Pelosi wants to lower voting age to 16

Making easier and more accessible is never a bad thing. We should always encourage people to get more educated and involved in our political process and part of that includes walking into a voting booth and casting a ballot.

However, the Democrats’ new push to lower the voting age to 16 probably isn’t the best of ideas.

 

For instance, do we really want someone who is more concerned about prom or The Bachelor than having a say in the political process?

They are legally still classified as children, unable to even work in some states. So, most aren’t going to have skin in the game, not paying taxes but yet having a say in how they are handled.
