That was exactly the thinking in Canada that caused the feds to lower the age of "adulthood" to 18. The fucking Afghanistan war.

Sorry, it wasn't a war. Hell, it wasn't even really a police action. It was just a bunch of great kids getting killed because old farts are stupid.

Yep, and it's usually a majority of that 45 and over crowd that vote to send the 18 crowd to war. While denying them everything else for moral principles of course.

I'm sorry....I agree, if you are on active duty, or honorably discharged you should be able to vote no matter what age.....In the 1968 election, I was 20, with my ass in the red dirt of South Vietnam, and was not old enough to vote.....Life sucks, you just have to get used to it..

Now back to reality...Yes it was a war, a real nasty war...Afghanistan was some shithole country with a failed government that was allowing some nut-job jihadist (Usama bin Laden) sanctuary, after he ordered the bombing of the World Trade Center...On 9/11/01 This despicable Piece of Shit attacked us....Not the other way around, like you revisionist try to imply...

I agree.

It should all be one number. What that number is is arguable but IMO everything from driving to shooting and everything in between should be one number. Why it is staggered makes no sense.

The problem is that the 18 to 20 year-olds are the easiest ones for the Democrats to proselytize with their Socialist dogma...Unless they are in the military, These people have not seen the real world yet....and, it is possible, they are being brainwashed by some Marxist Professor.....
Thanks from Sabcat

You think I’m supposed to think that you hold some special place because you got sent to Vietnam, and because you were robbed of a fair chance I ought to be as well? Fuck off, old man. You’re the same stock as the people that sent you there.
Thanks from skews13 and RNG

Get your knickers out of your asscrack snotnose....1st nobody owes me jack-shit because I served in Vietnam....2nd I said that the voting age should stay at 18 if you are on active duty and 3rd I meant because I was denied the right to vote when I was in combat because I was not old enough does not bother me...

My generation (effin Hippies excluded) was not a bunch of snowflakes who whined and sniveled about every little perceived slight....We were able to suck it up and understand that life ain't fair....and then you die...

I wouldn’t have gone willingly to go fight a pointless war. You’re a coward for going along with the system.
