I thank my opponent for this debate, I love debates of this nature.

=====Arguments/Rebuttals=====

"I beleive that once a person is concidered and adult they should be able to make their own choices, drinking being one of them"

While my opponent's beliefs are interesting, they lack any support and thus are insubstantial. Thus, the resolution is negated.

Unfortunately, my opponent has failed to provide any substantial arguments to support his belief that the drinking age should be moved back to 21.

The drinking age was moved to 21 with serious considerations to safety. Moving it back to 18 would be making society less safe based on hard statistics. As my opponent failed to provide any real reason to move the drinking age back, the only foreseeable consequence of moving the drinking age back to 18 would be a negative. I thus negate the resolution.

Lol, true. If you are asking if anyone has actually waited until they are 21 to try a drink (i.e. a sip of beer or a taste of wine) then I imagine few people actually have. However if you are asking how many people have actually waited until they are 21 to begin drinking, then I imagine that number grows significantly. I have tried alcohol, but I don't drink.

Well, I don't think anyone has. I mean, not drinking for about three days kills most people of dehydration... so...

Hahahahaha, I am sure. If you think that you would win, set up the debate and we'll see.

Ok, you two seem to miss two important points.

First of all, who the hell under 21 (or 18, depending on the country) cares about the legal drinking age? Second of all, laws are made to be broken.

Oh, I would've won this debate 100-0 ;P

Well, I expected Pro to make some argument as to why he believed that the drinking age should be moved back to 18, but no such luck thus.
