Apparently Democracy doesn't work when the voting base is stupid.

I haven't read the whole thing yet, but I figured you folks would like to have a look.

Exactly lord, what is best for some is not best for others.

Some people cannot exercise empathy and side with what is best for the COUNTRY.

They are completely dissolved in ego.

No compassion.

That is probably why the republicans are trying to force the voter ID issue.

Which is not even an issue, simply a way to keep honest compassionate people from voting.

I almost think that some people might be "too smart to vote" for lack of a better term.

They are too lost in the unconscious world of their story and how everything affects them.

People that are consciously aware in the now can plainly see the proper compassionate action that must be taken.

Regardless of religious or political ideals.

Read the political discussions on this board alone and you should reach the same conclusion as the writer of the article.

You're a pretty good example of someone who thinks he has the whole thing figured out, but actually has very little idea of what you are talking about. I'm not any different. Save yourself the time of typing a few lines about me being concerned about you, not knowing you, etc...

well said hokie. lordK thinks he does have everything figured out, but he doesn't even give the other side of the spectrum the respect they deserve. both parties are corrupt he's right on that point but to say fox news makes up lies and the only way republicans could win the election this year is fraud is a joke.

agreed on that, ,the Repulican voter supression tactics are disgusting, but its the only way they can win, fraud

You're either confused or just a straight up fucking liar. Democrats have always relied heavily on the dead vote.

i am not registered to vote because i am too dumb to care/comprehend politics.

I forfeit my 'right'.

I do agree that this should be a right for everyone to vote, it should be a priviledge. You should be able to answer basic questions in order to vote.

I would fail all of the questions asked to me, and i wont vote.

I leave it up to the people who know more than me

It would be a good one if you wrote it like an adult. Seriously you can't spell, use tenses, punctuate, etc...

I know how I'm only perceiving that, so again...save your time responding.
