David Cameron came up to Scotland yesterday to meet Alex Salmond and discuss Scottish Independence

Allegedly David Cameron was unamused as Alex Salmond said the referendum vote will be open to 16 years olds

This has opened many a discussion on the television and radio as in England the voting age is 18 but Alex Salmond is saying 'everyone 16 and over will get a vote on this in Scotland

I am pro independence (i'm sure most of you know that)

But leaving aside the politics what age do YOU think children should be before they get to vote?

16, 18, 21

16 seems OK to me in principle, as people can be in full time work at that age, but I doubt many kids have much knowledge or interest. If they do vote so young, I'd think they're just going to go along with their parents' leanings.

Do you think 16's old enough Dawny?

Maybe the question should be why would the state suddenly want to change the age now and on this issue? If someone pays tax and can die for their country it stands to reason that they should have a say in which bunch of arsholes gets to fuck them over for a few years. I really can't see that's the reasoning behind this proposal. The fact of the matter is Scotland is already an EU state the vote is academic to let the people think they had/have a choice when it's a done deal already. Do you really think they would give the people the power to effect the plan? Like they did in Ireland for the Lisbon Treaty (initially known as the Reform Treaty (amended the Maastricht Treaty)? lol Obviously NO! isn't an option when the State wants people to accept the steaming pile of shit known as the EU. :ownd:

As I do not believe in votes or elections any longer in this tyrant system called democracy in typical orwellian newspeak it is completely irrelevant to me at which age the slaves are allowed to take part in this charade.

because error is repeatedly preached among us, not

and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

Shot your-self their in the foot there,we're all connected like it or lump it , if in your reality there slaves you are too. I guess you see tptb to be the slaves masters, unless in your consciousness your one of tptb. If not then you just labeled your-self a slave.

PERSONALLY, I THINK ITS' A MATTER OF MERITS. For politicians and voters. Not of biological age.

Not politicians that come from hollywood. And voters should at least have college, to understand how corrupt politicans and the system is.
So it is not the "right age", its the RIGHT MERITS fro politicians , and voters to understand them and not elect wishy washy candidates,
as it has happened through history.

Of course I am a slave in their matrix from their point of view
according to their rules and illegal laws.

I understand what you mean.
Real people with merits, who KNOW what they are doing. That which makes people think their vote counts.
If things get to be like that ,we wouold stop being in hands of gangsters, and deal with people who REALLY know.
People must have merits also to vote ,at least have college, not simply because they want you to vote.
The more mature people are ,the better.
This is the ideal, if not we might as well forget all about it.
