Con

i think you should have to be at twenty one because you are mature enough to make your own decision
studentathletechristian8

Pro

I thank my opponent for the debate.

I affirm the resolution, "should you be able to drink at any age."

Definitions:

you- one; anyone; people in general. [1]

able- having necessary power, skill, resources, or qualifications. [2]

drink- to take water or other liquid into the mouth and swallow it. [3]

I believe that people in general should be able to drink at any age. The entrance of water into the body through drinking is a necessary part of living within the human population. People need to be able to drink to sustain human life. If people were not allowed to drink at any age, they would end up dieing from a lack of the consumption of fluids. The importance of drinking, especially consuming water, is too important to be looked over so quickly. [4]

My opponent states, "i think you should have to be at twenty one because you are mature enough to make your own decision." However, you would not be able to make it to twenty one years of age if you were not able to drink before that time period.

The resolution is affirmed. Thank you.

Hey man, I argued the resolution. It mentioned nothing of alcohol. Con should have established the guidelines in the first round, but failed to do so.

See what I mean, guys like SAC8 will jump at a debate with a poorly worded resolution in the hope of an easy win.

You want to mention alcohol quick before someone destroys you with semantics.

Wait...ignore my #1. Should have read more closely. My bad.

1) Your RD 1 post makes you sound Pro...the Con position would be saying "no, you shouldn't be able to drink at any age." Clarify?

2) "At any age" is gonna kill this debate...
