    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    My son is still pretty young to know about politics so I dont know if there's any differences. I myself dont care what his political (or even religious affiliation) will be- he is free to choose whatever he wants to believe in. However, he seems to imitate me in everything I do (sleeping only in my boxers, dipping fries in ketchup, etc.) so it remains to be seen...

    We have an old dog that has gone blind, but still knows how to get around the house. When he drains his water bowl, he kicks it across the floor to let us know it's empty - now, his water bowl is stainless steel and the floor is marble, so it's makes one hell of a noise. When we go out to feed the outside cats, he will follow us out the front door and try to get the cat food, which is actually funny to watch the cats do ninja chops (no claws - they actually love him and rub all over him anytime other than feeding time) at his face as he ignores them and keeps sniffing around for the bowls. Some of the older larger cats will move the bowls when he gets close, which is hilarious, as it confuses him and he gets real pissed and starts huffing through his nose in disgust. I swear I can see the cats laughing at him as part of the clan goes all ninja and the others move the bowls around the porch.

    I picture in my head a scene from Cats and Dogs, Siamese ninja cats attacking from the sky with glider rigs. Snickering as they sneak about the house while the dog is wondering what's going on.

    Re: Question For Parents

    I am conservative and wanted my kids to make up their own minds, after all, I started out on the Left then "grew up" and ran to the Right! Fortunately, both my kids are conservative, even though they grew up in poverty. There are some social issues we do disagree on, but that does not cause any arguments or problems. They are thinking adults and that's what I aimed for.

    Re: Question For Parents

    I have shown my kids how to think, not what to think. I want them to come to their own conclusions on everything, not just politics. I just want them to do so based on critical thinking, logic, reason and evidence.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Question For Parents

    No kids so can't answer the poll really. The results seem to be predominantly 'let kids think for themselves'. It would be interesting to see if these results translated over to religion (or lack of it)...
