    Default What is wrong with literacy tests for voting.?

    They clearly do NOT violate the constitution though they do violate The Voting Rights Act of 1965. That is just a law and can be changed by congress at any time.

    It seems like common sense to insist voters be literate.

    People who say literacy tests are RACIST need to ask themselves - Do you really want to admit blacks are illiterate? Nearly all blacks are of course, but do you want to admit it?
    Reckless drivers are a bigger threat to you than all other criminals put together!

    It's only fair that the press is biased towards liberals since the public is biased towards conservatives.

    When the guns are gone, EVERYTHING IS GONE.

    Well for starters it would exclude dumbass Republicans from voting for Evangelical morons. Where the fuck would that leave democracy in America ?

    Because then people who can't read would be disenfranchised.

    You can give a neg a college degree, but you can't teach them to read.

    I'm glad libs exist, else I might feel racist if I didn't have them to compare myself to.
    Ape lives matter. Stop putting them in zoos. Boycott businesses that don't hire apes.

    That's how it should be . Why should illiterate people be voting.?

    BTW- many states ban felons from voting. That makes even less sense/ THINK

    Yes indeed. There are many illiterate blacks with college degrees. They major in some useless easy crap like African Studies and on top of that they get affirmative action grading.

    Libs loves stupid people. They're the easiest to manipulate. Stupid people vote for free stuff because they're too stupid to understand they'll pay a high price for in terms of both taxes and oppression. Stupid people create 3rd-world countries.

    Democracy fails when dumb voters overwhelm informed voters.

    Those that claim literacy tests are racist are claiming non-whites are illiterate. Same thing with voter ID complaints. Those doing that are saying blacks, etc. can't do what whites have no problem doing.

    There's lot of blacks in the south. That would hurt Democrats.
