LOWERING THE VOTING AGE?!

I think most people shouldn't vote. And I'm not just talking about criminals, although I think most criminals shouldn't vote either... but I'm talking about your every-day citizens you encounter at work, the folks you see in the grocery aisles... they shouldn't vote. Why? Because most people have no clue how things work in the government. Most people are blind to the fact that politics really run everything, and that any campaign blurb you see on television is a carefully spun advertisement, designed to influence you. It's all marketing, regardless of the actual agenda.

Apparently, 10 states are in the process of reviewing the voting age to perhaps allow teenagers under 18 to vote. Great. So let's increase the pool of gullible voters, so that whoever campaigns with the most money hedges their position even better. Wonderful.
