I think it should be 18. however i think if it were lower there would be less binge drinkers @ college campuses

This all goes in a circle i think. Like should the government ban this or ban that or lower the drinking age? My opinion, and we debate this in school all the time, (I've learned to stay home those days) is that it wouldn't matter. I can get alcohol right now, prolly take me about 10 minutes. And I'll guarentee you that everyone else, or at least 97% of the people here under 21 could as well. Along with weed, e, and acid, if not harder stuff too. Now, my point, it really wouldn't matter what the drinking age is, lowering it isn't going to lower the number of people drinking, it's just going to lower the number who do it illigally. Yeah, it would lower binge drinking maybe, but it could be 18 or 14 or 16 or 32 and 1/2, people who wanna drink will, people who don't wanna drink won't. That's basically what it comes down to. Making laws or changing them isn't going to change what people do. If that makes any sense.

You are most certainly NOT mature OR conscious enough to choose a leader when you're 18. Look at who has been in office for the past 8 years.

the majority of 18 year olds that vote are A LOT more informed that most of the 40 year olds that vote. At 40 the mass majority will vote one party across the WHOLE ballot. Myself as well as my friends actually take the time to learn the ballot who is running and their stances and vote for beliefs and stances rather than party.

So I would argue that more 18 year olds voting would be a good thing. I would also argue Enlever that as a whole not many 18 - 21 year olds voted for Bush either term so I wouldnt say they made an uniformed decision.

And if they can join the armed forces and die as well as vote for who tells them which country to die in they should be able to legally drink while training to kill or be killed imho.

18's about right too. 21 seems so arbitrary considering 18 is when you're legally allowed to do pretty much everything else in that vein.

wasn't really the point whether u are in fact an informed individual, the point is that LEGALLY u can vote, so u should be able to drink..

plus, i don't live in the us, but form the outside it doesn't really seems that young ppl were the ones that voted for bush..

Probably about 80% of 18-21 year olds that voted did not vote for Bush.

And all I can say is that I agree with justjukie, if you can be in the military at 18. And be forcefully drafted if needed then I say you should be able to drink. Anyone that has to put there life on the line because someone with a higher rank says so, whether the believe in the effort or dont, should be able to drink. Therefor, the age should be 18.

i think the problem here isn't so much the legal age to buy and consume liqueur, but more the fact that we think we need to drink in the first place...and drink to excess. How fucked up is this world that we take some sorta pleasure in destroying our liver and paying people to do it to our selves.. No i can see having a little from time to time in a social environment, but binge drinking is a bigger issue than just when you can start drinking. Now this might make me sound like a puttz, but i think if society in general wasn't so fucked we wouldn't need to wash down our daily troubles with bottles of jack every weekend.
thats just my opinion.

I'm not one to take orders. I'll refer to you how i please. And i'm not so sure i give a shit if i'm a bitch. I'm nice to the people who are attention craving ass faces.

I know the meaning of above. And last i checked, people who crave attention aren't above those who get it when they deserve it, without begging.
