If you are old enough to vote and to put your life on the line in the military at 18, then you should be able to drink a beverage that contains alcohol!

I could buy into enlisted military boys/girls being an exception. However in general, between the age of 18 and 21, there is a lot of maturing happening, so no, I definitely don't feel the age limit should be lowered at all.
It's true that a lot of teens are drinking.....however it's a well known fact that when you have to sneak to do stuff, that people won't do as much of it.
That's just my little opinion anyway.:)
WRONG! From my experience kids who have to sneak it drink way more that when it's allowed. There's just something about not being allowed to do it that makes them want to do it more.

Americans are the stupidest people ever. Disgraceful. Every other country has the age much lower, all the while having much less fatalities.The rest of the world is laughing at America, rightfully so.
The rest of the world has more intelligent and moral children and adults already. You Americans are stupid, amoral garbage. When I get through with you, you will all be servants to my Kenyan brothers. You will be glad to have even filthy water to share with the wild dogs and won't miss your drunkenness and drug addictions because you will all be taught to be silent and taught to live without any rights or freedoms whatsoever, you fools.

On the contrary teens are drinking younger these days. lowering the age will cause more teen deaths due to drinking related wrecks

Jonesboro's populated with staggering, falling down drunks, drunks that drive drunk, drunks that copulate drunk, drunks that abuse, drunks that kill. The kids in those households are drinking before they get out of middle school. You know it, you just don't want to admit it. Open your eyes. Ask the people dealing with the mess. You know it's true.
