Moonbats: Lower the Voting Age to Birth

No matter how far they push the absurdity, they will push it further still. Democrats have figured out that we are all born whiny, entitled, dependent leftists, and only become conservative as we mature. So they want to lower the voting age to 16, to enfranchise the Tide Pod crowd. If they get their way, will they be satisfied? Hardly. As predicted here years ago, moonbats now want the voting age lowered to infancy.

From Vox:

The United States should consider eradicating the voting age entirely and letting every American citizen who can successfully fill out a ballot be counted in our local, state, and national elections (and yes, this goes for felons too).

My colleague Matt Yglesias made the case for this four years ago. Since then, it’s only become more apparent that our current system is failing kids — and that they’re competent to fight for a better one.

Predictably, the main argument leans heavily on the ideological base of progressivism, Cultural Marxism — which the author unwittingly undermines through reductio ad absurdum.

American democracy got off to a rough start. At first, the vote was only extended to white land-owning men.

Due to the rough start, in our early days we had to make do with presidents like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison.

The franchise has been massively expanded. Now look what wonderful presidents we elect.

If expanding the franchise a lot is good, expanding it even more must be even better. Hey kids, how about President Miley Cyrus? No doubt that would work for the children at Vox.
