“A vote is like a rifle, its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.” - Theodore Roosevelt Do we need uneducated, random, and altogether unconstitutional forced votes clogging up our ballot? Those rallying for compulsory voting boast better representation of the lower class. If compulsory voting is so grand then please do explain why so many countries (the majority even.) do not enforce or even avoid their compulsory voting laws in place. The lower class needs to be better represented, the middle class strengthened, more Americans need to vote, but forcing people to is not the answer.

Curran that the United States suffers from serious disparities in wealth distribution. However, before I agree to join him on the barricades, I have a few questions about the democracy for which I will fight. What does it look like? Mr. Curran argues that regular and frequent elections, part of a dictionary definition of the term , are not sufficient for democracy. Perhaps he would point to a second dictionary definition of “democracy,” “an organization or situation in which everyone is treated equally and has equal rights.” That sounds good, but reasonable people have long argued about the meaning of “treating people equally.” Is equality “equal protection of the law” or is it equalizing income levels, or is it something in between?
