What’s wrong with 14, or 12, or...? Well, Nancy... first they gotta be born, before they can vote! Killing babies might not be such a good idea? Haven’t thought that one through, eh?
The amendment would have have been wonderful. However, they should have adhered to property ownership. Without ownership...just emotional BS.
Ownership is a priority for free societies. After removing rights for self protection - guns. Communists and Socialists then remove property rights.
Without protecting these, most fall into the state blind.
Bring back the draft - starting age 16. Compulsory military service or prison after high school - take your pick - 2 year minimum. 4 year prison sentence for those that refuse to enter draft
I don’t want more voter engagement. I want intelligent voter engagement. I want common sense voter engagement. These are hard enough to find among adult voters, but 16 year olds? Please. There is a reason why insurance rates for younger drivers are so high.
That is an unlucky number. 12 would work.
Not wise. Most 16 year olds would vote the same way as their parents.
How about letting pregnant women vote twice?
Why not just let all human beings vote and will just let the parents voted for them so good little Democrats can just vote D down the line for them
Luck there a little schemes are being exposed
Are great and wonderful president Donald J Trump is a master of trolling them
Living in New York City like he did all those years he knows all their games that they play
He clearly thought about running for president for decades before he actually did
Right after Obama the usurper the first Muslim president was absolutely the best time
Now look Obama if you see lately has actually been trying to lecture black youth to settle down and get a job and get married its really quite refreshing actually
Hes actually sounding somewhat cough cough presidential
Are great and wonderful president Donald J Trump has this influence on people
I thought public schools stopped the Civics and American History core subjects many years ago.
Many Millineals seem to prove that every day by openly displaying their lack of knowledge of the subjects.
No, no, no, no, no! These indoctrinated young numbskulls have heads full of mush. They should not be voting.
You make a valid point....there’s nothing to hinder or stop a 16-year-old kid from fake-registering. You could go out across California today and probably find fifty kids under the age of 18 who are registered to vote. Since no ID is often accepted, it’s a legitimate path.
But if you treat a 16-year-old kid as an adult, why not sell them cigarettes and beer as well?
Let’s teach the grade 9-12 students the tax system:
Tax each student 5% of what the average amount their ISD spends per student each year.
If the ISD average is $10K per student, then each student would be taxed %500. Maybe they would get part-time work.
Make them understand what it’ll be like later when they are taxed at much higher rates.
...Just rambling thoughts...
She’s well aware that 16-year-olds don’t listen to their parents, but are easily influenced by celebrities AND leftist teachers (because the leftists intentionally word their lessons to appeal to the rebellious, smug side of youth).
Well hell, they think kindergartners are adults the way they try to pump the LGBT and transgender issues into them at that age.
I can’t believe the populace buys off on that ‘stuff’.
It’s telling that she uses the word “capture.”
If fetus could vote, they would suddenly come out against abortion.
NOW and NAMBLA want to do away with age of consent laws so they can prey on minors. Why does this come as a surprise.
There is no tolerance for debate or dissent.
