...and should voting be required? * I looked for a related thread but did not find one. Recently I’ve got the feeling that our Democracy is suffering from, I’ll say it... no I won’t say it, instead I’ll use unfortunate and uninformed voters and/or non-voters. And I am very aware that my definition of unfortunate may be biased on several levels including political leaning. So what do you think, should there be any qualifications such as minimum education level? I also realize this could be a slippery slope argument and because the standard (the right to vote) could be manipulated, I have to say NO there should be no metric besides age, even if it sinks us. Discussion applies to any country of any MacRumors member. Please don’t call anyone or any group uninformed or the word I avoided (stupid) to avoid having this thread locked.
