House Democrats and Andrew Yang have pushed for a voting age of 16. That doesn’t go far enough.
It doesn’t? Most adults don’t have the smarts to vote now, let alone ill-informed adolescents.
Around the world, almost every country bars people under 18 from voting. The reasons vary — they won’t be informed enough, they don’t pay taxes yet, they can’t serve in the military yet, they tend too liberal, they tend too rebellious — but the rule persists, even in the face of a generation of passionate, smart, and informed teenage activists, and even as it becomes obvious that our current political system is failing our children.
This must have been written by a teenager.
There are a host of good reasons to give children the vote.
No. There are not. The one person one vote rule is broken anyway. How else do you explain the 2016 election?
