In the Democratic stronghold of Maryland, the experiments that have led to the political atrocity that is HR 1 are now normalizing the concept of CHILDREN voting for public officials. Wait: it gets even better, a lawsuit is currently underway because while students of public schools between sixth and eleventh grade were allowed to vote for a seat on the Howard County School board… students of religious schools were BANNED from voting.
According to The Federalist,
“The suit alleges that the student-member process of only allowing minors to run violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. This is because adults are not given an equal opportunity to have a say in this individual’s election to represent the county. The suit also employs the Equal Protection Clause to allege that teachers who can wield power on which students will be selected via the process are unfair. “They’ve created a preferred class of voting for the students over the adults,” PILF spokeswoman Lauren Bowman told The Federalist. “The teachers are in control of the process and the nominations, and even the elections. We don’t even know how they are really counting all the votes.”
In one singular move, the leftists in Maryland diluted the political power of parents by allowing CHILDREN to vote for the school board and they further disenfranchised the religious and statistically more conservative students! It’s a double whammy! Kind of takes your breath away doesn’t it.
Now consider that in the Democrat-Socialist power play known as HR1 , it’s the real Democrat plan to subvert our electoral process, and it includes a clause to give children the vote as well. Under the new law’s provisions the “Voter Registration Efficiency Act”- Under 18 can register to vote, begins a pilot program to register all High School students over age 16.”
The Voter Registration Efficiency Act, if signed into law will enact the following,
- A State may not refuse to accept or process an individual’s application to register to vote in elections for Federal office on the grounds that the individual is under 18 years of age at the time the individual submits the application, so long as the individual is at least 16 years of age at such time.
- The Election Assistance Commission shall carry out a pilot program under which the Commission shall provide funds during the one-year period beginning after the date of the enactment of this part to eligible local educational agencies for initiatives to provide information on registering to vote in elections for public office to secondary school students in the 12th grade.
The goal has never been clearer: uninformed voters who have been indoctrinated with Democrat-Socialist talking points, schooled in Marxism and Critical Race Theory will invariably vote for the Party that carries those agendas forward. Between unhindered illegal immigration and amnesty, decreasing the voting age and rewriting our electoral processes, the Democrats intend to make certain that Donald J. Trump was the last Republican President America will ever have.
