Sorry, but you all sound absurd.

I don't like the results it gets, but not letting an 18 year old vote is ethically wrong. Nothing in particular about the age 18, but once we decide on an age of majority, that is the age of majority, and that means the voting age.

The reasoning behind wanting to raise the voting age, amongst most of us, is to protect individual freedoms, in this case financial freedom. However, you can't take away individual freedom in the name of individual freedom.
