[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Nancy Pelosi is up to her old tricks again. Like most Democrats, she attempts to find ways to manipulate the system in order to get more voters who she believes will likely vote Democrat. It doesn’t matter to elitists like Pelosi whether the voter is an informed voter. She simply wants them to vote the way they are told, based upon ideas and accusations hurled regarding the Republican party in order to gin up anger, strife, animosity and Democrat votes.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Democrats continue to perpetuate the lie that requiring an ID to vote disenfranchises black voters and is simply an attempt by the Republican party to deny black people the right to vote. This is just an effort to increase voter fraud and gin up racial animosity. Now, Pelosi has another idea to attempt to increase Democrat voters.
Nancy Pelosi is proposing that the legal voting age be lowered to 16 or 17 years old.
Generation Progress is a project of the radical, far-left Marxist group Center for American Progress, which is funded by George Soros. They describe themselves as “Working with and for young people for progressive change.”
During a speech to the group, Pelosi pushed the idea of 16-year old voters, and her rationale was beyond laughable. (emphasis mine)
To achieve what we want to do for the middle class, for kids in school, for immigration reform, for all these things, we must change our politics. We must reduce the role of money in politics. We must dare to do that and so we have a dare, disclose, where is this money coming from, this dark money? Amend the Constitution to overturn Citizens United. Let’s get out there and mobilize and do it. Reform our campaign system to empower small donors and empower voters with a renewed and strengthened Voting Rights Act, removing obstacles of participation,” Pelosi said at the Make the Progress summit sponsored by the Center for American Progress.
“I’m for – and I’m interested in hearing your thoughts, and I know you’ll let me know – for lowering the voting age to high school age, whether it’s 16 or 17 or, because when kids are in school they’re so interested, they’re so engaged, and we would like them to be ready at least to register before they leave.”
Keep in mind that in California, the state which Nancy Pelosi represents, the Senate recently approved a bill that would raise the legal smoking age from 18 to 21. So, California elected officials don’t think someone old enough to die for their country should smoke, but Pelosi believes someone who barely has their driver’s license should be given voting rights?
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]Pelosi’s claim that when kids are in school they are incredibly interested [in politics] and engaged could also be easily disputed.
This is the generation of reality TV, SnapChat, and Instagram. This is the generation that gets their news from a comedian, The Daily Show on Comedy Central, rather than a legitimate news station. This is the same generation who could easily identify Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, or Channing Tatum while having no idea who their current elected officials. This is the same generation targeted by Obama with “cool factor” propaganda in order to garner their support while feeding them lies to win them over to his radical agenda.
Pelosi’s desire to lower the voting age is due to one reason and one reason only. She wants more Democrat votes.
The left indoctrinates students at an early stage in their educational process. With Common Core, students are being taught anti-American, anti-capitalism lessons. Students have even been taken to questionable field trips to mosques and, within Pelosi’s own state, were taken on a field trip and forced to witness a gay wedding. These are but a few examples of the far-left, progressive indoctrination of our youth by the Left as they work to get them to view capitalism as bad and socialism/Marxism as good.
That is why Pelosi wants to lower the voting age.
In California, the legal gambling age ranges from 18 to 21. So, those below the age of 18, and even below 21 in some areas, should not be trusted to gamble with their own money, but they should, despite being uninformed voters, be trusted making decisions that will impact the pocketbook of others?
That’s Democrat logic for you.
