Democrats Want Idiots to Vote For Them, Literally

From FoxNews -

Ad the state of New Jersey could soon make it legal for idiots to vote. Democratic State Senate President Richard Codey wants to remove language in the state constitution that says, "no idiot or insane person should enjoy the right of suffrage."

Codey says the term "idiot" is "outdated, vague and offensive." He says some people with cognitive or emotional disabilities might be able to vote. The prohibition has been in the state constitution for 150 years.

All in good fun....

So where would they like to set the line for competency?

Isn't anyone (who isn't a felon) that's with it enough to go register ABLE to vote, too?

This is just a waste of time.

Actually, being a felon doesn't disqualify you in all states.

And if you wanted stupid laws, well check it out with a dot com.

It is illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy weighing less than fifty pounds in Idaho

And while I do agree that this is something of a waste of time, I'm all for cleaning up vague and outdated laws. Keep in mind that oral sex is still illegal in some states. (Not only am I for repeal of these laws, I'm all for legislation that requires it as part of mandated prenuptual agreements.)

Hey hey Nicho, this ia a family show here! LOL

In Florida, it is illegal to tether an alligator to a fire hydrant.

Go figure.

Brooke, the dems want those votes too.

Go figure.

If they want to qualify those who probably shouldn't be voting, would those folks be assigned a proxy? Isn't this opening a door for even more fraud?


Robert said...

Their core voters can't figure out how to punch a hole in a piece of paper. I think this is a moot point. The dems already own the idiot block.

Sorry it took me so long to reply...

Just so we're clear on the whole "felons voting" thing, Ann Coulter, under Florida law, should soon be disallowed to vote because she'll be counted among them.

Ah, irony...
