    •  So full of stereotypes (0+ / 0-)

      Immature? Guess what-  people don't automatically become mature at the age of 18.  There are plenty of immature and uninformed 18, 25, 30 or 40 year olds.  70% of ADULTS couldnt name their OWN STATE'S senators! Yet NONE of these folks are kept from voting.  Even individuals who are severely mentally retarded are gnerally not kept from voting (I am NOT saying they should be kept from voting).  Why shouldn't the US join a growing number of countries around the world in expanding democracy.

      •  ask parents of kids who get arrested at 16 (0+ / 0-)

        if they want their kid to be given the rights and responsibilities of an adult

        being 18 doesn't make you mature, but it does make you responsible for your life

        stop being in such a hurry to give up your time in life in which you can make mistakes and not have it define the rest of your life
