A Modest Proposal

"Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts."
– Proverbs 31:6
Given the way this upcoming presidential election is shaping up, I think it is well past time that the US lowered the drinking age to 18 across the board.

I mean... honestly? There are folks who are getting ready to vote in their first ever presidential election. At this point, it looks like they are going to have to choose among voting for the amateur liar, voting for the professional liar [1], or voting their conscience and pulling the lever for somebody who has less than a snowball's chance of winning.

And you want to force them to make that kind of choice sober?

That's just cruel and unusual punishment. 

[1] I will let you argue amongst yourselves as to which is which.
