People on the left lost their minds when Vivek Ramaswamy recently suggested raising the voting age to 25, but they think nothing of allowing children to vote.
Their reasons for trying to do this are so transparent. They have radicalized a significant portion of the youth population through schools and they know that these young people will vote the way they want them to, against anything even slightly conservative.

Teens, Democrats continue push to lower voting age to 16
The Democrat-led movement to lower the legal voting age to 16 — or in some cases even younger — is gaining momentum as teenagers and other activists seek to score local victories while winning the support of some voices in the media.

Democrats like that idea because 16-year-olds don’t know anything and are easy to bribe. Sane people oppose lowering the voting age for exactly the same reason.

Democrats want to lower the voting age to 16.
So to recap:
18 to join the army.
21 to buy cigarettes.
21 to buy alcohol.
But 16 to decide the fate of the entire country for 4 years.

The voting age shouldn’t be changed to 16 – it should be changed to 30

If 16 year-olds were allowed to vote, every public school in America would instantly become a target for ballot harvesting by activist teachers who belong to unions that are in bed with the Democrat party.
