    Voting at 16

    https://dailycaller.com/2019/03/14/p...voting-age-16/

    WASHINGTON House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at her weekly press conference Thursday she personally would support lowering the national voting age to 16
    What?

    I myself, personally, Im not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16, Pelosi said when asked by The Daily Caller about her thoughts on the issue. I think its really important to capture kids when theyre in high school when theyre interested in all of this when theyre learning about government to be able to vote.
    It's really important to....."capture kids when they're in high school", Nancy?

    Why would you be calling them kids, Nancy? Perhaps because.....they are??!! You want to allow 16 year old's to vote? You're just admitting that they're kids....ie.nave and immature....and yet you want to "capture" their vote. They cannot carry nor own a firearm or even purchase cigarettes. They cannot purchase alcohol, serve in the military, they're seen as minors if charged with anything.....and you wish to allow them to vote?

    Stupid people make stupid suggestions.

    We should have the same age for voting as when children are no longer eligible to be carried on their parents' health insurance.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Because most would want mature people voting. People who have a grasp of the issues of the day.

    That would eliminate about 63 million current voters.

    16 year olds don't know sh!t from shinola. Allowing them to vote would be absolutely disastrous to the nation.

    Does anyone really think the latest pop star would make a good president?
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Of course the liberals won't be happy until a system can be developed which eliminates all votes in opposition to their views.
