Video evidence why teenagers should not vote.

Post by edmskeptic »

If you cannot process the world around you rationally, you should not have the right to vote.

Not sure how this displays the reason why they should not vote.

If you're too young to realize you are being instructed to believe and do something completely unreasonable, then you are too young to vote.
In fact that's how the Nazi party was democratically elected.

Until a person's had enough life experience to reliably spot a liar, voting should be illegal.
I think that voting age should be 40.
It should also end when people lose their driver's license due to óld age

Actually, your premise has some substance. I often think, not totally seriously, that the nutcases who spout conspiracies and rely on YouTube for their medical and public health comments should have their right to vote curtailed. They clearly cannot process the world around them rationally.

Any argument that teenagers shouldn't be able vote can be applied to adults with the exception of time. I've been supporting myself and paying taxes since I was 16. Why shouldn't I have been able to vote then in the system I was participating in?

Unless there's some sort of app that lets you vote through Snapchat or something like that, I don't even think this generation of lobotomized electronic device zombies even knows how to vote.

I'd say you are the exception to your age group.

Of course we should lower the voting age to 16. Most posters on this site are much older and put their lack of basic intelligence on display every day. Teenagers are at least as intelligent as most of the older posters on this site.

They also have a vested interest in the direction we go economically, environmentally and politically. The uninformed and disinterested teenagers would be unlikely to vote anyway - much like their older counterparts.
Conservatives hate that the research shows them to be less intelligent than their left-leaning counterparts
but more than a couple here certainly have no problem in providing us with plenty of evidence for it.

The nazi party never won a majority. They just took over.
