Goppy’s confused. Goppy’s been taught all his young life that you have to work for what you get. It adds value and importance to the item you are trying to achieve. Like the time Goppy had to clean yards for 5 straight Saturdays in order to save money for the new skateboard he wanted. He missed a soccer game, 2 birthday parties and worked in the rain just so he could earn money. But guess what? He takes better care of that skateboard than he does any other “wheels” that he owns.
But back to the point. Goppy heard on the news the other day that our President won the Nobel Peace Prize. He won it basically for the “vision of unity” he has for this world. Now no disrespect to our President, but Goppy thinks President Obama needs to show what he has done to deserve this award. Stand up for America, Mr. President.
By the way, Libby thinks its great — any prize that has the word “peace” in it, she’s all for! No matter who wins it!
Gather your children. It’s time for the talk. You know the one. The talk that most parents put off to the early teen years. The same talk that we, as parents, don’t know how to articulate in a way that our kids fully understand. A stuttering explanation of what “could happen” is what guides the conversation rather than what prevents the dreaded results.
But talking to your children about conservatism doesn’t have to be this way. And it’s time we take responsibility for our children’s future politically. Join the movement to expose our children to the principles of conservatism at an early age rather than wait for schools and television to shape their thinking. America’s future leaders are in our elementary schools now. They’re playing in our backyards and eating from our tables. We put them to bed each night. And we are responsible for guiding our children in the ways in which we think they should go.
Why would we not make every effort to teach our children self-responsibility, fiscal responsibility, capitalism, and all the other components of conservatism? It’s time we raise our kids to be conservative and it’s time we bring the Republican party back to what it’s supposed to be.
Goppy’s here to help.
