  1. Under the age of 18 and want to VOTE for Americas political future ? Under the age of 18 and want to join the military to KILL people you have no quarrel with, put your life on the line to DIE and / or have limbs blown off ? GROOVY ! Want to smoke a Marlboro, or a Winston or a Kool, you know, like your parents, grandparents ? NO !! your too young and STUPID to make an informed decision, so We are going to make it for you because WE know better.
    And to you parents who actually VOTED to have this law implemented, HOW does it feel to be a failure as a parent that you feel you must give the STATE control over your children because YOU have no influence over them. If your children do not know right from wrong, you have failed.
