Kamala Harris – the Dem’s latest last, best hope – was channeling her inner Whitney Houston yesterday when she sent out this silly tweet:
Children are our nation’s future. We must listen to them about what they care about and give them a voice in our government. pic.twitter.com/buBBTj1MNc

It’s the kind of ooey, gooey, feel-good nonsense that liberals love to spout. Because everyone knows that a Democrat senator who tweets that children are our future is destined for great things. Why, she should be president for that kind of out of the box thinking!
To gauge how feasible Kamala’s idea is, I went to my 10-year-old daughter and asked her what she would do if she had a voice in the government.
Her answer? She’d make sure every family in America got a dog. And families who have a dog allergy would get some other kind of animal.
Which is a superb and very sweet answer! It’s exactly what a child should answer. And can’t you just see Kamala Harris’ nod of approval? Giving people things, that’s exactly what the government should be doing!
Liberals like to ignore a lot of biological truths, don’t they? Like the fact that a child cannot rationalize things and see future consequences because their prefrontal cortexes aren’t fully developed until around age 25.
Remember this old saying (that is attributed to both Winston Churchill and Ted Nugent)?
If you aren’t a liberal by age 20, you have no heart.
If you are still a liberal by age 30, you have no brain.
It’s completely legit. The science is settled.
Then there’s the fact that children indeed have a say in government. It’s called voting, and every 18-year-old has the right and responsibility to do it (even while their prefrontal cortexes continue to develop).
So there’s a reason children do not and should not participate actively in government. They, like Democrats, cannot see the longterm consequences of their actions. (Exhibit A: Obamacare.) If it feels right, it must be right. Right?
And there’s a reason Democrats like Kamala Harris don’t occupy the White House and are in the minority in the Senate, the House, and a majority of governorships and state legislatures: Because they are utterly devoid of ideas. Quoting a Whitney Houston song is apparently all they’ve got in their arsenal.
Bring on 2020.
