    Question Should Low-IQ People Be Allowed to Vote?

    Should people with low IQs be allowed to vote? Some people have the IQ of imbeciles, would it be sensible to expect them to be capable of getting involved in the political process of voting? Which would be the lowest IQ range that should be allowed to vote? Please discuss.

    I don't really think it's all the time the IQ that decie what people vote for a party. It's more about how they are apart of the society and how they are raised.

    I'm very uncertain where to put the limit, although all mental handicapt and forgein people shud not be allowed to vote. That is a point I stand hard on.

    What about you? What range of level of IQ do you want the voters to be in?

    I am rereading the Bell Curve and according to the researches they quote those with lower IQ's vote less anyway. Real imbeciles should be barred from voting anyway. Also the right to vote should be restricted at minumium to people whose has been born here as has both his/her parents, unless they are willing to face special tests or have done exceptional services to the nation.

    Also do you have notinced that the media portray the electorate of anti-immigration parties as low class, uneducated and other things. But are remarkebly silent with such terms when it comes to (far)left-parties that traditionaly target those groups

    For a time I worked with retarded people in a group home caring for them and whatnot. I attended an agency training meeting one time where they stressed the virtue of taking these retarded individuals (most retarded beyond real functioning, not just kinda slow) to the polls and letting then exercise their right to vote, I was shocked and appalled.

    I don't know about a IQ requirement as much as some sort of familiarity with the issues. I think the majority of Obama voters had no clue of his politics when they voted for him, a number of people have done research on this and so many couldn't tell you even one of his political plans or positions.

    This is true. A friend of mine online who is an American voted for Obama. When at the ballad, he said he had to vote for several people for a senate or something; he did not know who a single one of them were and just did it randomly.

    I am entirely sure that him and millions of other American voters are the same. They vote for what the media tells them to without having the slightlest clue about what they are doing.

    Democracy is false.

    Some people have the IQ of imbeciles,
    Ok!
    That was funny!
    It is my impression that most people in this society ARE Imbeciles, high IQ or not.
    Because, the ones with high IQs are simply Imbeciles with more incorrect information, and prove how fast they can recite it.

    Should people with low IQs be allowed to vote?
    Sure!
    As long as they are versed on who and what, they should vote for. What do you think the "News Media" is all about.

    Then according to the bell curve the majority of voters are representative of mediocrity - a dunce equilibrium. That will give you what the current populace wants in a government since it's representative of them. In this case - incompetent and gullible.

    As for having a minimum requirement for voting. I don't think that should be implemented as it strips one of their constitutional right to vote. What's needed is more education and research of the candidates. It should be common sense to someone who is going to vote to research their politicians.

    Correct, we can't influence this, but we can at least exclude people who have no idea what they vote for no matter the way they are raised, because of their inability to differentiate.

    I'm very uncertain where to put the limit, although all mental handicapt and forgein people shud not be allowed to vote. That is a point I stand hard on.
    I agree, that's what I meant.

    What about you? What range of level of IQ do you want the voters to be in?
    I don't believe in voting very much, but as I said, I would exclude at least those who would qualify as medically imbecile.

    I was talking about the medical condition of imbecility.

    How about repatriation of immigrants aliens, it's not ok because it strips them from constitutional rights? Amending constitutions or rewriting them is possible.

    What's needed is more education and research of the candidates. This should be common sense to someone who is going to vote for their politicians anyways.
    How exactly do you educate retards?

    Wrong, and by the way, I believe it is rather funny how on the one hand people on this forum complain about the supposed imbecility of the masses, but on the other hand brag about the "superiority of the white race". Most Germanics are not imbecile. They are perfectly capable of independent and critical thinking, but totalitarianism which has been the rule in many Germanic countries during the most recent times has taught them not to make use of it.

    I would not restrict voting on IQ alone. That would not be restrictive enough, and at the same time too narrow. I want a society where you will have to qualify for the vote by performing some service or beneficial effort, like in Starship Troopers or something.

    If then an imbecile could qualify, so be it. But I would hold that for unlikely.
