California has some nutty people

California lawmakers propose lowering voting age to 14 for state elections.

They are not mature enough to drive at age 14, but they are old enough to vote?

"A proposed amendment to California's constitution would give 16-year-olds a half-vote and 14-year-olds a quarter-vote in state elections"

Counting votes by halves and quarters of votes.

"If we could vote, politicians would see us as votes, not just kids, and they would take our issues seriously," said Robert Reynolds, a student at Berkeley High School.

I don't believe I have ever taken anyone from Berkely seriously. Does anyone else?
