Tomorrow is election day here in the good old US of A. I know who I am voting for, and no I’m not going to tell you, but just in case you aren’t educated on the issues that are important I thought I would help you out. You all know that I don’t do politics here, but electing a President is kind of a big deal and I want to make sure you all are up to speed on the topics that matter. When trying to decide exactly what topics I should address, I knew I needed to take it to the people. I needed to ask those who are here for the long haul, those who this election will have a huge impact on. After some serious thinking I knew just where I needed to go. I went to Kindergarten.
I couldn’t think of a more honest group to poll, so I asked them one simple question and here are some of my favorite responses, complete with illustrations:
What a wonderful idea! It doesn’t matter what party you belong to, this is one platform I can get on board with. Time to end all the name calling and hatred and just “be kind”. How did five year olds get to be so smart?
Oh boy, how would you narrow it down? So many options, so many things that need to be done.
I would elect this kid in a heartbeat. Wouldn’t it be great if our politicians actually communicated openly and honestly with the people that elected them? These kids get it I tell you.
Yet the thought of these five and six year olds wanting to help gives you hope for the future!
I love this idea! When all else fails…EAT! Give yourself brain food and support the local economy all at once. Not to mention that so many problems seemed to be easier to solve over a nice plate of spaghetti or a nice big steak. Seems like something that a President should consider doing on a regular basis.
Chocolate chip, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin. Well, maybe not the oatmeal raisin, but cookies are good. Maybe these kids are on to something. Let’s sit down over some cookies and milk and get something done!
At the end of the day, what really matters is to VOTE. Take some inspiration from these kids and really think about what is important to you. While it may not be handing out cookies, saving animals, or how to save the world, we all need to really search inside ourselves. Educate yourself on the issues that matter to you and make an informed decision based on your own beliefs. We can all make a difference, it doesn’t matter if you are Republican, Democrat, or Unaffiliated. If you don’t vote you don’t let your voice be heard, so if you haven’t done so already be sure to VOTE!!
