House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to lower the voting age to 16.
Why she chose this random age as the right time for someone to be able to walk into a voting booth and choose our elected officials, who knows? Likely, it has to do with gathering more support for the Democratic Party.
Yes, at 16 most people are able to operate a motorized vehicle. But does that mean they are mature enough to vote and make decisions that will have an effect on the lives of others?
Teenagers are capable to some pretty stupid, insane acts. In order to show just how idiotic Pelosi’s suggestion of lowering the voting age truly is, social media responded with some of their own decisions as a 16-year-old.
When I was 16, my friends and I threw bowling pins into the air above us, and closed our eyes. First one to run away from the falling pins had to go catch a raccoon. https://t.co/05XQBj9oti

When I was 16 I poured and licked acid off my hand during a chemistry final to figure out if my last unknown solution was that or water. And I was an honors student https://t.co/XQvn0Fp9nZ
