I just never heard it put that way, and I completely agree. The push should be for a better educated voting populace and less of a push on the "JUST VOTE!!!".

I hope everyone who doesn't know which candidate to pick stays home, so people who care about the matter can have more of an impact.
Agree 100%
Not everyone should be able to vote. Some people have no clue as to what these candidates are all about. I don't want a bunch of uninformed voters going out and making choices for me. I think we need to start testing voters before they can proceed to the ballots.
