    "Disqualified" FOR BEING INSANE?

    Good Grief, do you hate The Democrat Party sufficiently that you'd outlaw it entirely?

    No, they're far more sane than the GOP who picked Trump; now that's what I call insane. :D

    Ah for the good old days when denial was merely a river.

    Given we're likely to get either Gove or May as Prime Minister imposed on us any time soon, we really shouldn't make judgements about the level of sanity in other countries. At least you get to vote for whichever incompetent gets to screw you over. :D

    Better than having Corbyn who cant even spell his own name, and is supportive of child rape in the name of islam and increasing taxes for the workers to help pay for unemployable migrants

    Right, but then they are still supposedly part of the problem. They voted for nothing.

    I just don't see the purpose. What exactly is the end goal here? Whether people vote or not, they are still going to complain about the outcome.

    In fact, forcing them to vote, when they don't care enough to educate themselves, will simply result in even more problems, I would think.

    If 10 Million people voted on Brexit, when they honestly do not know enough about the issue, and then didn't like the results, they would still complain, and still blame deceptive campaigning for their vote.

    You do realize that the easiest people to sway to an argument, are those who don't care enough to self-inform? Right?

    Well now you are forcing those people to vote. That's like a gift to propagandists.

    That's what I want. People who don't know, and don't care about any of the major political issues, voting for no other reason than because they want free day care. Talk about literally buying votes.

    I'm always curious about this "civic duty". I thought the point of having freedom, was specifically not be pressed in to "civic duty" by a king or dictator.

    Moreover, I have never considered voting to be a civic duty. If you don't know anything about the issues, and you don't care at all about politics.... you voting is a civic dis-service.

    Your civic duty should be to not vote, if you are ignorant and/or uncaring about the issues of the day.

    The more ignorant uncaring people you have voting, the more that showmanship, and propaganda is going to rule over the country. Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders is just tiny taste of what will come, when ignorant uncaring people, swayed by slick advertising and charisma, determine the course of the country.

    If you need a reminder of what that looks like, try Lenin and Hitler.

    Honestly if you combined the rheteric of Bernie Sanders, with the showmanship of Trump, it would be like a Lenin or Hitler speech. The only reason Bernie didn't replace the crime boss Hillary, is because he was old and grey, and couldn't whip the people up with propaganda.

    Go read some of the early speeches by Hitler or Lenin. They talk about the fat rich, the evil banks, the investors, and the bad 1%ers and the good 99%ers.... they read like a Bernie Sanders speech.

    Both are notoriously devoid of specifics, and talk very little about what specific policies they want to implement. Only that it will be great for the 'working class'. Again very much like a Bernie Sanders speech.

    And both were extremely showy. Very much self aggrandizing. Just like Trump.

    That's where your "civic duty" of getting people to vote, who don't know any better about any of the topics, leads to. Following your plan we'll end up in ruins, or in war, and likely both.

    Personally I could not care less if they voted or not, the stones were cast and the result is in. We voted for exit and the vote stands, the apathetic can not have a re-do just because the vote went against their POV they should have went to the polling station and voted.

    True and then when they dont get what they thought they were promised they behave like spoilt brats. Our forefathers fought for the universal vote for all and would be spinning in their graves now at the antics of the looney left hangers on
