If your government checked IQ levels of people and anyone below a certain IQ level was to lose their voting rights, would you support such a decision?

nah, the choice of the candidates is made by the rich and powerful - the vote is a sham to keep the population complacent.

Yeah, I wouldn't have to wote anymore

No. And have an above average IQ. So it wouldn't matter.

Elitism doesn't pay off. Never has. And yes, I know that is exactly what we have. Yet why it doesn't work.

positively. this move (if ever possible)would raise the countrys intelligent decisions,economies ,quality of life and surge past the idiotic stupidities of present day politicians

I don’t think so, this leads to abuse by authoritarian politicians and legislators. There’s no way it could be done fairly.
[@1062793,BackyardShaman] would you still say this if you belonged to higher IQ group ?

Sure[@1019539,mysteryespresso]
I'd have to think on that. It has some good points but it also paints with a wide brush.
Tbh I'd make voting mandatory.

Yes. People with less intelligence may not have the foresight to make the best decisions.

I would be happier if we had 100% voting, good or bad, voting is a duty, not an obligation. No more gerrymandering BS or voter suppression, votes don't get counted until 100% of people have voted and the votes are tabulated. National Election regulations that are the same in every State and regulated Federally for Congress, Senate and for President.
