    A morality test for those who have shown themselves to be depraved is exactly like using a literacy test to disenfranchise the poor and minorities.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice; but in practice, there always is a difference. - Yogi Berra

    •  Whose morality? (0+ / 0-)

      Really, take a breath and think about this.

      What is the likely negative social outcome of the maybe 100-500 thousand people you want to exclude having their right to vote recognized?

      Particularly given that it would be amazing if such people (the super-nasty rapists ect) had a 20% turnout rate if elligble, and baring in mind that their votes would be spread out all over the country?
