In today's world where we engage in inter-generational pilfering I would support this idea.
At 16 many kids are well embarked on a working life spent paying for all this debt they have been handed by previous generations.

Most Trump supporters think 12 year olds can marry so they should support it. The liberals should support it. The problem is that neither side will support it if the other side suggests it. Those of us that are normal, think it's a dumb idea

I think its a good idea.
I would never vote as I didn't know where I was living, being nomadic for a few decades.
In general, I cant be bothered listening to most of these boring old farts in any country.
I surely will miss Trump for the comedy value.

I lean more towards to the negative

In my opinion all your years before 18 should be about you, not focusing and politics and religion but instead having a life for yourself while its still kinda free.

Here is an article illustrating the sort of FAKE News that LIE-berals are wildly spreading- with no thought of consequences! With some comments of my own in brackets):

False accuser Shaun Lying King's record of harm

By Michelle Malkin.

This week, “journalist, activist and humanitarian” Shaun King will give a keynote speech at the annual Innocence Network conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The theme of the event, whose attendees work to prevent and undo wrongful convictions, is “The Presumption of Innocence.”

I’ve covered many flabbergasting things over the course of 25 years as a columnist, author, blogger and documentary host, but this one takes the cake.

It was just three months ago that King recklessly exploited the shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes in Houston, Texas, to stoke racial fear and hatred. The little girl and her family, who are black, got caught in crossfire at a Walmart parking lot.

The Black Lives Matter activist and columnist for the Intercept immediately pounced — using his huge Twitter platform, followed by 1.1 million people, to cast the incident as a racial hate crime. King splashed a photo of Robert Cantrell, a white man who had been arrested for robbery the same day as the Barnes shooting, all over social media.

“We’ve had 20 people call or email us and say he is a racist, violent a–hole and always has been. Just tell me everything you know,” Social Justice Detective King incited on Twitter. Cantrell’s family members faced vitriol and death threats online as a result of the irresponsible gossip-mongering.

After two black men were arrested for the murder, King sputtered to save his reputation — first by claiming credit for passing on a tip that led to the arrests - which he kept quiet about while stoking anti-white hatred, and then by doubling down with a fake-but-accurate defense.

(Oopsie- the Black Lives Matter reverse BIGOT JUMPED TO THE CONCLUSION it was a white shooter? And then had to cover his ass and quietly admit that it was two black guys who did the murder?????????)

“We live in a time where somebody could do something like this based purely on hate or race,” he smugly argued. “And that it turned out to not be the case I don’t think changes the devastating conclusion that people had thought something like that was possible.”

(Gosh - the guy who “defends” the presumption of innocence sounds like he is making up a lynch mob for all white people! No wonder Black Lives DON’T MATTER!! LIES are not a good argument for the defense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

There’s nothing “humanitarian” or exemplary about such an attitude. This is race-hustling cynicism at its worst. It’s par for the twisted course for King, who is a serial apologist for treating people as guilty until proven innocent and for threatening those who call him out (including critics within the progressive left who have alleged he has ripped off the movement).

In May 2018, the Lying King led the witch-hunt against innocent white Texas state trooper Daniel Hubbard by spreading the false claims of a black woman who lied about Hubbard raping her during a traffic stop. That admitted liar, Sherita Dixon-Cole, escaped prosecution based on a technicality. King’s reward? Moving up from the New York Daily News to a coveted position at the Harvard-affiliated Fair Punishment Project, which in part conducts research to prevent more wrongful convictions.

In 2014, King promoted the anti-cop “hands up, don’t shoot” lie debunked by none other than the Obama Justice Department, yet he still doesn’t care about the truth. “I’m not going to parse evidence or make some complex technical argument that Michael Brown did or didn’t have his hands up,” he defiantly retorted. “To me, it doesn’t matter if he did or he didn’t. It never has.”

(That Brown was a WANTED FELON and got shot for repeatedly beating on cops and successfully resisting previous arrest attempts would be interesting information for the general public!! Honest citizens have little symparthy for wanted FELONS!!!!!!!!!!!)

As former New York City Police detective Sergeant John Paolucci, who is on the board of Uncuff the Innocent, which advocates for wrongfully convicted police officers, told me: “When the agenda is to instill in people a fear of the police, one creates an environment conducive to more deadly confrontations. … Having worked the most high-profile police involved cases in the media, I’m well aware that the whole truth is never reported in these investigations and the probative value of evidence that favours the police is diminished or omitted entirely when it hits the news.”

(Brown is the hulking thug who was featured on store security cameras taking food off shelves and then threatening the elderly Asian clerk when asked for payment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

In 2015, King gloried in the wrongful rape convictions of former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw, whose flawed case and forensic errors led six internationally renowned scientists to call for a retrial. He has failed to follow up because, of course, the truth doesn’t fit his narrative.

(The number of questions raised at the Holtzclaw trial ought to raise eybrows! For instance- GPS and car computer black box information indicate he was on a certain street but the electronic evidence indicates HE DID NOT STOP THE POLICE CRUISER any where in the area - he just rolled through at 30 mph and thus would not have been able to attack a black woman who got let off some serious charges of her own in exchange for her “helpful” testimony against Holtzclaw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(The use of jail house “snitches” who get much easier terms for their own crimes is becoming a disgrace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The “journalist” also maintained the same obstinate stance after his disgraceful sliming of football star Peyton Manning in 2016, when he attempted to ride the #MeToo publicity wave by recycling — and woefully misinterpreting — a 13-year-old court filing regarding a settlement with a female trainer who had claimed she was sexually harassed, and then changed her story seven years later. Instead of admitting error, he played victim.

It’s disturbing enough that King is being honoured at the Innocence Conference, where many lawyers, activists, scientists and exonerees I admire will attend. Even worse, King heads up a publication called “The North Star,” which purports to “speak truth to power” and is aimed at young people of colour.

Wrongfully convicted Marine Tim Wright and his wife, Danielle, wonder: “How can an individual with a reputation of making countless false accusations against white men, racially profiling whites and stirring up racial discourse in America be trusted with the hearts and minds of future generations of minority children?”

Or anyone, for that matter? This malicious individual who has repeatedly profited from undermining the presumption of innocence has no place pretending to defend it. That’s speaking truth to power.

(Yes- there is money and prestige in being an iconoclast! But there seems to be no penalty for telling LIE-beral LIES in our society!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
