Party-training our children: Weepublican or DemoQuat?

CNN, "The Most Trusted Name In News", has a very good story about how parents are "Party-training" their kids with shirts like Weepublican or DemoQuat.

So this really does beg the question, are we training our kids into what we want them to believe instead of letting them go out and choose for their own self? Are our children going to be nothing more then political lemmings when they grow up?

Now I think the two shirts (Weepublican and DemoQuat) are really in fun and I do not really have a problem with them. What I do have a problem is with shirts like, "Mommy and Me for Hillary" or "Romney is my Homeboy". Those shirts are what really piss me off as I doubt that any child under the age of 4 or 5 knows who any of these people really are. Even if the child knows who they are, I really doubt they have an view of their own that does not relfect what their parents think.

I have many issues with our current political system and the way that its setup and ran, but that is a whole other entry that I really do not feel like getting into right now. But, I must say that I would rather see our kids growing up to make their own decisions about who they think is the best candidate for the job and not who their parents think the beset candidate for the job it.

As for me, I started off "republican". I think I might have even voted for bush at one point in my life. lol. When I moved and had to change my voter registration, I did change my party from republican to democrat. Really, I think of my self as an independent cus I have views from both sides and do not just follow one party.

Also, just for the record, I like the Weepublican shirt better. LOL.
I think its done better and looks so much cuter then the DemoQuat shirt.
