Okay, where is your Constitutional
evidence, considering you said it is un-Constitutional?
While certainly, the age to work is younger than 18, those under 18 can serve in the Military, age 17, with parental consent, but they are not legally
supposed to smoke, even though that happens as well.
No, I am not saying I disagree, nor am I saying I agree either.
But claiming something is un-Constitutional without backing it up?
Bring something more than no taxation, without representation
to the table.
Besides that, just how many people under the age of 18 do you think care?
Do you honestly think they would care they can vote?
Because it takes something like MTV just to get them out of their apathy and angst.
Would they take it seriously as a responsibility or would it stay the same?
When it comes to voting so many do not see that their vote counts.
I am neither saying it does or does not count but the perceptions of some are that it counts, some believe it does not count, some believe the
elections are rigged, bought and paid for, and or wholly out of our hands.
An example would be voting verses the Electoral College
Do people under 18 care that much or is that in a minority of voices?
I know when I was under 18 those around me could not care less about politics.
I cared but none under 18 did as well as many adults I knew did not care.
Just some food for thought because you have a good idea.
I am just looking for some facts to back up your argument as well as evidence.
