LETTER: Leave voting age alone

To the Editor:

To those who think it’s a great idea to lower the voting age to 16.

Let’s also consider this: To allow them to join the military to help defend our country.

Allow them to legally smoke and drink and get behind the wheel. How about to sign any legal document and be responsible for it.

If after a few years of allowing this we can then talk and decide to lower the age to 14.

Amazing. They can’t balance the budget but they can come up with this idea.

What we need is more farmers to run for Congress. They at least know how to balance their budget and have common sense.
