Democrats are now thinking about handing the keys to the country over to teenagers.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is apparently “collecting [her] thoughts” about the latest movement to lower the voting age to 16.
Too Young to Vote
Voting for a president is serious business.
The voting age is set to hopefully weed out impulsive and uneducated voters.
At the age of 16 — an age when today’s teenagers literally pop Tide Pods into their mouths for a few social media shares — are kids really ready to help pick the next president?
To anyone with common sense, that answer is no.
But this is not about common sense. This is about a massive power grab Democrats are making for the 2020 election.
Will They Move Forward
A measure like this was proposed before — and it failed miserably.
However, the new class of Democrats is selling this snake oil as a way to further engage our children into politics.
Most kids at that age are impulsive. They are also heavily influenced by what has become a liberal-dominated teaching base.
If kids are getting chastised and punished for wearing MAGA hats in school, what will happen to them if they reveal they voted for Trump?
How much pressure will be put on them by their parents and teachers to pull the handle for a Democrat?
Democrats are making a massive push to get big numbers to the voting booth. But every move they are making benefits voters that will surely turn out to be liberals.
It’s common sense to give these kids a chance to get out in the real world and experience life a bit before allowing them to vote.
But common sense isn’t so common these days.
