Liberals and Dems have been accused of making it all up...
The voter suppression- disenfranchisement. Voter ID laws "to prevent voter fraud", when the risk is so minimal that it's silly. The intentional suppression of minorities through this and other methods.

Well, it's looking even more like it's a real concern- this is actually part of the GOP strategy. Not the voter fraud, the disenfranchisement. And that's coming from a GOP member. Read on for more details...

I'm a bit less skeptical now. Not much, but enough. This guy could be making it up, but then again he might not be. There's so little evidence that the whole voter ID issue was really an issue to begin with that this guy speaking up makes it more plausible that it's part of the strategy to keep minorities from voting.

Mandatory voting is the way to energise the centre and to promote moderate politics over extremism.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Just what we need... a core citizenry that have no clue as to what they're voting about. Not everyone is interested in how their country is run; some pay much more attention to the characters in their favourite soaps or whatever drivel Simon Cowell is currently pedalling. Should they have as much of an influence as those who can actually name some of their politicians?
