Should the U.S. lower the drinking age to 18?
|Yes, 18 is better.||
|No, 21 is fine.||

18 is age of majority - not 21. Telling adults they can't have a drink didn't work in the 1920s and it isn't working today, either.

The drinking age used to be 18, but then irresponsible KIDS kept drinking, driving and killing themselves as well as innocent people.
Kids are distracted enough when they're driving. They try to show off for their friends when their sober, let alone with alcohol in them.
The age was raised for a good reason. Hell, it should be raised to 25. Most 21 year olds are still too immature to drink.

You can vote and join the military at 18 and serve your country, but you can't have a beer? Hockey Puck

Being able to vote is a far cry from and 18 year old going to a bar or high school house party, getting hammered, then driving home.
And as far as the military goes, there is no draft. If an 18 year old chooses to join the army, etc., that's his choice. No one forces people to join these days and when there was a draft, the drinking age WAS only 18.
I know where you're coming from though. I felt the same way when I was underage.
