Fun Debates

After watching three presidential debates and hearing all the talk of elections where ever we go it shouldn't have come as much of a surprise when I overheard the children having their own debate.

Thankfully I had a notepad and pen nearby and I was able to record most of it and decided to share the highlights with you.

Sailor: When I'm elected president I promise to get the people of the United States to smile more. The way I will do that is:

 #1 There will be no more school books.

#2 Everyone can go camping when ever they want to.

#3 I'll teach every one how to sing.

#4 All roads will be paved.

Rosebud:  This is why you shouldn't be president. Why would you be so heartless and take away school books when a lot of children enjoy learning. If you take them away I won't be smiling.

# 2 I don't want to go camping and have to sleep outdoors when I have a perfectly comfortable bed in the house or cook over a campfire when I can use a stove.

#3 I'll help you teach people how to sing. That would be fun.

#4 Paved roads are a good thing but they need to remember to keep fixing the potholes.


  1. This is priceless! I'll listen to debates like that anyday, and forget the politian's, which seldon do more than badmouth their opponent, anyway. Thanks!

  2. That is adorable! I think I'll vote for Rosebud.

  3. Too funny - and I'm so happy you wrote that down! They'll get a kick out of that when they're older (don't forget to date it and say who was running against who). Why am I telling you how to be a mother? I'm sorry. Can you tell I've forgotten to date things and regret it now?? I love hearing what kids have to say about these things - on one blog the lady said her child said when he was President, there would be no slavery and no shots. Crack me up! Why are grown-ups running this country anyway without advisers who are 12 and under?? That's what I'd change. :)

  4. This is so cute...They have it all figured out and did a great job!

  5. I can't decide which one I want to vote for, so I will just sit back and see what happens...

  6. Well, I'm smiling! I can sing, too! I also love to read! Sailor and and sis for Pres and VP ... don't care which is which :-) We'll have to wait til winter is over to check the pot holes, though...

  7. That was the best and it did give me a chuckle. I have a great neice who loves school so she would agree with Rosebud about the school books. Thank you for sharing that great debate.

  8. I like this debate so much better than the ones we had to endure on national TV. :)

  9. Oh, precious! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing! Now, can you weave that into your next book?


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
