Barrier

I think it’s a good thing that people who can’t figure out how to use the post office refuse to vote. If this is too complex, then figuring out who to vote for is downright insurmountable.

  1. Overall I think that this country goes too far in some of the obstacles to voting (e.g. what’s happening in Georgia right now). Still, I wish that the Democrats weren’t quite so eager to embrace the voters who don’t have their shit together. Sometimes it feels like their stance is:

    “The guy who misspelled his own name? Definitely one of ours. Gotta stand up for him!”
    “Everyone who’s lost their ID? Totally ours. Definitely.”
    “Yeah, the people who mailed their forms in late? Totally our supporters. We’re counting on them!”
    “And don’t forget the people who punched the wrong hole on the ballot! Definitely our core supporters!”

    Don’t get me wrong, I understand that anyone can make a mistake, and that plenty of people don’t have it easy and have valid excuses. (And dead God I hate an era in which I have to make a ton of disclaimers about disadvantage anytime I want to suggest that some adults need to get their shit together.) And I understand that making allowances for them also means that some total slackers will vote. Fine.

    I just think the opposition party might fare a little better if their motto wasn’t “We are proud to count on the support of anyone who manages to fuck this up.”

    It’s especially strange in that the Obama Administration (and to a lesser extent the Clinton Administration) was a well-oiled* machine compared to the Bush 2.0 and Trump Administrations. Yet Democrats who seem to have their shit together on the job (at least in relative terms) count on support from people who, like, man, couldn’t find, you know, their ID? While Republicans who place an emphasis on personal responsibility vote for the most incompetent fuck-ups around.

    *Insert Clinton lubricant joke here.

    You are aware that many far-left progressives in the U.S. believe that voting should be mandatory for all citizens, right?
