Yes they should. They are sentient, paying taxes if they work, and potentially getting shot at in school. They ought to have a voice. The right wing’s notion of youth being too “innocent” and incapable of making adult judgement is a reflection of how perverse and antiquated the Republicans and they’re base have become. It’s time we embrace kids as adults in training with a mind their own and not as the object of our gross obsession with “innocence.” Besides, give us more progressive votes from youth who know better and have the hope to change so we can yank the torch from ignorant, stupid old geezers (or anyone dumb enough to believe Republicans).
