My idea of raising voting age to 21 is more popular than I thought.

  • With children wanting to stay in mommies and daddies house until 28 and 30 I think we should raise the voting age to someone who has moved out and become an independent with a job and has been paying taxes. There needs to be a test too: they should be able to name the types of governmental authorities for each city, county, state and federal government and describe how each works, this would be a pass/fail test with 90% correct answers for passing. ... I can wish

      A test?
      Most of the country can barely read let alone name one of the three main branches of our federal government.
      Like socialism - a test is a nice idea but would bring havoc. Yes , it would be great if we had a more literate society that valued learning but as you said..." I can wish"

      At the end of the day we can only enjoy the decline.

      @Texaskid1 - yes I know it unrealistic and I was in an attitude this morning... went we look at the original constitution you will see that person had to be 21 years of age (when the average life expectancy was 55), a male who was a property owner to vote … we come a long way … but was it for the good… the Progressives under Woodrow Wilson changed our laws and constitution in so many ways, this was only one, and for me none of them for the good of the country.

  • Hell no. When your 16 you don't know your ass from a hole in the ground.
    Of the course the democrats would be thrilled to lower the age to 16 since , as a rule , younger people tend to vote democrat.

    If anything the voting age in the US should be - at the very least - 21.

  • Even though I really, really would love to vote at that age, I'm going to say it's a horrible idea. Most people that young aren't interested in politics, are quite uninformed and it also doesn't help that most media has a left bias. As much as I hate to say it, raising the age might actually be the best choice (even though I voted for no change).

  • What an idiotic idea, 16 year olds are idiots for the most part, I was an idiot at that age for sure.

    Even if you think you're super mature, and soooo ready to vote, look around at your peers- do you really think they're ready for it?

    Progressives just want to lower the voting age because teenagers are, overall, super fucking impressionable.

  • Jesus. No way. I’m not so sure about 18, even, but if you can send people to get their head blown off on the other side of the world, you kind of have to let them vote. Can’t buy beer or weed til you’re 21 though, lmfao.

    Counter question: should we cut off voting rights AFTER a certain age? It’s a harsh thing to say, but at what point are you no longer a viable part of “the future?”

  • America. 🤷🏻‍♀️
    18 is good in my opinion. But as an European, I also find the fact that you guys can drive at the age of 16, yet you can't drink till you are 21, dumb.

      It's not, but I see that you like twisting words. I'm not willing to argue, if you have a logical argument for why the American system is good as it is, bring it up. If you don't, I recommend shutting up.

    • 3d

      Not twisting words at all, just pointing out flaws in your logic.

  • It should be raised to 24. Same with drinking age. Too many people aren't developed enough mentally to figure stuff out well enough to make good decisions yet. I also think they shouldn't get to join the military before 24 without a parent's approval. Again with the decision thing.

  • This is just another one of Nancy's pathetic attempts to keep her party in power. If you lower the voting age to 16, you may as well just hand the ballots to their teachers and let them fill them out for students.

    Nancy also wants illegals to be able to vote, because she's pretty sure the Dems would get those votes.

    And the dip-shit also wants convicted felons to be able to vote.
    She'd probably advocate for dogs to vote, if she thought she would get those votes.
    I think the voting age should be raised to 25. I think you should be out of college and away from the propaganda, before parroting the ideas of your brain washing teachers. These idiot teachers have the kids afraid that the world will end in 12 years, unless we vote Democrat. The world has been around for billions of years, and even the predictions of a brilliant mind like AOC isn't about to change that. Not even cow farts will destroy the Earth.

      I actually saw her say it. said it would get kids interested in politics. I love liberals like you that live in denial , That Trump is not President because you did not see everyone vote. Or that the cop shot a black guy because black guy charged him, you were not there to see it, so Cop should go to prison. The best one is that you think Socialism works, it only didn't work because you didn't over see it.

      Your problem here, bud, isn’t the 1%. I mean... you can’t win an election with just 1% of the vote. The issue is they’re getting these middle and working class people voting against their own financial interests that will BENEFIT the 1%, by aligning themselves with other causes or values that those middle and working class people hold dear, whether it’s religion, patriotism, xenophobia, and the old working class PowerBait “creating jobs.” Rule #1 in life: never trust a motherfucker who tells you he’s going to “create jobs.” I’m high enough in the management of my company that I see our numbers. My sector of the company that I run, our numbers are sky fucking high over last year. Same thing happened the year before, and the year before that. Our company profits are up millions and millions of dollars. I have twice the amount of accounts from three years ago... AND THE EXACT SAME AMOUNT OF EMPLOYEES. In fact, when employees leave, rather than replace them, the ownership wanted us to spread the work around and not hire anyone new. I’m working like a hundred hours a week, doing the MANUAL LABOR, all over New England, trying to cover the deficiency. It’s good honest work, I’m certainly not above it, but it’s wildly inefficient to have your management covering that on top of their normal responsibilities. Between Thursday and Friday, currently, I work 36-38 hours and drive 1,100-1,200 miles, in those two days alone, and I’m working 6 and sometimes even 7 days a week, for relatively piss money, and and my crew makes even less. The company thrives on hiring desperate people who can’t afford to quit or be fired, they toe the absolute lines of legality on purpose, and I’ve literally been told by our owner to view our employees “as light bulbs, to be burnt out, thrown away, and replaced.” That’s fucking DISGUSTING. And these asshole bought himself a new yacht this past year, while reaping crazy profits and creating ZERO jobs. You gotta be dumb to fall for “trickle-down” econ🙄
