All I remember from elementary school is "NIXON NIXON HE'S OUR MAN! MCGOVERN BELONGS IN A GARBAGE CAN!" So I'm just going to go to choir practice.
“Deciding the best things for people.”
We had a little talk about taxes, and she was surprised to find that the President and the Congresses can just take your money. “That’s wrong.”
Sigh. Careful. This is civics, not brainwashing.
“No, it’s not wrong. We all agree to pay taxes for things we need. We don’t always agree on how much to pay, or what to spend them on. But if they take too much, then we can’t go to Disneyworld.”
Okay, now it was brainwashing. Her eyes grew wide. “I vote for Obama.”
“He might raise taxes, too.”
She looked bereft: “who else is there then?”
Welcome to the club, child.
