Lower the Voting Age to 16?

Generally I try to avoid discussing any politics on Sunday. I try to follow the example of Judas the Maccabee who, although he was fighting for his nation’s life, still wouldn’t fight on the Sabbath except in self-defense.

I’ll make this brief. I mention it because it just might be one of those things they put over on us while we’re looking the other way and then, when it’s too late, we wonder how they did it.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (Far Left-California) says she wants to see the voting age lowered to 16 (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6810889/Pelosi-wants-voting-age-lowered-16-capture-kids-high-school.html). She tried to insert the measure into an “anti-corruption bill”–the hypocrisy could actually suffocate you–but couldn’t quite manage it.

In one of those rare moments when a Democrat accidentally says something that is true, Pelosi explained why she wants to do this:

“It’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school.”

“Capture”? Did she say “capture”? Well, public education has already done that!

There is more that needs to be said about this republic-killing proposal, but I’ll save it for tomorrow.
