I agree but closing it off to such a restricted point would create too much of a risk of single ideological control through manipulation of the educational process.

Better question: Should there be an age limit on when your too old to vote? Does anybody realize how much the old people vote fvck's everyone over. Everywhere from keeping away drugs, gay marriage, and not to mention lobbying the government for a sh1t ton of goodies, making them the biggest welfare queens ever.

Half of them are going to dead in the next 4 years anyways, why should they get a vote.

Modern politics aren't taught as part of a course curriculum. If there is teaching bias, it's going to be present either way.

That's guaranteed for any academic qualification. Academia=mainstream left majority in perpetuity.

The voting age should be 9001

Says the 14 year old. It really pisses me off that people too young to vote continually push for lower voting ages. There is a reason you are too young to vote.

Can you imagine if the voting age was 15? The national election would be like high-school student body elections. It would be a popularity contest, with false promises of less homework and more vacations. Blah! It frustrates me just thinking about it.

I simply disagree that the degree of liberalism apparent in college educated people is the result of teaching bias. I think that's simply the natural result. Many college educated people are Libertarian. It's not so much that it advances liberalism but that it erodes traditionalism.

However, if the control of government became dependent on a single major, I do think it would become overrun with effective propaganda in actuality. And most likely not in a liberal way.

We'd be in trouble if elections ever turned into a popularity contest full of unkeepable promises.

Age means nothing, you should have to pass a test that covers the constitution and how capitolism works to vote. If a ten year old can pass the test then let them vote. Better than letting some 38 year old person who has no understanding of either be allowed to vote simply because of their age.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

Vey few people would be voting though, young or old, if they had to take and pass a test.

Whenever is the age of majority. I can arbitrarily choose a number, but it's kind of irrelevant in my opinion. As for driving I dont think there should be any age restriction provided that they can show themselves to be able to drive.
