Children are smarter than adults. Why can't they vote?

Children, although surveys show they have greater support for things like peace, democracy, and freedom than adults, are denied the right to vote on the excuse "They're too young to understand." Excuse me? Um... no. Maybe you're too old to understand, but do we deny the right to vote to 90-year-old right wing conservatives? No. Do we deny the right to vote to 15-year-old left wing liberals? Yes. Is this fair? No. Absolutely not. It is a desperate attempt to hold on to power by the ruling class, an effort that will ultimately fail.
