WASHINGTON: There used to be an age when “Children should be seen and not heard.” Use to work pretty well. In fact, for those who care, the book of Proverbs is loaded with wisdom regarding children and their lack of wisdom.
Now unwise youth go to Congress. They are now seen, heard and demanding to spend trillions of your dollars. And, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s is out there running the Democrats “Children’s hour.”
“Congress is too old, they don’t have a stake in the game.” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortz
The single good thing about Alexandria Occasion Cortez so far has been she really is good for a laugh. Or at least she has been for the most part with her doofus, wide-eyed wonderment and juvenile New Green Deal. Which is not new, and not green. And would destroy America.
However, Democrats are falling in line behind her as she stomps her foot saying: “I’m the boss. I’m the boss.”
Every word uttered is from a juvenile mind trying to reach other juvenile minds.
It is easy to disparage the AOC nonsense.
But don’t count her out.
Only a handful of years ago were someone to suggest that a man could go to college on a scholarship to play girls softball just because he wanted to be a girl, the sponsor of the suggestion probably would have been committed to the funny factory/farm. So, don’t be surprised at anything she says that is accepted.
This child, Cortez, actually does have people considering the New Green Deal. They take her seriously.
She is serious.
Now she has an ally in Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) who is spearheading a cause to allow 16-year-olds to vote. Following the time-worn slogan of “old enough to fight, old enough to vote” that was a promo for selling the idea of 18-year-olds voting, the promo for sweet 16 suffrage is “old enough to drive, old enough to vote.”
Many people ask the same question Tucker Carlson asks: “Why not 13-year-olds?” After all, they can drive.
Democrat machine creating new voters
Unfortunately, again, she sees voting children akin to illegal aliens crossing the border. They are future Democrat voters. Ocasio is trying to rally the children across the land to have their voices not only heard but their teenage rights are written into law.
It shows how little the Founders knew when they supplied and ratified the Constitution with its provisions for age restrictions on running for Congress and The Presidency: ages of 25 for House members, 30 for the Senate, and 35 for the Presidency. This was in a day when the average life expectancy was 38. (The America Of 1787, Big Families Are The Norm And Life Expectancy Is 38)
In Lord of the Flies, the children were in charge. The results were a disaster. However, the children in Lord of the Flies were educate. Millennials and their utopians town-criers such as Cortez, lack real education or life experience.
So, when is too young, too young to vote?
Perhaps there is a bright side. Since a certain number of babies are to be killed at birth by Democrat-promoted abortion laws, why not allow the state to register all babies immediately delivered, to vote when they can walk. There is no way to know for which party they will vote.
But at least the children coming into office, elected by their peers, will have an incentive to not kill potential voters of the next two or three years. And they more than likely will vote Democrat. Your life or your vote. That ’s pro-choice.
If the AOC voters can’t be successfully fed intelligent thought, perhaps they can be fed the mush and stupidity they love. Then perhaps, through pure accident, these children will grow up and see things, such as, the Green Deal for what it is: a brown pile.
