Thought of the day

On voting: The voting age ought to be at least as low as 16. That is the age when most (perhaps all?) people are allowed to work. It should be the age when all people are allowed to vote. After all, why are we making teenagers pay into SS and other programs if we aren’t going to give them an equal say?

Also, I wouldn’t support it, but I can’t say I would be heartbroken if the U.S. adopted an Australia-like system where voting was mandatory.
