I’m responding to John Weyant’s response (Letters, July 3) to a letter by Lloyd Brown. It would appear Mr. Weyant questions if Mr. Brown is capable of voting intelligently. That there is a movement to require voters to first pass an IQ test.
Hopefully, there isn’t much inertia to this movement. I follow mainstream news on television and newspapers and I haven’t heard of any real organization of proponents of these tests. Fortunately, this might indicate it hasn’t gotten much steam. Regardless of whether it may give us better government, it is against the spirit of America.
It seems harsh to single out individuals, however. If such tests were required it would mark the end of the Republican Party as we know it.
