We have become the Veruca Salt of the world. America has become spoiled in her ways and this has led us where we are today: with a billionaire, a Socialist Senator, and a corrupt ex-First Lady running for president. But these are the candidates we deserve. Currently, the voting age is at 18. But should it be raised? How much does an 18 year old fresh out of high school actually ‘know’ about the world? It is easy for these politicians and candidates to corrupt the political system and continue to spoil our lives. A young adult’s mind can be easy to corrupt if a candidate and/or politician says the right things and makes the right promises. And aren’t we all to blame for allowing this to go on?
