Lawmakers Want to Give Voting Rights to Teens, The Same Ones They Treat Like Toddlers
Newly-elected US Rep. Ayanna Pressley caused a stir this month when she filed an amendment to lower the legal federal voting age from 18 to 16. While Pressley’s amendment failed to pass, the action brought attention to the place of teenagers in society.

These are the same people who voted to increase the drinking age to 21, The age to purchase cigarettes to 21, The age to purchase Marijuana to 21, The age to purchase a firearm to 21 all because of maturity or brain development issues. This one makes as much sense as only using a screen, as your window in the winter.
