Oregon Legislators Push To
Lower Voting Age To 16

Gateway Pundit, by Brock Simmons

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/20/2019 12:46:38 PM

In the never ending race to the bottom, Oregon state senator Shemia Fagan is introducing legislation that would lower the voting age in the state to 16. Citing abortion and stripping away 2nd Amendment rights, Fagan introduced the legislation on Monday, at the behest of doorbelling-for-democrats operation known as the Bus Project.Oregon Public Broadcasting reports: “It’s time to lower the voting age in Oregon and to give our young people a chance to participate in the ballot, about their decisions that affect their homes, their clean air, their future, their schools and as we’ve seen, their very lives,” Fagan said.

The military tends to like very young recruits. Highly impressionable and easy to manipulate/mold into a "fighting machine". A 16 year old is much more impressionable & easily manipulated into a "liberal voting block". Disgusting.

I have a different plan. Raise the voting age to 50. You can´t vote if you are on welfare. No single women. No college professors. And you cant vote if you live within 50 miles of Portland, Salem, or Eugene. You can´t vote if you came from California.

Within 3 years, the state would be functioning normally.

Why not lower it to 2? That seems to be the average intellectual age of the average Oregonian these days.

As if the number of ignoramuses casting ballots isn´t already alarmingly huge, they want to add ignorant 16 and 17 years olds with no real life experiences to the voter pool. No thanks.

You DO NOT have a ´right´ to vote. You do have a RESPONSIBILITY to vote wisely, intelligently and dispassionately.

Overwhelming evidence proves that voters are incapable of voting responsibly, so I say let´s do away with voting and adopt a jury system instead. Pull a name out a hat and that person gets drafted for a fixed duration, never to return to public service afterwards.

Chances are we´d get a better group of representatives than we have now.

First, with a few exceptions, Oregon has traditionally been filled with leftist loonies.

Second, #3 is on to something but I suggest the simpler Roman method: only properly owners and those who have honorably served in the military can vote.

I have a much better idea, they should raise the voting age to 21.

After all, they can´t buy liquor, cigarettes and in many cases a firearm, until 21.
Heck, they want to be on their parents´ health insurance until 26, and your frontal cortex doesn´t fully mature until about 25.

Just imagine folks, your 16 year old would be voting to raise your property taxes, and all sorts of things that sound free to them, at their tender age.

The vast majority of 16 years olds are in High School where they are under the influence of very liberal Union school teachers that are the biggest identity based leftist and liberal Democrat constitutency group in the country.

Those leftist liberal Democrat politicians would not be supporting lowering the voting age for under age minors, who because of their age cannot even sign legal contracts, if they ever thought that more than a very small percentage of them would vote for conservatives or Republicans. Look for the Democrats to start advocating this issue for all over the country and in Congress.

Amendment 26 - Voting Age Set to 18 Years
1. The right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of age.
2. The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Just a reminder: Geographically, most of Oregon is conservative; but the whole state is run by a few populated counties. Oregon´s (and Washington´s) liberalism began when expatriates from California began fleeing northward, bringing their politics with them. What we need here is a state version of the Electoral College.

I feel sorry for a lot of these kids. Many of their parents are out to lunch. Their schools are pathetic at preparing them for real life. The culture is in the sewer. The media is a travesty for informing anyone. They are really on their own at a very confusing time in their lives. Now the slobs that gravitate to government smell tax revenue in widespread pot consumption. THAT is going to set back many of them when trying to make a life for themselves. Good luck kids. Your ancestors had it better fighting off Indian raiding parties and wolves.

BTW as my Grandmother used to say the government parasites that dreamed up this idea ought to be horsewhipped.

The answer was revealed on Twitter hours later, as Kid Rock posted a picture with the president. “Another great day on the links!” he wrote. “Thank you to POTUS for having me and to EVERYONE at Trump International for being so wonderful.

Well, it’s finally here. Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report on the Russia investigation late Friday afternoon to Attorney General William Barr and the liberal media began to conflagrate. During the early evening buzz on MSNBC’s MTP Daily, host Chuck Todd seemed to express concern over the fact that Mueller allowed President Trump and his legal team to answer written questions, instead of testifying before a grand jury. Speaking with California Congressman Eric “nuke the gun owners” Swalwell (D) on the phone, Todd pressed him on Trump’s form of testimony: This report was concluded without interviewing the President of

Naturally, Fox News was the only outlet to cover the story in detail, placing it early in the broadcast of “Special Report.” “At a ceremony in the East Room this afternoon, President Trump took a step he hopes will ensure all voices

Reid said that given Attorney General William Barr wasn’t recused, unlike his predecessor Jeff Sessions, there could be the “seeds of a cover-up” in place. “That’s the challenge.

Senator Roy Blunt’s vote against President Donald Trump’s border emergency declaration has been reaping consequences in his home state. The Missouri Republican, one of 12 who sided with Democrats to block Trump’s use of emergency powers, has come under fire by voters who feel he betrayed them and was recently disinvited from the local Christian County GOP event next month, The Kansas City Star reported. After the local party committee’s events chair initially expressed anger at Blunt’s vote and rescinded his invitation to attend the event in Ozark, the offer was extended again, according to KOLR10 News.

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

Democrat 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke warned from the campaign trail in South Carolina Friday night there may not be another year of America if the Mueller report is not made public. “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are

Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

The San Antonio City Council banned Chick-fil-A from San Antonio International Airport over “anti-LGBTQ behavior” as part of a new concession plan for the airport. District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño motioned to approve the Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement with Paradies Lagardère for the airport Thursday on condition Chick-fil-A be excluded from the agreement. Treviño asserted Chick-fil-A has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior” and that such a business had no place in the city’s airport. (Snip) the restaurant would have liked to have had a dialogue with it prior to the decision.

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

The Washington National Cathedral disputed President Trump´s claim that he had to "approve" the funeral of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). "Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials," a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday. "No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official," he added.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

Hours after New Zealand announced prohibitions against semiautomatic rifles and shotguns, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) tweeted the U.S. needs to follow the gun ban example. Feinstein tweeted: “In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.” She attached a statement to her tweet wherein she noted: Here at home in America, since the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School, we’ve suffered through at least 227 school shootings that killed 143 and left

MSNBC’s top Russiagate conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow burst into tears on Friday — after the past two years of her reporting was revealed to be nonsense.On Friday, it was revealed that there would be no more indictments from Robert Mueller’s office, sealed or otherwise, which completely contradicts the tall tales that she has been selling her viewers. Barely holding it together, Maddow emotionally explained that she is on a fishing trip in Tennessee and came into a studio — despite having had the day off. (Videos/Tweets) Clinging to absolutely anything to avoid apologizing for her bogus reporting, Maddow claimed that

A group of black seminarians is seeking amends for the Princeton Theological Seminary’s founders’ and early faculty’s ties to slavery. The Association of Black Seminarians posted a petition online earlier this month as a response to a report that detailed the seminary’s history with slavery, which was released last year. So far, the group has collected more than 400 signatures on the petition, which asks for $5.3 million annually to fund tuition grants for black students and establish a Black Church Studies program.(Snip) “Princeton Theological Seminary is uniquely positioned to lead the theological academy in addressing historic, structural, educational

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” House Intelligence Committee and Judiciary Committee member Eric Swalwell (D-CA) stated that he doesn’t think he or the majority of his colleagues will accept a report “unless its veracity is testified to by Bob Mueller.”Swalwell began by saying, “[T]he American people will see every word, every comma, every period of this report. The president is outnumbered now in a way that he was not before.” He added, “Second, I don’t think I, and most of my colleagues, will accept a report unless its veracity is testified to by Bob Mueller.
