Do you think that the voting age should be lowered to age 18? If so why?


I'm a bit confused as I believe you meant to say "drinking" age and not "voting" age. I'm going with "drinking" age. Additionally, I'm not sure if your are for or against lowering the drinking age, so I'll just go ahead and give you my take.

I'm 50 years old and characterize myself as relatively conservative. However, since I was a teenager, I have consistently felt that the drinking age in the U.S. should be lowered to 18.

IMHO, if society deems that the majority of it's 18 year old members are responsible enough to be granted the legal status to enter into a contract, cast a vote, or enlist in the military, it would be consistent to allow those same members to legally purchase and consume alcohol.

So first you make the topic drinking age.
Then you talk about voting age.
Then you infer that the voting age is higher than 18 but it's not.
Then you imply that your opponent will be affirming the resolution, but you're pro.

OMG this debate is so full of fail it's halarious.
