Yesterday, I was talking to my democratic male friend. He said that he feels you should be tested on your governmental knowledge in order to vote.
For instance, you need to know what you stand for, not just simply following the crowd.
He said that if you ask the majority of Americans who the Speaker of the House is, they wouldn't know. Some don't even know who the VP is, or that we have three branches of government.
It goes for both sides liberal and conservative. A lot of us don't know jack shit about what we are voting for.
I'm not sure how I feel about testing voters, but it made me think that people should inform themselves of the platform they support, in addition to studying economics a little, as well as watch some freaking Cspan once and a while, so that you have a grasp on the leadership in this country.
Any thoughts on this?
