Freshman Rep Pressley Introduces Legislation Lowering Federal Voting Age To 16
WayneDupree.com - link

Freshman Rep. Ayanna Pressley offered an amendment to legislation which would have dropped the voting age down to 16 years old.

“The measure failed Thursday, garnering just 126 votes in the House, and further discussion was “postponed” — meaning there is still potential for further consideration on the proposal.” The most frightening takeaway from this article is that 126 members of the House (approximately 29%) voted FOR this hot mess!

Wisdom and maturity cannot be used in the same sentence with 16 years old.

IMHO, the voting age needs to be raised to at least 25.

Or at the least 21...if you're too immature to drink you're too immature to make political decisions.

It should be simple: In order to vote for a particular office, you should be qualified to hold that particular office.

I.e., for President 35 YO and a natural-born citizen.

I like that. Of course, democrats would always lose in a a landslide in that case.

I like your idea better. :thumbsup: And along with that, no campaign money whatsoever from outside the district/area of the office.

I'll take this one step further -- no lobbying of members of the House or the Senate unless you either live in their district/state or (in the case of corporations) have a nexus in the district/state. Unless these criteria are met they don't represent you. . .

I'm not surprised to see the democrats propose another insane idea in their quest for voters. With Trump cutting off their illegal immigrant votes they had to find more voters somewhere...

Neither can "Ayanna Pressley".

Lowering the federal voting age would require a Constitutional Amendment. This is just further proof that Democrats are all about power. The fact that some local governments do allow 16 year-olds and non-citizens is bad enough.

This. SOOOO much this. People’s brains are not fully functional (well, most people) until they are 25.

The writer says that people should not be allowed to vote until they have gone out and worked. Well that would eliminate any chance of another leftist/progtard/demonrat from ever being elected again. Which is by that will never happen.

Ayanna Pressley is Massachusetts version of AOC. She won the primary against long serving leftist Mike Capuano.

Some one needs to ask the 126 Representatives who voted for this the following:

If 16 is mature enough to vote in an election does it mean a 16 year old is mature enough to know right from wrong and now can be tried as an adult?

If you can't buy a handgun then you shouldn't be allowed to vote. One magazine may harm some people but a marxist idiot child voting can cause irreparable harm to the nation.

:exactly:

Yes, the voting age needs to be raised to 21 for sure. Today's kids for the most part (of course there are some exceptions) are not nearly as mature for their age as back in the day and are very gullible.

This shows that the low life democraps prefer gullible low IQ types for their base/voters as they do convicted felons, illegal immigrants, deviant perverts and lazy worthless bums.

I am sickened by the recent push here in my state and everywhere else by both parties to restore the voting privileges to convicted felons who have been proven to not make sound responsible decisions.

Our forefathers had banned them from voting for a good reason!

I also say that only those who have worked and paid taxes should have the right to vote.
No more gibsmedats for anyone.

Mixed opinions of felons. Problem is, too many things are felonies that really shouldn't be. Just ask Martha Stewart or Paul Manafort.

In Florida, A felon can apply for "restoration of civil rights" including voting ten years AFTER they're completely done with everything; Done with probation/parole, paid all the fines, restitution, whatever, get three letters of recommendation, you can apply for it. I'm okay with that. In fact, I once wrote a letter of recommendation for an employee.

"only those who have worked and paid taxes should have the right to vote." DEFINITELY. I go even further: Divide the annual federal budget by the number of potentially eligible voters to determine everyone's "fair share". If you pay at least that much in federal taxes every year, you get to vote.

Its telling that the voting blocks most desired by the Democrats are serious criminals, uninformed children, and non-citizens.
