    Why is Mommy a Democrat?

    I found out about this book from Eugene Rant. It's a propaganda book designed to teach young kids about the evils of Republicans, and how wonderful and kind Democrats are. Touching. Really. As if children don't get enough of that from their school-teachers. Anyhow, click here to see the original sample pages. I've made the corrections below.

    This book does, actually, say something very important about parenting and politics. Much of my family is Democratic. Many of my friends are surprised that I am a Republican. But, the reason I am a Republican is specifically because of my Father (an independent). I grew up seeing his actions, and learning from his behavior. From this I learned invaluable lessons, like personal responsibility, personal accountability, self-reliance, the importance of education and educating yourself, striving for excellence, among other things. When my Dad made child-support payments, he paid extra - not as a handout, rather taking care of his children. Personal responsibility. Today, I am proud to be a member of the GOP precisely because it is testament to the lessons I learned from my Father.

    Very Good! I actually purchased a copy and can't wait to get it. After my evil cronies and I have a good snicker, I'll share it with you.

    Your remarks and captions were right on the mark.

    My sister lives in San Fran and is as liberal as they come.

    I am enclosing an article concerning school indoctrination.
