This is just one reason why the voting age should never have been lowered. College students are too naive and too easily swayed by pretty words to be trusted with the vote. They have no experience of life outside their parents home and no critical thinking skills at all.

Anyone that does not produce or contribute to society should have no right to vote on how the wealth of others should be spent.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could select how yours taxes are used, military being the only mandatory one.

Which is how the Constitution was originally set up... Only property owners could vote.

“When I’m president, I will make college affordable for every American.” -- President Obama, 2008

Any student who voted for President Obama--in either 2008 or 2012--in order to cut their college costs was sold a bill of goods. In Obama’s first four years, national tuition prices rose 25 percent and average graduating loan debt rose 16 percent.

Now, the Obama-signed sequester (aka “fiscal cliff”) includes an 8.2 percent cut in non-Pell student aid, an across-the-board cut of more than $140 million. Student loan origination fees will also go up $91 million.
