O'Reilly just had a guest on who was argueing that 18 year olds are too young to make the decision to enlist in the military. She cited the facts that they cannot smoke or buy alcohol until they turned 21.
OK. That makes sense. I can go along with that.
But I never heard Bill or her bring up the right to vote. The same logic should apply, and we should repeal the 26th Amendment, and return the voting age to 21. (In fact IIRC, one of the main arguements to support the passage of the 26 th Amendment was the fact that 18 year olds were in the military....Old enough to fight..old enough to vote.)
Not mature enough to fight, not mature enough to vote.
