I think that in today's society in America adults do wait to long to treat teenagers like adults. Here are some pros and cons of having Americans have full rights and responsibilities at the age of 15 are. Pros are that they would have a say in the person that they would want to lead our country. They would take more responsibility sooner. They'd be able to have a say of what is right for their country. They would become more educated about the world in an adult way. Cons are that some teenagers wouldn't be able to keep up with everything that is going on. Some teenagers could misuse the rights of adulthood. They could become overwhelmed with responsibilities. School and working for a living could be hard for them. Those are some pros and cons of having full rights and responsibilities of adults at the age of 18.
One major event in history was the Revolutionary War. What might have happened if the Americans didn't win the Revolutionary War? According to the article, What if the British had won the Revolutionary War is we would all be under British rule. There would probably even be more taxation. We would still be ruled by the King of England who is far away.
