  • The Problem: The laws prohibiting people under 21 from certain rights and privileges are unacceptable! At age 18, we can go into debt in this country, we can fight for this country and die for this country, we are considered in all ways responsible for ourselves in this country (excluding grade school students, who are still considered the responsibility of their parent(s)/guardian(s)). The laws currently do not protect against age discrimination of people under the age of 40 except in the state of New York. It's up to us to make it known that age discrimination effects everyone and it is unacceptable! It is age discrimination to prohibit us from smoking, drinking, and owning a hand gun. It is age discrimination for companies and individuals to deny us hotel rooms, rental cars, rental properties, loans, and more all because we are under 21. Discrimination is unconstitutional and the country has been discriminating against adults under the age of 21. If we are considered an adult at the age of 18, we should be allowed to be adults! If we are allowed to make adult decisions and are held responsible for those decisions, then we are adults and should be treated and respected as such.
  • The Solution: I propose that the legal age of majority for ALL rights and privileges afforded to the average law-abiding American be 18 years of age, excluding grade school students. I propose that we give out special IDs to grade school students and different IDs for people who are no longer in high school, for which you need to present a high school diploma, GED, or notarized/certified letter from the school board stating that you are no longer in school. 
  • What Can We Do: We need to reach out to our government to get them to fix this! The branches of Congress can repeal the law. The Supreme Court can deem it unconstitutional. We need to take action now to help our fellow Americans of all adult ages, for today's generation and those to come! Sign now to show your support of young adults and to speak out against age discrimination against 18-20 year old adults!
