Teacher tells student - "You only have 2 choices" UPDATE

I was driving in the car with my daughter, she's in 1st grade and she heard a political ad on the radio, then she told me she had voted in her class.

I immediately became interested..

Me - "Oh you guys did a vote in your class?"
Daughter - "Yeah, I told my teacher I didn't want Mitt Romney or Barack Obama"
Me - " Wow, you really said that? What did she say?"
Daughter - "She said, well those are the only ones you can vote for."
Me - "What? That's not true.. what did you say to her?"
Daughter - "I told her that Im not gonna vote for them, I'll make a little voting place in my room where only people that want to vote for Ron Paul can go there and vote"
Me - "Nice Kiddo"

High Fives immediately ensued


I went online and pulled up a sample ballot..
I showed her where you vote for president..

O Barack Obama / Joe Biden
O Mitt Romney / Paul Ryan
O Gary Johnson / James P. Gray
O Write In ________________

I said "see.. Gary Johnson, there's another choice right there, and if you don't like those three choices, you can write Ron Paul right there on that line"
She said "Yeah, let me do it"
I said "Well it's just an image you can't click on it, but maybe we'll print it up and you can fill it in"

I'm thinking about putting it in her folder all filled out to take to her class so her teacher can learn something

That is Awesome

It's so good to be able to think for ourselves so we do not reduce ourselves to others limitations :^)
Your daughter is awesome!

Thanks for the comments guys

I've been showing her what people are saying about her story..
It's been very encouraging for her


A teacher is a parasite, what do you expect.


That's so awesome!

Well done! It takes courage to counter an authority figure. Good for her to refuse to buy into the falsehood of "you only have two choices" and for creating her own booth to vote for Ron Paul ^_^ It reading about things like this that support my optimistic view of the future.

Send that young lady to the Mises Institue!

We are winning and I'm hopeful that I will see my country right itself with our help very soon but we need to teach the youth and get them involved if it's ever going to last.

Great job!

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Just watched this documentary

last night: The War on Kids : http://www.thewaronkids.com/

Interesting...especially the second half regarding the drugs that are sanctioned to lobotomize our youth.

The BIGGEST deficit today (IMO) is parental involvement...you done good with your little one.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Great story. These are the future Americans we need to raise up. The young people are catching on to the idea of liberty faster than any other demographic.
