Required to take a test before voting?
Is it just me or does anyone else think it would be a good idea to have people take a short test before voting. I talk to too many people who say they made a big mistake voting for Obama in the last election. I couldn't help but notice that many Obama supporters had no idea about his past voting record or have any clue about his agenda to "fundamentally transform America." Many voted for him because he was cool and a good public speaker. I think you should know a little more about the person you are voting for besides that he is for hope and change. Hitler was a great public speaker and wanted hope and change. That didn't work out so great for Germany. I was not crazy about voting for McCain but when i voted I knew how they both stood on the issues. I know many voted for McCain without knowing anything about him, but i would bet twice as many uninformed voters voted for Obama.
