A Voting Filter

Reading Twitter comments of followers of a certain democratic group (unnamed so as not to promote them), I find myself amazed at the sheer stupidity of these folks. It is just mind-numbing. One example is the many references to how wrong it was for the Federal Government to provide the citizenry the right to bear arms under the 2nd Amendment. Ummmmm, no. That’s not how things happened. The people provided the Federal Government the power to act and reserved certain recognized rights (such as the right to bear arms) to themselves and outside the reach of any government.

Another example is the idea that Brandon can simply issue orders to cap fuel prices thereby eliminating high fuel prices. Ummmmm, no. He doesn’t have that power.

There are numerous others, but there just isn’t enough time in a single lifetime to list them all. What this leads me to, however, is to call for a filter to be applied before any person is permitted to register to vote. Keep in mind, these lunatics vote. They have no concept of how the government is supposed to work or the powers that it has, yet they vote. Their vote counts the same as any person that truly understands how the government is supposed to function. It’s like giving a three-year-old a pen and ballot in the voting booth and then counting their ballot the same as any others that were cast. SMH.

People are required to prove some basic ability to drive a vehicle before providing them a driver’s license. But, we permit people voting privileges that actively illustrate that they are dotards. All they have to do is simply prove that they exist and they get to vote. OMG! There has to be a filter. Any person seeking to register to vote should have to illustrate a basic understanding of civics. Absent that, they do not get to register to vote. That’s your filter.

People complain and complain that voting makes no difference in the end result. Do you really wonder why it makes no difference? Perhaps, if we put a filter on the registration of voters, then we might improve the results of elections and, thereby, the functioning of our government. It would be nice to find out.
