It seems like every day these new, young, members of Congress find a new way to prove that they are clueless.

And Rep. Ayanna Pressley has outdone them all with her latest stunt, an attempt to lower the federal voting age to 16.

“I am honored & excited to be introducing my very 1st amendment on the House floor, an amendment to #HR1, the #ForthePeopleAct. My amendment will lower the voting age from 18 to 16, allowing our youth to have a seat at the table of democracy. #16toVote,” she said.

“#DidYouKnow In 2018, nearly 2 million young people between the ages of 16 & 17 were employed, contributing to the labor force and to their local economy through paying taxes. #16toVote,” she said.

“49 yrs ago, Senator Ted Kennedy argued before his colleagues in favor of lowering the voting age as an effort to “bring our youth into full and lasting participation in our institutions of democratic government.” #16toVote #ForThePeople,” Pressley said.

Do Democrats want a one party nation?

“Since the days of abolitionists, suffragists, & civil rights activists, young people have been pushing the wheels of progress forward. Thank you to my sister in service @RepGraceMeng for leading the charge on this issue | #16toVote #ForThePeople,” she said.

The idea is ridiculous but it makes sense from the stance of the Democrat Party for one main reason.

The younger someone is, the more likely they are to believe in the idea of getting free stuff for doing nothing.

They are also more likely to believe that rich people are evil and are stopping them from achieving their dreams.

The reason Democrats want floods of immigrants and to lower the voting age is not for any type of humanitarian reason.

And it is not because they want young people involved in politics. It is because they want to create a one party nation.

Thankfully wiser people prevailed, even with the majority of Democrats voting for the measure.
