How young is too young to voice opinions on how our country should be run?

I'm 14. I want to know if people think that is too young to have opinions on how our country should be run. I know there will be people who refer to the voting age as a valid restriction and it is. However, I want to know now people's answers and reasons differ from mine. Also if people agree that my generation ( at least that responsible ones) should be included in the talks about the MASSIVE amount of debt that this country has since we and our children will be living with it.
