    I don't think we should let virgins vote. So long as you have been circumcised (yes you need to have a wiener) and have had sex I think you should be able to vote

    I might even be okay with 21, but if and only if we restrict the military to 21 or older.

    The same reasoning applies: if people need to “grow” — and I do think research shows that the brain is not developed until around 21 — then those same people cannot make rational decisions about putting their life on the line for “policies” they only partially “understand.”

    People who can't afford rent/mortgage ... you mean homeless people ... or are you just talking about people who still live with Mummy/Daddy?

They aren't going to be researching topics and how it affects millions of people domestically and billions internationally. Yet, Pelosi thinks they should be able to vote. If anything, the voting age should be increased to 21. I get it, though. If I were Nancy, I would do everything in my power to get as many votes. That's what both parties are overly concerned about.. who gets the votes. Sad.
    well, kids are typically VERY liberal, they don't pay for anything (most). They don't understand the world, they just want to help everyone. So yes, Dems would love the voting age to drop.

    18 is a good age. If you can die in the military over politicians decisions, you should be able to vote, drink alcohol, smoke doobies, and everything else.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    age has minimal to do with understanding policies. Hell most people I know as adults are clueless when it comes to politics. I still go back to having a very, very simple test in the voting booth. You pass, you get to vote. You fail, you don't get to vote, and just thank everyone else who gives a **** on the way out.

    at the current rate, a very small percentage will be able to vote with his suggestion. The cost of living versus wages is getting out of control in a hurry.

    by that reasoning, most elder adults have started to lose mental ability. Should we also then cut off an age for voting, say, 68 years old? You can only vote between ages 21-68. Will that make both sides happy? It would eliminate a ton of baby boomers who vote republican without thought, and eliminate a bunch of college kids who vote democrat without thought.

    Who doesn't pay rent or a mortgage other than children and homeless people?

    I'll go along with this if you start with the Supreme Court having mandatory retirement at the same age.

    at the current rate, plenty won't be able to afford it. Housing will change over time if costs aren't roped in.
