As the 2020 presidential election gets closer and closer, Democrats are doing all they possibly can to give themselves every possible advantage.
Their latest ploy involves pushing for the voting age to be lowered from 18 to 16, reports The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The Push to Lower the Voting Age
The push to lower the voting age is surging amongst the Democrat Party. According to the left, 16-year-olds have gained enough maturity to determine who will be elected into office. However, in the same breath, Democrats don’t believe that 16-year-olds are mature enough to purchase firearms.
At the end of the day, the underlying motive here is very clear to anyone who has been paying attention. Democrats believe that lowering the voting age will ultimately expand their voting bloc and give them an edge over Republicans. This has absolutely nothing to do with the genuinely believing that 16-year-olds are knowledgeable and informed enough to vote.
Changing the Rules of the Game
Changing the rules of the game is something which Democrats frequently strive to do when they believe it will benefit them. After all, Democrats are also pushing to bar President Trump’s name from appearing on certain state’s ballots unless he releases five years of tax returns. The left will do anything to advance themselves politically no matter how sneaky, underhanded or nefarious it may be.
The majority of 16-year-olds are not informed or mature enough to vote. This is not an attack on people in that age range and there are certainly a minority of 16-year-olds who are informed and capable enough to vote and make decisions. However, when Democrats call for lowering the voting age, their target audience is the 16-year-olds who have been indoctrinated with liberalism their whole lives whether through media, the school system or both.
