Democrat Congresswoman Pushes Legislation to ‘Lower Voting Age to 16’
Yikes. These people know they can’t win free and fair elections without the popular vote because they know damn well that the electoral college won’t help them when the odds are stacked against their favor.
I completely disagree with this resolution she is proposing because I simply know who I was and what I was doing at age 16. And it wasn’t politics. It certainly had nothing to do with any interest in our country. Letting 16 year olds vote is a step in the wrong direction. They would vote based on identity politics alone.
It’s simple, because the majority is in the younger ages. Democrats see this. Democrats are both scared of this and excited all the same, because they know as history moves along, the majority will eventually rise to vox populi status and take control. We can’t have radical left-wingers leading our country. The first thing they will do is introduce laws to make it harder for conservatives to win elections, citing fascism, and other foolish reasons.
Daily Caller reported that “Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley on Tuesday evening introduced legislation to lower the federal voting age from 18 to 16.
Pressley cited teen activists pushing for gun control as a reason for giving 16-year-olds the right to vote, which the congresswoman compared to having a driver’s license.
“Young people are at the forefront of some of our most existential crises,” Pressley added. “The time has come. Our young people deserve to have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.”
Two other Democratic congresswomen, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib and New York Rep. Grace Meng, offered their support for Pressley’s legislation.
“I’m committed to making sure we empower young people to build our future together. Giving them the power to vote will help build a more equitable and just future,” Meng said in a statement posted to Twitter on Tuesday.
