Should Voters Be Tested?
I agree with pretty much most of what Jonah Golberg is saying here, with the exception of instituting some form of testing to qualify people to vote.
Actually, I might even agree with some sort of test. Problem is, who decides what the test is comprised of and who decides who passes and fails? Sounds like a wide open invite to skullduggery there.
I understand Golberg's concerns, but I think he's not taking into consideration that when you give government the power to give you everything you want, you're also giving it the power to take it all away.
