Glad to hear that you've gotten results you were looking for Chris. Good news.
Yes we are, unfortunately.Ok my annual question series - first .… are we a Democracy? Yes or no?
That's a pretty strenuous test, and a disadvantage to those with little education or been out of school a long time. I think a more simple and telling test would be - who is the current president and Vice President of the US? Or perhaps "how often is the presidential election held". LOLLike I said ages ago as a qualifier for voters; have a brief multiple choice quiz at the beginning of all voting. Make it fairly easy, but only really stupid people would fail it. Thus we should only count votes by barely competent voters. Of course none of that is useful if criminals are counting the votes(altering the votes).
Easy questions, how many stars are on our US flag, how many Senators are there etc? Make it stuff that anyone that's ever paid attention to the US, should know, even illegal aliens would know. Most idiots are not paying attention to the country or the world, and don't care, so they would fail such an easy quiz.
