Seriously it really grinds my gears that the Canadian government thinks that 16 years olds are mature and intelligent enough to drive a car, work a full-time job, pay taxes, apply for a passport, and are able to live independently on their own without a parent or guardian if they want to and get married with parent consent.

But when it comes to voting the Canadian thinks 16 year olds are not mature and intelligent enough to vote. Its completely ridiculous in my opinion.

    Knowing myself and my high school at 16, I gotta disagree. I’m sure there are a good number of responsible 16yos out there, but there’s a lot more that don’t respect the gravity of what they’re doing.

    I would have absolutely voted for whoever was stupidest for the meme, as would many of my friends.
