Radical leftists like
Barack Obama rely on a largely ignorant populace to get into office and
Far too many people who
know virtually nothing about important issues or an individual politician’s
record vote for the likes of Obama primarily because he or she looks and
good while reading from a teleprompter
on a network TV channel.
Add to that the people who vote for the politician who promises them the
most freebies and you eventually get the kind of corrupt administration that
we have today.
Maybe if enough of these types of people understood what makes a capitalistic
republic actually work they would vote differently.
This is why we need a Litmus Test
implemented for anyone who wants to vote in any state or federal election.
I’m not talking about a literacy-type
test that was used prior to 1965 to try to keep blacks and other minorities
from voting, I’m suggesting a test with simple questions like: Who
is the Vice President of the United States and what are our three major branches
For those who have ever watched
the “Jaywalking” segment on
the Tonight Show know – There are a lot of embarrassingly stupid American
adults that can’t answer basic questions like these. So much for public
Anyone who doesn’t at least possess the most rudimentary knowledge
about our country isn’t equipped to cut through the all too typical
political rhetoric and vote for the candidate who has our nation and its
people’s best interests in mind.
We don’t let people drive a motor vehicle before making them first
study the rules of the road, then testing them to make sure they know what
they’re doing. Isn’t selecting the person who is going to “drive” our
country even more important?
I propose that we make all voters
read a short pamphlet that conveys fundamental facts about our republic,
then have each would-be voter answer correctly
three or four elementary questions at the voting precinct before being allowed
to cast their vote. Who knows – we might turn enough irresponsible
nimrods into informed citizens to keep Marxist ideologues like Barack Hussein
Obama from ever getting elected to anything.
