQ test in order to get a voter registration card? I can assure you that almost every IQ test out there has some cultural bias...have given IQ tests for 25 years, so I am pretty familiar with most versions.
Sure, there are times I'm amused by some of the things people tell Jay Leno...but isn't amusement the intent of the feature?
Sorry, guys, I have championed access for the differently abled for all of my 33 years in public education...this just sounds like effit snobbery to me.
This made me laugh. Its a bit like when the exit poll`s are conducted and you hear what some of the numbnuts say in response to their election choice. How they even worked out how to get there would appear to be a miracle. One woman said of Tony Blair " I dont like his cheesy grin" Nuff said.You may be interested to know Jim that Australia has compulsory voting, and I agree with you that it is bullshit. We have a huge "donkey vote" where people who don't give a shit or are limited by only one or two brain cells just tick the first name on the ballot paper to fulfilled their legal obligation. One really sure way of getting elected is to have your name first on the ballot paper.
I did. ONe was from Ohio by the way, and two looked to be about 12. But regardless, my point remains. I see just as much ill informed crap posted HERE on this message board as in that video.Jeff you did listen to the responses? It is sad that these are people in California who may vote and raise children just as illiterate. Just fodder. Slander? Their words from their mouths. I just hope some were joking in front of the camera.
The above is a good example.I didn't say this is a "set up" but there was significant editing of those that made it to the final edition that was on TV. Even WW edits there stuff as if it was not funny (sad) who would watch it. Proving that there are people that are incompetent is just the same as making them vote to. Its the reverse of paying for people to vote for you. At least that was the idea of the liberals that put O in office. Remember ACORN.
Lastly I want to say that if you are receiving money from the government for welfare, you should be considered a ward of the government and excluded from voting as you have a predisposed consideration that you are protecting. Also while there are many countries that allow others to vote in their elections, the USA constitution specifically identifies US Citizens as voters. non citizens, convicted felons, and Doug(just a joke) are not allowed to vote. That means naturalized citizens, and those born in the US are allowed to vote. Guess what is not being followed.
