Lowering the Voting Age

71 Views

The Democratic Party idea about lowering the voting age is insane. Even if this was just for national level elections. Most 16 year olds lack maturity and haven’t been through any kind of course in government or civics. They are very ignorant when it comes to the hows and whys of the political systems of the United States and the world.

Truth be told here, if any change to the voting age was to be made. It should be raised, not lowered. I would be for raising it up to 21 for all citizens. With exceptions given to any active duty personal in our armed forces. If you sign that paper and take that oath. You can vote, drink, rent a car, and do a lot of other age restricted activities.

But the real truth on this subject isn’t that the Democratic Party believes that 16 year olds are mature and educated enough to intelligently vote. No, they are hoping for just the opposite.

With the strong Leftist control over our educational system, the Democratic Party is hoping for an increase in their voter rolls. Since they haven’t figured out a way to have foreign national non-citizens vote in our elections, they are turning to manipulable children to vote for Democratic and socialist candidates.

That is the plan. And it must not be allowed to happen.
