Jefferson... I think.An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic. Self-government is not possible unless the citizens are educated sufficiently to enable them to exercise oversight. It is therefore imperative that the nation see to it that a suitable education be provided for all its citizens.
With all the videos showing completely ignorant idiots saying they will vote for one candidate or the other with no logical basis for making that decision and often completely factually inaccurate reasons, why in the hell can't we institute a test for the right to vote? I think we need some basic test everyone must take to have the right to vote. We don't let the dumbest people even make our local policy yet we freely encourage the dumbest people to vote for the leader of the U.S. Why do we behave in this fashion?
