OVERVIEW
I in the beginning thank Pro for such a controversial topic—the drinking age being lowered to 18. I as Con shall prove to the audience that in a matter of fact it’s worse for the drinking age to be lowered to 18. Because of the fact Pro did not provide any definitions pertaining to the debate—I shall provide it for you in the later segment of my debate. To make things fair I will provide one argument—as Pro only provided one
DEFINITIONS
Here are the definitions based off of www.dictionary.com
Drinking: Addicted to or indulging excessively in alcohol http://dictionary.reference.com...
Age: A period of human life, measured by years by birth http://dictionary.reference.com...
Should: Must, ought http://dictionary.reference.com...
Lowered: To cause to descend http://dictionary.reference.com...

REBUTTALS
I begin with the part where Pro says “iyes because 18 is wen your almost grown up n out the house” I do not understand what Pro has stated, so I can not rebuttal to anything he said. I urge Pro to clarify on what he said.
Arguments
DANGER
I begin with the fact that statistics proved that restraining alcohol from people 18-20 showed a significant decrease in highway fatalities by 13%. Federal Highway statistics showed that there were at least 25,000 less fatalities on the highway when the drinking age was 21. Also a number of sexual assaults, and campus crimes are attributed to drinking—which means having the drinking age be lowered will just increase the chances of this happening. In conclusion the drinking age should not be lower or what I have said earlier will happen.
