Note from Dan: Recall back in the 80s, when states began to undo the 18-year-old drinking age? College students, especially, simply cannot be trusted with the country’s future, the argument holds. Even though it’s their future. (If a kid goes immediately from high school into a full-time job changing tires at a repair shop where RWer talk radio plays all day every day, we may be able to cut an exception pr two). Those of you who don’t believe any such moves are in the offing would be well-reminded that you didn’t believe states would begin enacting faux poll taxes and other barriers to discourage voting among minorities and others likely to vote for Democratic candidates. Here’s the post, from regular Pistol Pete, on the Wednesday OPEN thread.
“College students (many of which are brainwashed by liberal profs) that can’t tell you how many senators we have or recognize a picture of Joe Biden are the ones who elected Obama in 2008 and in 2012.
Today’s LIBERAL Arts degree at a four year college definitely has an appropriate name.
Would you guys on the Left want someone voting . . . who only voted against Obama because they thought he was from Kenya? Or would you rather have someone who was competent in understanding our government casting a vote?
Some of you didn’t watch the video before you commented . . .”
