would you agree with me in saying that people should be informed voters?

i think that voters should be informed about the system as to get a basic understanding as to what they are voting for. they also need to be able to make a decision based on their understanding and not just a family trend.

I passionately agree that ALL voters should be fully informed and should be able to vote according to what THEY believe is right rather than what their families, peers, bosses or other social organisations tell them is right. In the end, this is the aim of 'education'. It is (or should be) there not to pump us full of facts and opinions but to teach us to form our own opinions based on as unbiased a set of facts as we are able to assimilate.

I absolutely agree! I think there's little worse than an uneducated vote. If you can't take the time to read up on what you're voting for in order to make an intelligent vote based on how you really feel on the issue and your real opinions....DON"T VOTE. Don't just vote because it's your right. VOTE because it's YOUR right and YOUR voice. :)
