Hello and thank you for joining my debate I will be arguing in favor of decreasing the drinking age requirement.

This is how the debate will be layed out:

1st round: Acceptence only (anything more will be an automatic forfeit)!
2nd round: Opening argument / statement

Any violation to the setup will result in an automatic forfeit.

People as young as 18 are sent into the mitiltary to fight for our country. Some of them lose their lives because of something out of their control. People are premitted to drive as young as 16 - and if they are reckless on the road then then can take OTHERS lives. The legal smoking age in most states is already 18 - another controversial right for the younger generation. Here is the point I am trying to make out of all this - if people are sent to fight for our country and possibly DIE at the age of 18, if people by the age of 18 are already driving and endangering theirn lives and OTHERS, and if smoking is already permitted for ages 18 and up - then my question to you is: why can't people have a drink? If our government thinks 18 year olds are responsible enough to handle people's lifes, then how can they not be responsible with a alcoholic drink? We expect too much from our younger crowd - and if we keep pushing them to put their lives in danger, then we might as well grant them permission to use a substance that is dangerous ONLY FOR THEM if they choose to consume it - no innocent bystanders (like on the road).

Haha, I think the legal age to drink should stay where it is if not raise, but I'd love to hear how this turns out.
