Yes, if you can die for your country...you should also be allowed a beer.

I think it is absurd
1) Listen you are 18 your an adult vote for me
2) listen you are 18 your an adult let me send you overseas so you can die for it. Even if the reasons are absurd, outlandish, and has nothing to do with the principles of the United States.
3) listen you are 18 you can get married and raise you own family.
4) listen you are 18 a kid. You can't have a beer.
You kidding. Beer is for adults.

most people have drank before 21 so they might as well make the drinking age 18 and the USA is like one of few countries who has the drinking age at 21
