Who actually thinks lowering the voting age to 16 is a good idea? Teenagers are idiots. I know, I was one and I was an idiot. It's a fact that you really don't stop being an idiot until at least your mid 20s. Age 21? Still an idiot. How about 22? Still a moron. I also think everyone should have to take some type of mental competency test before they're allowed to vote. Do you think the holocaust never happened? No voting for you.
The 16-year-olds can wait two years to vote when they will have hopefully completed enough of their high school education to learn about the holocaust and how it definitely did happen.

"If you let 16-year-olds vote you know they're going to write in Kanye West for president"
