Election Lottery

| | Comments (0)

If you need to be bribed to vote, you shouldn't be voting in the first place. I don't want you picking my government, if that's what it takes to get you to polls. Sorry.
-- Tucker Carlson, on a plan in some states to enter voters into a special lottery, to encourage people to vote

I agree wholeheartedly with what he said, except for the "Sorry" part. I unapologetically say that you shouldn't vote unless you take a personal interest in doing so. There's only three requirements for voting in this country, two explicit, one implicit, and all important: be a citizen, be 18, and be interested. slashdot.org
