Most young people are idealistic. They don't understand the real world and the sacrifices you have to make. They don't understand how hard Uncle Sam hits us in the pocket book not to mention all the other taxes we pay for everything else. Of course they'll go with anything that sounds good like free stuff...I wouldn't expect otherwise. So they are a built-in voting block for the Democrat Party because of their ideology which is one of naivety not responsibility. Now what's even worse, is that some of the people in the Democratic Party on the campaign trail are pushing to lower the voting age to 16.
This alone would guarantee our country would never have a balance of power. Add to this that Democrats are trying to get rid of the Electoral College, and Republicans might as well hang it up and watch the Democrat Party run our country into extinction. It's sad.
