Should we encourage the uniformed to vote?

I’m back from the Labor Day weekend.  I hope you rested from your labor and enjoyed beautiful weather.  As the daylight dwindles, I know I appreciate every day with clear skies and moderate temperatures.

Today I plan to prepare my second installment of my assessment of the Republican and Democratic platforms for the 2016 election.  For my first assessment, click here.  It’s all about jobs and the economy. Stayed-tuned for tomorrow’s post.  I put it on the back burner, while I attended to publication of A Ship of Pearl. Now I’m ready.

      I think that’s exactly the point that Marc tries to make, Julie. We should not limit voters to some sort “literacy test.” When we do, we disenfranchise groups of citizens, and at the same time, we may consequently support voters who are “uninformed in other ways. He’s a member of the Green Party, so his comments don’t align with Clinton or Trump.
