Ask Blake Picture111

Dear Blake,

I’m 19 years old and I have a lot of friends that don’t have a clue of what’s going on politically and in current events. Do you think the legal age to vote should be raised back to 21?

Signed, Irving

Dear Irving,

I don’t have an issue with a person’s age as much as I do with their intellect. When people can’t even name their state capital, then I feel they are too dimwitted to vote. I believe that if someone doesn’t know relatively simple facts about this country, they should be immediately deported, and this would include all races! Even if their family has been in the United States for five generations or even more, they should still get the boot by returning them to the country their ancestors came from. Unfortunately considering where you currently live, if I had the power I would ban people from voting if they lived in an area with a high concentration of stupidity, which would include New Jersey, West Virginia, and most parts of Cleveland. I hope this helps.
