"Noted conservative scholar Ben Shapiro is just wondering why Americans can vote who aren’t landowning super geniuses like himself. He’s stuck in the ethical debates of the 19th Century. Next up is whether pantaloons are appropriate dinner attire.
Shapiro argued yesterday for some "required testing" before citizens receive the privilege of voting. He absolutely doesn’t want a "fake poll test, literacy test designed to exclude black people … or something." He just thinks we should have a real test that excludes people he doesn’t like from exercising the franchise.
This "idea" would exclude the president and most Republicans in Congress. Maybe Shapiro is fine with that, but I still think voting is a fundamental right and we shouldn’t deny it even to presidents who don’t know what Article Two (or Two Corinthians) is. Trump’s hero, Andrew Jackson, was a big proponent of universal suffrage with the only tiny restriction being your race and gender. By 1856, the requirements for owning property or even paying taxes were eliminated. You could even still believe in witches and vote.
Shapiro is especially concerned about the haphazard voting system we currently have."
