“Irrationally angry, protest voter-types and single issue voters” make up a significant part of what is generally referred to as the democratic process. As is often pointed out, democracy is messy but I would not want to live under a system in which voters had to be vetted by someone like you. A problem with those who consider themselves superior by virtue of intelligence, education, or morals is the compulsion they seem to feel to dictate how others should think, feel and behave. Your ideas have been tried and they did not work out so well. The vulgar unwashed masses actually tend to do okay when given the opportunity. I don’t think they need self-appointed referees to rank them according to IQ and subjective criteria of open-mindedness.
