If you are old enough to die for this country, you should be old enough to drink.

Until a drunken 18 yr old is passed out on your lawn, or walks in front of your car, or GOD FORBID gets behind the wheel and harms or kills someone you love.

Half of the 30 yr olds I see can't handle their booze, you really want to put three years worth of additional drunks on the road?

Let's not forget that they're already drinking! How many 18, 19, and 20 year old college students DON'T know someone who's 21?

....LIKE~ it really matters what the drinking age is..kids start drinking at a younger age every yr..i think the avg age is like 9 or 10 now...lol

People obey laws they chose to mostly. Its the honor system unless ur a total retard. And many are...lol The prison system is full...of them type. No vacancy. What does that tell u..they jail all the retards cause they cant actully catch the real criminals..cause they are retarded as well. Its one big retarded system thats designed that way. Corruption at its finest..or worst depending if ur the NOT the beneficiary of the corruption and power and postion in this corrupted society we all live in.

Am I wrong?
