Out of the mouths of babes

Nice follow-up to yesterday’s post about Dem/GOP control of our elections. If other kids are seeing things like this one, the U.S. may have a future!

“I hope the Libertarians win tonight,” one of our offspring announced.

“Why’s that?” I asked.

“Because I’m a Libertarian,” replied the offspring.

Like you know what a Libertarian is, I thought. You aren’t even old enough to drive. And you definitely aren’t old enough to care about the differences between Republicans and Democrats. And there’s [no] way you know how Libertarians fit into that mix.

“Oh really?” I replied. “Do you know what a Libertarian is?” I mean…neither Christy nor I claim affiliation with the Libertarians. So this announcement was a little surprising.

“Yeah. They believe people and the states should have most of the power and make the decisions. Not the Federal government.”
