A child’s curiosity and natural desire to learn are like a tiny flame, easily extinguished unless it’s protected and given fuel. This book will help you as a parent both protect that flame of curiosity and supply it with the fuel necessary to make it burn bright throughout your child’s life. Let’s ignite our children’s natural love of learning!
Over at By Common Consent there is a post suggesting that we not vote Republican for the midterm elections.
The author of the post makes a distinction between issue/ideological voting and approval voting. I agree with the author that it’s high time we use the approval voting method and root out the corruption and power-hungry career politicians who have enjoyed the comfort and dominion of their office for too long.
One also then must entertain the question of throwing away one’s vote. If I don’t vote Republican, who cares? I’m in Utah. The GOP will more than likely take sweeps. In the words of Teddy Roosevelt, “A vote is like a rifle; its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.” I’m not throwing away my vote. I’ll be making a stand—personal, political, and ideological. Whether those I vote for win or not, I will be able to answer my Maker and my own conscience knowing that I took a stand. I’ll be voting for those who support the Constitution of this country.
