Change the Voting Age?

Ann Coulter has a brilliant piece out entitled “Repeal the 26th Amendment!” and I think she may be on to something. Much of our generation doesn’t have a stake in this game unless they’re married, actually own property, or are in the military, anything along those lines, but yet get to vote for benefits for themselves without ever having paid into the system. They want something for nothing without realizing that someone has to pay. If they had to have a stake in the system to vote (much like voting laws in early America) I have a feeling they’d vote much differently.
