'Motor Voter' Bill

April 03, 1993

Well, I see where the Republican conservatives have managed to water down the "motor-voter" registration bill to essentially eliminate voter registration efforts in welfare and unemployment offices. Once again, these people betray a basic mind-set, namely a deep-seated distrust for representative democracy.

Surely any real believer in our system would favor voting by every eligible citizen, which in turn calls for quick, simple, effective voter registration. Instead, those who fear real democracy where all can vote throw roadblocks in the way just as others in past years used the poll tax and literacy tests to accomplish the same thing.
