Pelosi Proposes Lowering the Voting Age to 16
Because it would be an awesome civics lessons “and we would like them to register before they leave.”

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) proposed lowering the voting age to 16 years old or 17 years old.

“To achieve what we want to do for the middle class, for kids in school, for immigration reform, for all these things, we must change our politics. We must reduce the role of money in politics. We must dare to do that and so we have a dare, disclose, where is this money coming from, this dark money? Amend the Constitution to overturn Citizens United. Let’s get out there and mobilize and do it. Reform our campaign system to empower small donors and empower voters with a renewed and strengthened Voting Rights Act, removing obstacles of participation,” Pelosi said at the Make the Progress summit sponsored by the Center for American Progress.

“I’m for – and I’m interested in hearing your thoughts, and I know you’ll let me know – for lowering the voting age to high school age, whether it’s 16 or 17 or, because when kids are in school they’re so interested, they’re so engaged, and we would like them to be ready at least to register before they leave.”

    Half of these kids 16 or 17 don’t even know who the president or vice president are. I watched a program one night and kids that age or older did not know who the 1st president of the USA was, didn’t know the governor of their state was,didn’t know what the constitution was and it went on and on. As I am watching this I am thinking what the hell are they teaching them in school.

    Children are influenced heavily by their teachers. Considering most teachers are liberals; why do you think she wants to do this?

    Voting is just a illusion. Presidents are PRE selected, not elected.
