As an 18-year-old, I am now able to sign up to die for the people of my country and vote to elect one of the most powerful leaders in the world. And yet, I am not legally allowed to have a glass of wine with my family at dinner.
But if you will trust me enough to fight for you and elect the president of the U.S., then why should you not trust me to buy and consume an alcoholic beverage?
I’ll tell you why. When you put an already inexperienced driver, who now comes equipped with a cell phone fit for text messaging and a stereo that plays music loud enough to blow an eardrum, who wants to add the extra temptation of driving under the influence of alcohol?
