Got Stake?

Racine State Representative Cory Mason is proposing a Wisconsin Constitutional amendment to allow 17 year-olds the vote.
“Suffrage has always been about who we believe has a legitimate stake in our democracy. I think 17-year-olds are as legitimate a stakeholder as any other group that has a right to vote.”
After reading this article to my 4 year-old grandson, he responded, "I want to vote, too. I am a legitimate stakeholder. I'll be paying up the yang for your dang debt and deficits my whole life."

"Grandpa... you 'forgot your wallet' again?? Yeah, I'll bail you out and pay for the Taco Bell... again!"
