It seems to me that people on the political extremes seem a bit dumber than most. So consumed with their identity to a political party, that logic is no obstacle. Kill abortion doctors, call the half black half white President a racist, insist he was born in Kenya when there's no evidence to support it.

This wouln't be a problem on it's own except that these people elect people into office. And those elected representatives promote this BS within the actual government! To the point where a congresswoman admits she agrees she believes Obama was born in Kenya and isn't a legitimate President according to the constitution. Another rep calls the president a liar on national TV.

Should an IQ test be required to vote, or is it legitimate to have paranoid conspiracy theorists as representatives in our government?

As a law it would have to get voted in first, and the dumb people would make sure that didn't happen!

It's a great idea. We have the dumb thing where readers of crap newspapers can be influenced by the dumb editors, and they get the vote to decide on government.

Stop daily mirror voters from voting for a start - t***s always end up voting labour

Sometimes there are intelligent people who have some wacky ideas about politics. I do understand the IQ thing. It would have to be a professional one and not one of those online ones.

I say anyone with an IQ of 130 and higher can vote.

I think it would be better to require IQ tests for those that are running for a political office.
