Key word: capture.
Why not six then?
Young skulls full of mush. It should go back to 21 but not as long as you can become a service member at 18.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) voiced her support on Thursday for lowering the federal voting age to 16, telling reporters during a press conference that doing so would be a boon to voter engagement in the U.S. “
Sometimes I favor leaving 16-year-olds on a tropical island for a year as part of manhood training. Those that survive could vote after they recuperate. Then, I’m currently parenting a sixteen-year-old, so I’m biased. Nancy has bodyguards to protect her from anyone under 30, so what does she know.
interesting. Now, where is that Hans-Hermann Hoppe book I used to have ... something about democracy and a god that died ...
Lowering the voting age to 18 was insane, 16 is just a logical continuation of that insanity. Every expansion of the franchise has resulted in another step toward oblivion. We are not being kept from Nirvana by a lack of voters. We need a lot fewer people voting.
My 16 year old high school junior just came home with a voter registration form! Apparently this is an area that need me to be looked at much, much closer. Cant vote for Trump until 2020 but here you have personal info on a youngster being provided to partisans way in advance of legal voting age.
Are they stealing identities, voting for them, targeting our youths? All of the above? You cant even get a credit report on your kid at this age. When they hit 18, are they gonna find accounts open in their names? No reason whatsoever for a 16 year old to register to vote right now. None.
The commies are harvesting.
SCOTUS doesn’t allow capital punishment for those under 18, with Kennedy saying their brains aren’t fully developed and cannot appreciate the consequences of their actions.
And now the Dems want 16 year olds to vote ???
He can drive to the polling place with mom with his permit.
She’s wacky as all get out. Sure Nance, got to reel them in before their frontal lobes are fully developed.
These are the people who think that a person’s brain isn’t fully mature until 29, and that adults under 29 should be carried on their parents’ health insurance, and not prosecuted as an adult.
FOURTEEN OR FIGHT, MAN!!!
It’s apparent that their attempts to get college age millenials to vote hasn’t worked. So this is Plan C (Plan B is ‘make illegals citizens’.
Sixteen is a child. They're cognitive abilities are not fully developed. They have zero life experience; have no understanding of the intricacies of politics; no idea about macro-economics; and will only follow what their teachers say.
Personally, I believe the voting age should be RAISED to 25, military excluded.
Too many Republicans are still fighting by "Marquess of Queensberry" rules and they are getting clobbered. When a real street fighter like Trump comes along to fight on their behalf, they don't even seem to appreciate it.
First, notice the word "capture". Secondly, HS kids have no interest in politics - they live for their social media on their devices. Third, they are no longer learning about "government" (civics classes).
If this came to pass, we would be Venezuela, Cuba, or the Soviet Union within a short time. Could even become the Western hemisphere equivalent of Zimbabwe. Bad enough our college students are learning socialism, we need our HS kids to learn earlier?
Half of the children 18 and under are minorities as classified by the USG. Each cohort that turns 18 annually is more minority than the previous one. Minorities vote more than two to one for the Dems. Is it any wonder the Dems want to lower the voting age to 16?
And our schools are Dem indoctrination centers. Demography is destiny.
Anyone notice that this pretty much corresponds to Democrats’ push to lower the age of (sexual) consent?
“If they can vote, they can have sex.”
There's a good reason why everyone's auto insurance payments drop significantly after age 25: that's about the age where sound judgment rather than impulse starts to rule your life. Naturally, impulse-based thought patterns are exactly the ones most receptive to the promises of "free stuff" and grievance claims that the Left likes to peddle.
What further proof do you need that AOC, Omar and the Young Radicals have won the battle. This is Nancy raising a white flag.
