I think voting should be made difficult...
...To separate the wheat from the chaff.
...This country is so bizarrely schizophrenic about voting it drives me crazy. We are constantly bathed in platitudes about how vital, wonderful, special, glorious and sacred voting is. But don't you dare ask the American people to put the slightest bit of effort into the practice. It must be convenient. It must be easy. It must be on my timetable, like a DVR'd episode of "Nashville" or the "Price is Right." Why not ask the American people to demonstrate that they appreciate the importance of voting?...Posted by John Weidner at October 30, 2012 8:29 AM
