Third Pary Voting Disallowed At Mock Election

My son's middle school is having this mock election for the POTUS. The students were told they could only vote the (d) and (r). My son asks why there are not any third party choices and this stupid woman tells him that it would be a wasted vote because third parties never win.

He is going to ask his teacher tomorrow if he can write-in Ron Paul. LOL.

You should call the mainstream media sources in your area and let them know that the public education system is a corrupting influence.

Goofed up

:(

I hope he gets to make a stand

It's important to claim some of your identity back while in middle school, even to the detriment of grades. I consider myself a career grade grubber, but I took 8th grade off (basically spaced out and only studied what I wanted to). It was important for me to keep my perspective that grade grubbing was me playing within the system, not me. If he looses grades over it, I hope your RP meet-up throws him a party.

Defend Liberty!

Call all the class-mates

You should have him call all his classmates tonight and get them all to write-in Ron Paul :) whether the teacher says they can or not :)

I think

I will do just that! : )
