You're a congressman and a bill comes up to instate a test to find out who is "educated enough" before they can vote. You would vote:
This is the text book definition of Fascism.
I would love this, but its wrong so I'd Nay the shit out of that Bill
God yes. This country has been run into the ground by stupid. Please let this happen.
Nay, if you want an educated voter make sure you have an educated citizenry.
I vote yes, even if it will be unfair to republicans. (we are uneducated, after all)
I think it would be equally unfair because many democrats are poor and subsequently can't afford college and the likes.
All I hear from the democrats is how the average democrat is more educated than the average republican.
Stupid people should have representation too.
I know it's probably inhumane and ignorant to say this, but I'd love to see their protest signs and all of the mis spelled words.
Haha yes, it would be pretty funny :)
Um no. That sounds an awful lot like those selectively-administered civics tests they used in the Jim Crow era.
Yes, that's immediately what my mind jumped to.
Promote the heck out of (nonpartisan) voter education! But never, *ever* presume to "test" voters to see if they're "educated" enough.
As much as that sounds reasonable even dumbarses deserve to be able to vote.
Ew, why would I be a congressman?
Because you have to vote on this.
I could have made it where it was just asking if you approve I guess.... Idk what I was thinking, I think I was just role playing a bit.
