Tucker Carlson on Mandatory Voting: "Voting Only Works Because It Is Voluntary"


TUCKER CARLSON: Well, is he making classic liberal mistake of assuming everything virtuous ought to be mandatory. You know, brushing the teeth, put the seat down. There ought to be a law. In fact, voting only works because it is voluntary. You wouldn't want to be governed by people who are too uninformed or lazy to make it to poll on Tuesday. That's the whole beauty of it.

I would say there was a troubling part in his comments at the end where he muttered darkly about how unseen forces were trying to prevent lower income and minority voters from voting. That's racial demagoguery. That's what it looks like. In fact, in the last election, in 2012, African-American voters voted in larger proportion than white voters. That's just a flat out lie and it's designed to make people afraid and move them on the basis of fear and it's wrong.
