"People should get off their butts" to register and vote

Senator Rand Paul just finished a visit to the UK College of Law, which was sponsored by the Federalist Society.  I was on the panel to ask questions.  In response to my question about how we can fix our election system, after he first said that the story about the 102-year-old woman who waited 6 hours in line to vote was fanciful because anyone would have let her cut the line, part of his response was the following gem:

"It should require some effort to register and vote.  People should get off their butts."
