No, 21 is young enough, and I actually think the voting age should be raised if it weren't for our young 18 yr olds serving our country...or make them pass a test so they know about the govt. Too many youngins/Tweeters got on the Band Wagon for Obama and didn't even know who VP or Sec of State was.

The drinking age should be lowered to 18, as it was in my day. If you can be in combat and possibly lose your life, you should be considered mature enough to drink at 18. Agree 100% w/ Deborah.

A person will find ways to drink if that is what they decide to do, whether he/she be 10 years old or 90. When should alcohol be made legally available to a person? I'd say, at the same age they become a "legal adult".......now, there's the question.............................:)
