Talking I don't know what to call this thread...

Well, I dont think that kids should be able to vote. The reason behind this is that most kids will just vote for who ever their parents are voting for. A lot of kids at this age don't think for themselves; they just want their parents' candidate to win. Anyone else agree with me?

I dunno. Maybe they need to take a test that proves that they aren't just voting for what other people want. If I did vote, then it wouldn't just be because my parents were voting for that person, and I might even vote for a different person.
Try to make sure that fights don't start in this thread, since I think it was politics that started a huge fight awhile ago.

LS Trendom; I dont mean to start a fight! I just kinda wanted to know other peoples' opinions.

I used to vote for who my parent would (in kid's voting, basically fake voting to make kids feel important) but now I don't. I now (finally!) have a mind of my own.

Hmm. I have long discussions with my parents a lot, which are usually interesting...but honestly, I don't know if I'd even want to vote.

if I could vote I wouldn't just copy my parents votes though still me and my parents votes would probably be the same.

But kids don't really think as highly as adults, but that doesn't mean all adults are smart enough and wise enough to vote either.

I know---I mean, kids aren't really influenced by politics and stuff so they could even be really good candidates to vote...
