As compelling, logical, and well thought-out as the “stupid Republican” argument may seem, I have a feeling Democrats wouldn’t be willing to put their money where their mouth is.
If Republicans are dumb (and Democrats are smart as implied by that statement) why not have a voting test? I know some people say it is unfair and unconstitutional, but who cares about the constitution? Constitution smonstitution.
Being a problem solver by nature (as opposed to a complainer), I decided to devise my own voting test. First I thought, one question test should solve this problem?
Can you read this? If you can, continue voting. If you can’t, you are in one of two categories, choose the option best for you.
- Immigration will be here to pick you up shortly
- Sorry, public schools do not offer refunds
Thank you for your time.
It is a great idea, but then I thought, what about all the idiots that are smart enough to read, but too stupid to make decisions like whom should be the next president? My mind wandered through some basic questions we could ask:
Who was our first president?
What country did the
win its independence from? US
How many states are there?
Questions like these are elementary, but surprisingly some Americans don’t know the answers - too many in fact. However, the logistics of the test became an issue. When would voters take this test? How do we stop people from cheating? What about time? People don’t have all day to take a dumb test.
Then it hit me. Behold, the perfect test to weed out dumb voters.Stumble It!
