The Drinking Age Is Past Its Prime

1) My first foray into politics came in the summer of 1979 when I was 18. I wrote a letter to my state representative in NJ asking that the drinking age not be raised from 18 to 21.
2) A 19-year-old can help evacuate an embassy as a member of a Navy SEAL platoon, but cannot drink a beer legally.
3) When Jesus turned water into wine – John 2:9-11 – it is quite possible that He also served it to people under 21.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
