I can just imagine the howls of outrage from the Tea Party if 16 year olds can marry.

Scratch that, they already can in most southern states.

Some of those states even their cousins!

Nevermind.

:D

Our 16 year olds can enlist but they don't get sent to the front line. They can marry and sign legal documents. Doesn't mean we think they should, just that legally they are allowed to do so.

It would fundamentally change the legal definition of "adult" in this country.

If they can vote, can they not enlist in the military without their parents consent, sign other legal contracts, etc.

It would be a MESS.

Plus, I think 18 is pushing the limit on maturity.

Do you think your young people are too immature to make a decision about their future?

I was in the group who was able to vote at 18 right after they lowered the age from 21.

I cannot see them going any lower than that. Opens up all kinds of cans of worms if they do.

Argentina has just lowered the voting age to 16 which coincidentally is the age Scotland is considering.


How do you think the U.S. of A. would change if you lowered the voting age?
