Nancy Pelosi was in Ferguson, Missouri yesterday discussing the idea of lowering the voting age to 16-years-old. “We’re obviously collecting thoughts about it,” said the Speaker. Well, that’s when the 78-year-old California Democrat got utterly destroyed. You don’t want to miss this.

The Democrats under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi are actively campaigning to destroy America as we know it. They want to lower the voting age to 16, they want to do away with the Electoral College, and they want to change the way we appoint Supreme Court Justices.

Don’t be fooled, these rabid leftists are as serious as a heart attack. It’s all part of their “Trump Derangement Syndrome” brought on by losing the 2016 presidential election. Each measure points directly to their need to get rid of President Donald Trump.

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi explained to reporters Monday what kind of steps she may consider to lower the federal voting age to 16 years old at a press conference in Ferguson, Missouri,” the Daily Caller reported.

“We’re obviously collecting thoughts about it. Just because someone has a good idea — any of us — doesn’t mean it’s going to the Floor next,” Pelosi said. “It means you go through the process. You build consensus. You build a crescendo. That’s another club I’m starting: the crescendo club.”

Pelosi, at her weekly presser last Thursday, told the Daily Caller she always supported lowering the voting age. The Democrat-proposed legislation, known as the “For The People Act” (H.R.1), included a debate over a failed amendment intended to lower the voting age to 16 years of age. The amendment was defeated 126-305, but H.R.1 passed.

“I myself, personally — I’m not speaking for my caucus. I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16,” Pelosi said last week. “I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school, when they’re interested in all of this, when they’re learning about government to be able to vote.”

“When kids are in high school is really a prime time for them to be aware of civics,” the Speaker declared. “Many years ago, when I was in school, civics was a requirement. Then — remember that? Well, you don’t remember that, but you read about it.”

Pelosi is hoping to “capture” these kids when their brains aren’t fully developed and many kids are swayed by leftist talking points. “So, the point is that when they are in high school, we see such a heightened interest in history and civics and climate and gun safety and you name it. And that would be a time for them to be registered to vote,” claimed Pelosi.

It isn’t by accident other Democrats like Elizabeth Warren are calling for Americans to do away with the Electoral College either, but it may not work out as they are planning. “Here’s something that few people know,” Bill Bennet pointed out on Fox News Tuesday. “The popular vote was won by Hillary Clinton but almost all of that margin was in the state of California. If you take California vote out of it, which I know you can’t …the point is in the other 49 states Donald Trump won the popular vote.

Well, Nancy Pelosi got destroyed by Americans who aren’t on board with her radical plan. “Here’s a thought. Even the 16-year-olds think this is idiotic. Old enough to vote, old enough to own a gun. Genius,” said Twitter user “Lew Brown.”

“PROOF #Democrats & the @DNC are utterly #insane! They want KIDS to vote at 16, but will NOT allow them to buy cigarettes until they’re 21. Kids can die at 18 in the military. They can have abortions at 14, so why not choose that age @SpeakerPelosi? #DemocratsAreDestroyingAmerica,” posted Twitter user “Fiscally Responsible StL Card Fan.”

“Reminds me of my 5-yr-old. If you’re not winning, change the rules. Let 16-yr-olds vote, let illegals vote, add more Supreme Court justices, change the electoral college. Maybe you’re just losing,” posted Twitter user “Hotdog!”

The Democrats have completely gone over to the dark side as a result of President Trump beating Hillary Clinton. Think about it. We now have the leadership of the Democratic Party, not fringe players, making the argument to lower the voting age, ensure illegal aliens can vote, getting rid of the Electoral College, and killing infants who are born after botched abortions.

They will say anything they think the worst people in our society want to hear just so they can get votes. Well, here’s where they are losing. Most Americans aren’t on board with these drastic measures that would obliterate the United States as we know it. Make sure all your family and friends have this information. When the majority of Americans find out these sick plans, it will shock them into turning their backs on the Democrats for good.
