Insightful political commentary -- by a child
Election Day. I decided to teach my 4-year old daughter about government, the democratic process, and the election. So we had a long talk about it, and then I took her to the polls so she could watch people exercize their power under the democratic system.
She sat there for a while, quietly observing. People were lining up for the voting booth. Voter walks in, curtains close, curtains open, voter walks out, voter walks in, curtains close, custains open, voter walks out.
After quite a while she had seen enough. Let's go home.
"So, what did you learn today?", I asked. "Elections are like a puppet show."
Sometimes kids have the deepest insight into the political process.
