I would rather we have to prove that we know something before voting. It would at least curb some of the mindless and silly propaganda launched by the media and people would me a lot more likely to vote on real issues. People have voted on and therefore helped pass through some things that they absolutely do not understand. As a result, we will be paying higher taxes and will lose some of our freedom.
Had people not been swayed by the media, those who don't understand issues would have neglected to vote and those who truly know what they are voting on would be prepared to do what is best for the country.
