Nancy Pelosi backs movement to lower voting age to 16

March 15, 2019 by Jerry McCormick

Democrats have found a new way to facilitate their power grab.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced she “personally” supports the legislation introduced by Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) to lower the voting age to 16-years-old.

“I, myself, personally, I’m not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16,” Pelosi said on Thursday. “I think it’s really important to capture the kids when they’re in high school, when they’re interested in all of this when they’re learning about government, to be able to vote.”

“But my view is that I would welcome that but I’ve been in that position for a long time,” she added. Watch below:

Larger Liberal Voting Base

It is no secret the youth of this country tends to land on the liberal side. At that age, getting everything for free sounds pretty attractive. At the age of 16, though, how much do most kids really understand about the implications of legislation and the more extreme policies?

Democrats know the one party that will significantly benefit from lowering the voting age is their party. They already have control of the House and are on the verge of taking over the Senate.

If the voting age were lowered to 16 by the time the 2020 presidential election took place, there is little doubt they would have the numbers to not only win the White House as well as the majority in the House and Senate, but they would more than likely do so in numbers that would prevent Republicans from challenging any legislation they put forth.

The Obvious Power Grab

It is actually quite sickening that Democrats are stooping to such levels in order to get a death grip on the political power in this country.

Republicans have not moved to expand the voter base. Democrats, however, would gladly hand a ballot to every person with a foot on U.S. soil.

We have heard numerous Democrat party members voice their opinion that even illegal immigrants should be able to vote in our elections. It goes without saying in virtually every case, the more liberal candidate is the one to benefit.

Pelosi’s reason for backing this measure is that she wants to “capture” the kids as soon as they are engaged politically. While most would agree getting children engaged at a younger age is wonderful, it is a completely different story in putting the power of a vote in their hand when they are simply incapable of understanding the ramifications of all forms of legislation.

How about we let them get a little real-world experience before we allow them to decide who will be the president of this country?
