Long lines for voting, especially those longer than three or four hours, provide a mechanism ensure that only the most committed and thoughtful voters actually vote. At the same time, the hours long voting lines discourage those who may not committed to voting or to our country.

We would have much better elected officials all voters had the dedication and wherewithal to stand in line five hours to vote.

Agreed, bearing in mind that perhaps some provisions should be made for dedicated legitimate voters who might have physical hardships/medical issues.
