You can't really follow what I said since you don't know what the socratic method is and lack the intellect to find out. Run along.

The Republicans keep getting busted trying to disenfranchise black voters in the supposedly universal suffrage system because they're more likely to vote Dem. Any kind of test or barrier would be abused.

You don't think it's relevant to your proposal to disenfranchise people with a test that the gop have recently been caught trying to disenfranchise likely dem voters in the form of black people? Is it relevant that poll tests have historically and openly been used to do exactly that in the past?

If you answer either question I will be very surprised.

Being a voter should take more than just being alive for a few years.

Passing the test to become a citizen should be the minimum needed to be able to vote.

I'd probably have to study a bunch to pass it myself.

I've said it for years and apparently Socrates agrees with me: More uneducated, ill informed people voting is not a good thing.

I would say each state should have some sort of minimum requirement, aside from age, to cast a vote. Maybe at the very least a proven proficiency in middle school academics but ideally a high school education or better. It would have to be something hammered out and would undoubtedly be controversial no matter what as most folks are used to age simple being the sole metric. What what you suggest?

I'd say leave the process open to all citizens who have reached the age of majority.
