Would the President/Congress raise the adult age if thousands of angry teens marched in cities demanding everything be 21?

So they could fight in school and not be punished, as well as do everything else known to man? If thousands and thousands of youth under 21 demanded their rights to be treated as the children laws regarding privileges say they are would the president and or congress do it?

    Never, as the military needs younger recruits. Age of majority used to be older until it was realized that it's harder to train older soldiers. People that age are less malleable.

    The age of majority is set by the state not the federal government. If you wish to alter it, contact your governor and/or state legislator.

    We cant and we wont, we need soldiers at 18 and they need to sign their life away.
