Ohio constitution bans idiots from voting

Back when the Ohio constitution was written in 1802, the mentally ill were referred to as idiots rather then to more politically correct terms used today. So, it was written in the constitution that idiots were banned from voting. However, such provisions did not apply to those running for office, so it’s possible to elect an idiot into office.

    • Lol I’m from ohio too, and I know a lot of idiot and a lot of smart people. I did not vote for obama, don’t like obama, and don’t think I ever will like him. Just because I don’t like him, doesn’t mean I am a racist. That’s ignorance at its finest. I don’t like a lot of white people, does that make me hate all white people? Think before you speak. David, you are probably some ten year old kid who lives on some farm and wants to be ghetto. Do us all a favor and never talk again. Your ignorance and stupidity are overwhelming.

    • i think david is a prime example of why this law should be in place. there is nothing more entertaining than seeing some one talk shit to someone they will never meet, and at the same time proving what the person has said to be true. i am from ohio as well, and hell, most of the people i know are pure stupid.

    • David, judging by the fact that Ohio voters have elected Strickland, elected Marc Dann, and voted for Obama, I’d say Bob has a pretty good point.
