Oh yay! Oh yay! Oh yay!
Gene just said "Mom? I think that Republicans are kinda stupid... I mean they think that when the upper class are rich then the economy does better, well... that doesn't really make sense". Then he went on to argue his point... something to do with World War II, but frankly I was too busy trying not to jump up and down clapping.... It must be said that up until now, this boy's political direction was unclear. (THE WAY IT SHOULD BE FOR ANY FIRST TIME VOTER WHO IS ENCOURAGED TO THINK FOR THEMSELVES AND EXAMINE THE NEWS CAREFULLY.) It should be mentioned that there is a new Current World Problems teacher at our school who has these kids thinking politically, globally and critically like never before.
