So we live in rural America, in a super-conservative area. I am a social liberal. I can cloak well, as can DH.
So today, we get a Christmas card machine-signed by the Obamas. We show this to our 9 year old and boy, oh, boy is she IMPRESSED. As in her jaw is wide open and she thinks that we are the bomb to get a card from the White House. I point out that we are probably the only people in the county to get one of these. DH starts laughing. The girl asks "Why?"
I'm trying to explain liberal versus conservative political philosophies and failing miserably.
So she asks "Because people around here don't believe in democracy?"
Oh, kids sometimes nail it without even meaning to do so.
