    • About what?

      (Seriously. When have I ever argued in favour of women voting? Give me one single example of a time I’ve argued for expanding the franchise in any way.

      My position is that people in general should be discouraged from voting.)

      • BillyHW

        Of course. We have always been at war with Eastasia. I’ll take it.

        Hang on you two. My microwave hasn’t “dinged” yet!

        “My position is that people in general should be discouraged from voting.”
        THIS!
        I would make jumping through flaming hoops of fire part of the registration process.

        • If they just stopped mentioning it it wouldn’t occur to most people to vote.

          • BillyHW

            I think all that facebook bombardment with reminders to vote, especially on the day of the election skewed the vote with much higher turnout than normal, especially of stupid young people whose main motivation was to oust that evil Hitler Harper so that we can have legal marijuana.

            Social media campaigning is one of Obama’s trademark tactics. You have good reason to hate him and I expect others will be revealed in the near future.

          • BillyHW

            BTW, I’m talking about messages and reminders coming directly from facebook/google/twitter etc. Reminders to go vote day of election. Pledges to go vote before elections. It was all about getting out the young stupid vote.

            Donald Trump puts everyone to shame when it comes to the EFFECTIVE use of social media. Obama is a dwarf by comparison.

          • Xavier

            True.

          • tom_billesley

            They should shut down Facebook access for the day before and the day of the election. That’s longer than the attention span of yutes.

          • Xavier

            Revert voting to property owners only, and exclude anyone on public assistance or who has tested positive for drugs in the last 5 years. “Sure weed’s legal, kid. But you can’t toke and vote, just like you can’t drink and drive.”

            Uh-oh that’s racist isn’t it?

            In the end I think Starship Troopers had the right idea. You had to earn your right to vote through service.

          There’s something to be said for disenfranchising those who haven’t yet paid off their student loans.

            That is why our carefree youth want free education–“just like Europe” said my hairdresser. Heard same from male and female nursing students.
