That 18 year s old wont be ready to vote because they wont have an experince from before.

My opponent failed to realize that 18 is already the voting age in the United States. This is so simply because 18 is the legal age. When you are 18, you are seen as a mature person who is able to make complicated decisions at times. This also provides them with a glimpse of what type of decision they are going to make in the future and the stehp needed to make the decision. This also gives the newly legal individual a taste of what type of freedom they have and how to manipulate it to there use

Redefine what you're arguing, because I think I know what your proposition is but I'm not sure.
