The Required Age to Become President sign now

Age should not measure maturity level.

I believe that the age limit required to become president should be lowered.
Perhaps to 21, an age we are all familiar with. 18 is a bit young, just starting out as an adult. But once you turn 21, you have more experience with adulthood and all the other rights that you have to wait three years for. Of course, if they aren't a good candidate, they won't be chosen by the people. 21 year olds can be trusted with the responsibilities of driving, owning a home, driving, working, voting and others, but they cannot run and campaign for their own beliefs, instead choosing the opinion of an older person who suits their views best?

If our current President is dubbed as competent, then why can't any other legal adult be? From my standpoint, I believe that he has made a few wrong decisions, and I think I, a lowly, humble underaged teenager, would be able to make choices with the same ability, or better. If anyone that age is allowed to vote or enter the army, to defend their own country with their own lives, they should be able to run it, too. It takes just as much courage to enter a battlefield as it takes to sit in a cozy office and make decisions for the whole country. If they have what it takes to give their lives, they can have enough responsibility to know when to put someone else's life on the line.

I believe that anyone can be a good president if they have certain qualities; being able to listen, judging situations fairly, and seeing things from other people's eyes. With those, anyone with a reasonable amount of intelligence could solve most of our problems.

It seems that with every generation, the children are more involved with technology and politics. Maybe we can use this to our advantage, and usher in a new age with fresh new ideas.
