Kids Even Got It Figured Out!

My nine year old son already has enough common sense to vote in a presidential election.  Here is his journal entry from school yesterday:

“What makes a great president is a president that cares for us unlike Obama would ’cause if he dosen’t care about (unborn) babies he wouldn’t care about us.  McCain is a good president.”

Yep, that about sums it up.

We’re studying the electoral process right now, as is only appropriate for this day and season.  We are having elections soon between two candidates from our homeschool group.  They are filming their campaign ads tomorrow.  Should be highly entertaining.  One of the slogans is “Vote Blond Not Brown.”  I suggested that this might not be a wise idea…. but what do I know?  The kids also still have to make ballots, the ballot box and the voting booth.  When all voting is completed next week, in turn they will be drawing the electoral votes out of a hat.  So we really won’t know who has won until the end…. just like the REAL election. 

Do your duty.  VOTE!

    My oldest has tied the economy and possible loss of tax dollars to the government as directly impacting his life (birthday and Christmas) . No doubt who he’s pulling for.

    Kids are great. James wonders how you can vote for a candidate that goes against your Biblical values. Plain and simple. This was with no prompting of mine nor Richards. God speaks even to the youngest of voters. They are our future. :)

    Blond not brown?? Sounds like a slogan Hitler might use.

  4. rixgal Says:

    Yeah, I tried to discourage the blond comment, but then the other candidate starting using “Vote Brown NOT Blond.” So it was a lose-lose situation.

    probably good to not interfere in a racist battle between children :P
