WHY WE NEED MANDATORY VOTING


Before you start complaining about our freedom and blah blah ….. let me list the reasons why.

1st reason  it would help our failing democracy by getting people to vote

2nd reason  it would stop the obstructions and restrictions that so many states have put forth

3rd reason it would force politicians to actually run on the issues, knowing that everyone would be forced to vote

4th reason it would stop all the talk about voter fraud

Of course fox news and the GOP (gods of poverty guarding old plutocrats) would be very against this as they are very afraid of all the people voting. They would have the tea party fools out in force braying about how their freedoms are being assaulted if they are made to vote and all the republicans in congress would be apoplectic about the possibility of everyone voting, no matter their race or how poor they are. We should at the same time vote by mail and/or computer and for those that are homeless then the library would be available.

What this would mean is that everyone once they are 18 would be issued a voters card and your address would determine the district you are in. Imagine is there were no lines to vote and no onerous restrictions on voting? We should have close to 100% voting then and at the same time we should see a difference in our government. We the people are the government and its time we acted like that. I am not advocating for penalties or fines, just a way to keep politicians from trying to obstruct people from voting. This is the only way to accomplish that.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to feedback. Peace

    1. I understand what you are saying, which is why I would advocate for no penalty- just would like to prevent any obstruction or restrictions on voting. We the people are the government and we need to start acting like it and realize that it’s up to us to use voting to be the government we want. Imagine how those peop
