Of course kids favor Kerry, they got to school, where the NEA teaches them about the usurper in the White House and how Kerry will save the day.

They're not allowed to think otherwise....would YOU wanna get left back in kindergarten?

When I was in... third grade, I think, (it was 1970 or whenever Nixon was running against McGovern, I'm too tired to figure it out -- but I was a year younger than everyone else in my class because my parents taught me to read when I was four years old) we had a pretend presidential election, all part of an effort to teach us sproglings all about democracy and all that. I voted for Nixon.

I attended Santa Cruz High School, graduating in 1989, the kids there were all full-out liberals, demanding the 'right' to vote pre-18. The teachers, of course, were right behind them, realizing that their program was working and the kids were pot-smoking carbon copies (dittos back then) of themselves. *Children* should nor more be allowed to vote than they should be allowed to have sex, drink or drive cars... of course the libs want to give them all that too.

Andrea told my story. When I was in third grade, which was 1980, we had a pretend election, but I voted for Carter. Carter!! Jeez.
