Teens of the age 18 and under should be able to have more freedom. they are the most discriminated against because of the actions of few. teens should have the same rights as adults and that also means having some of the same responsibility that goes along with it. if we do not give them the freedom they deserve then what good is our constitution if we don't allow them to experience the full affect of what their rights are and what there limits are. i say give them the full freedom they deserve

I counter your outlook under the scrutiny of the average 18-year-old's social exposure experience. Most 18-year-old's have been nurtured throughout childhood with the advance technological exposure that took previous generations more fine-tuning to become used to; in other words, what was a required class for us is mere reflex for them. That being said, the consequences of that increased potential requires more restrictions and guidance in order for them to be part of the adult society of the U.S.A without compromising the majority comfort level. You'd have to propose a sort of extra-educational curriculum especially made 17/18-year-old teenagers to sustain the countenance of humility and dependability that older generations rely on to avoid feeling overwhelmed by the obvious gap of talent and potential that modern day teenagers possess.

crime for teens is nothing more than the common speeding ticket according to CBS news. when it comes to Adults the scale expands all the way to murder. teens have proven more than responsible than most adults than any one can imagine. as for politics. teens should be able to vote at the age of 16 and up. politics actually give affect at this age but is not recognized to do so. if teens were given the right to vote, it would prove even great trust and more responsibility to the next ruling generation. plus more tens would take even bigger looks into political parties and what they have to offer to make America better .

Which you state is agreeable under the concept that they have the right by means of being closest to the role-model citizen we as a nation strive to become but my argument lies not with their flaws but their potential. If the older teens of this generation, 16+, are given so many rights to exercise before fully exploring their potential, then even their opinions, however substantial and qualified, will be based on the limit of their potential at that moment. I reinstate that we simply delay their exercising of the rights they quite obviously deserve so that they can receive an education actually equal to their latent talent, not by the standards of previous generations. In doing so, their decisions will be all the more impacting and beneficial because it will be with the total engrossment of their mature self, not the half-way point of their physiological maturity.
