  1. Just so we’re clear here.. you do understand that those are not candid responses, right?

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they did actually go ask random people those dumb questions and just get a whole bunch of “what drugs are you on?” responses.. but that’s not nearly as funny, is it?

    I like when Alex Epstein goes to leftist rallies to get dumb people on camera. They know who he is and even say “they’re just after people to look stupid on their website” but those same people are still happy to spout off in front of the camera.

    1. Of course they’re candid responses. The key is that they’re cherry-picked responses, as these things always are. Nonetheless, it remains frightening.

  2. First – Trent, lighten up.
    Second – kudos to the lady at the end for giving a candid and honest response.
    Third – regardless your policitcal bent, that people this oblivious are indeed allowed to vote is indeed frightening.

      1. I will thank you to not put words into my mouth. What I believe in is not captured in my comment – I’ll add a “sarcasm” tag to avoid future confusion.

  3. Third – regardless your policitcal bent, that people this oblivious are indeed allowed to vote is indeed frightening.

    I doubt any of those people are allowed to vote outside of the US. 😀

  4. The one restriction among the original ones in the US Constitution on who should vote that I would like to keep is: only property owners. That would be a worthy replacement for the income tax credit for mortgages being eliminated, and would eliminate most (note, not all) of these idiots. We might want to think about a Constitutional amendment doing this, and consider whether to raise the voting age back upwards to allow for some greater proportion of voters to have some semblance of emotional maturity, too.

    Heck, Ann Coulter wants to take the Federal vote back away from women. She said it half in jest no doubt, but it’s an intriguing idea, given that a large amount of today’s societal ills can be correlated to the rise of late-middle-aged women running media outlets and political pressure groups, with touchy-feely results that we simply cannot afford to sustain much longer without crashing the entire economy. Feelings (not primal urges) tend to make people largely make good interpersonal decisions, but really lousy decisions about money.

    I’ll bet that paragraph will be considered flame-bait. … 🙂

    What states do in qualifying citizens to vote is their own business. However, to save them from a fate like Colorado and Oregon (thanks to California expatriates), as a native Californian, I would both apologize to everybody else for the idiots we have exported and advise all of the other Western states to place a prohibition on people who move to their state from California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Colorado from voting in state or local elections for at least 16 years after moving.

    Maybe even a generation.

    Or two.

    Or five.

    Idiots – these locusts destroyed the ninth-largest economy on earth by voting for middle-class government goodies. Now, after moving, by stupidly refusing to recognize what damage they did and voting exactly the same way in their new homes, they’re doing the same to other Western states.

    1. It’s probably a bad idea to get the IRS involved in who gets to vote or not, but it might be interesting if the vote were limited to people who paid more in federal taxes than they received in federal benefits.
