We would be much better off if the voting age were moved to 25. That way, these kids would have become adults, worked in the real world, paid bills, and paid taxes.
Instead, the Dims want to lower the voting age to 16!

Yeah, while they are still in the midst of liberal school indoctrination.

How is this for an idea: Let's make taxpayers provide free babysitting via universal pre-K, and then lower the voting age to 4. Never too early to start the brainwashing.

Let's pretend that what you say is true, and Arabs and Jews mutually wipe each other from the face of the Earth. So, what's the big problem other than gas prices skyrocket?

Tutsi and Hutu in Africa mutually killed over 1mln of them not so long ago. Did you even hear about that? And even of you did, did you care about them even for a second? I doubt so. Then why anyone should care about Jews and Arabs doing the same? Nukes? This planet can survive just fine with another 20-30 of them blowing up, and I don't think Israel has more. So, what else?
You say this as if “blackmail” is their goal. It is the reality of the situation, whether we support Israel or not. No country with nuclear weapons is going to allow themselves to be taken over. And why should they? It is every country’s right to protect themselves. We would do the same thing if it came down to a choice between that, and losing our country.

Framing it as “blackmail” is nothing more that an attempt to show Israel in a bad light, for doing something that any other country would be expected to do, given the same circumstances.

The times are changing. Millennial support for the Israeli state is at its the lowest, and trending downwards. And the Millennials are a huge generation. The world is going to look very different once they step into their power. I look forward to it.


Of course- democrats hate Jews. What else is new?

I guess you support Islamic state terrorism.
You have no clue about what goes on in Israel. You just kowtow to your left wing Masters at school

Yet voting for trump was inversely correlated with education level. Ditto for voting brexit.

Cite please?
I know of educated people who sadly have to hide how they vote because the dictatorship on the left persecutes those who do not vote the correct way in the voting booth.

all generations are left-leaning and progressive until they reach their 30's and 40's. The very boomers mentioned, the Peace and Love generation of the 60's, are now much more "conservative".

No. Conservatives hate Jews - as evidenced by their association and comfort given to White Nationalists.

About 80% of Jewish people vote Democratic - are you saying they are stupid?
