Do young people have a valid role to play in national and international politics?

Do you think that young people actually have a role to play in politics?

Many people look down upon young people who try to have an input as being to young to know what they are speaking about or to have an opinion in the first place.

What is your opinion on this?

    Sep 24 2011: I definitely believe so. I don't feel like your age has anything to do with if you should have input or a say in national and international politics. If you feel a certain way about issues in your homeland or across the sea, why not speak up? Furthermore, I'm just saying, if we are old enough to vote at the age of 18, why can't we say anything until we reach some age? (I'm 22 btw lol)
