I have avoided addressing politics on this blog in the past; I don’t really think this is the place for those kinds of discussions. But I do try to encourage Avey to be an active citizen, and she recently expressed her stance to us:
You should have seen her during the special on health care the other day – she kept throwing things at the TV. There are a couple of things she and I just don’t agree on, though. I believe in small government, and Avey thinks that the ones in power should clothe, feed, and bathe those whom they govern. She’s actually on the radical side, insisting that the ruling body even change the citizens’ diapers and do their hair really cute every morning.
Well, I guess that’s what is greatest about the U.S.A. – everybody is free to express their ideas.
