On Morning Joe, Peggy Noonan said, "I am not one of those 'you must vote' people." This should come as no shock since Republicans always lose when we have a larger turnout, but her argument is that voters should be more educated. She even raises the question of rather the vote of an 18 year old should count the same as a 70 year old business owner.

A simple question to Noonan. What would become a good caliper for judging the level of knowledge before someone could vote? Would it consist of knowing the duties of the Vice-President?

Can you help us out?
