Voting age should be raised to at least 21

When these days we have to tell kids not to eat laundry pods

Voting age should be raised to at least 21

Once again the left-wing socialists are talking about dropping the voting age to 16 where in fact it should be raised to at least 21. It is bad enough that our children and grandchildren are being indoctrinated at a younger and younger age each year with this leftist schooling system.

The major problem dropping the age to 16 would be these kids would be so upset once they grow up and have some skin in the game. When these days we have to tell kids not to eat laundry pods, ingest deadly chemicals through vaping devices or providing abortions for poor birth control methods, etc.

Once they realize you don’t get anything for free like the left is promising or find their career path and start paying huge taxes each year, they will soon learn the lesson that socialism is great as long as the money doesn’t run out! Remember children, socialism is the people not the socialist!
