    I don't know if any of you had heard about this yet, it seems to be all over the news.

    I don't think this is such a good idea. Like people in the article pointed out, all this will accomplish is bringing large amounts of uneducated voters to the polls.

    EDIT: here's the original article

    Yeah...like we need even more of those. :rolleyes:

    Another problem I have with it: are we really that pathetic/apathetic that we need a lottery to get us off our lazy butts to vote? Jesus, if you're going there just for a chance at the money, you are one lousy American.

    What's dissapointing is that the voters in Arizona will pass this, just like they will with other ridiculous measures like making English the official language of the state :)rolleyes: ), and ammending the state Constitution to make same sex marriages illegal.

    I hate this state.

    Maybe if you win you can leave. ;)

    Of course you will probably get drunk on your way out and end up in Sheriff Joe's Tent City -- and if you are a good little felon, you can be on the chain gang.

    This is a terrible, terrible idea for obvious reasons.
