So letting 16-year-olds vote is a bad thing because teens are not smart enough to handle the responsibility?
Well, a lot of mature Americans voted for the political party that shut down the government, has wasted millions of dollars on frivolous lawsuits against the federal government, refused to pass needed legislation and sabotaged the president at every turn.
The party that was punished had policies that led to 10 million uninsured people now having healthcare, millions of new jobs created and college loans that are much more affordable for our kids.
Obviously, older voters are not always the sharpest tools in the shed.
Let teens vote and we might just see progress.
