I am josh i am 12 years old and i say children should be allowed to run for president of course with some restrictions(age/IQ ect.)
Most people would ridicule me for this but look at these past elections
donald trump:whines bursts out, doesn't think of consequences
hillary clinton: did something stupid because it was "convenient"(almost caused deaths) "slam talks" other opponents gains respect for having popular friends

those are all childish attitudes and these are our front runners and some children are much smarter than these people. we are people to.

There have been many young leaders in history and none have been terrible. This also may teach children to be more successful and mature kids repeat what they see especially if they are close in age and what do we give them as examples "damn daniel" we need to show kids to work hard

Can't be any worse than letting felons, the dead, non-US citizens, and people who already voted vote. A teenage president couldn't be worse than a felon president on accident.

That was a troll vote anyway, so I don't care.

I think Airmax knows why I was trolling.

>Reported vote: tejretics// Mod action: NOT Removed<

0 points awarded. Reasons for voting decision: Pro says teaching styles do affect classroom behavior giving examples of their own experience, which is clearly an appeal to authority fallacy but con doesnt call pro out on that!!!! fallacies are bad, but since con doesnt note that, I vote a tie

[*Reason for non-removal*] The voter does provide some feedback to the debaters, and as such, the vote is sufficient.
