Okay, isn't this brainwashing? As a parent this infuriates me. I mean really, not only is this a type of child labor but it is manipulative since children are not capable of the abstract thinking abilities of adults. If this were encouraging teens (14-18) to get involved fine, but this aims for under 12.

I really dislike recruiting kids into politics in this manner. If the kids are interested, let them ask, if they want to play a role, then let the parents decide. But to ACTIVELY try to recruit kids...sounds a little icky.

Hitler Youth anyone?

Left wing movements always try to go after the “kids” and it’s always about the “youth” and when they’re policies get implemented you get a generation of brain washed morons. It’s happening in Africa. It happened with Pol Pot. It happened with Hitler. They always go for the kids. And look what happens. Children cannot handle the sensitive environment of politics and to recruit them is cowardly, manipulative and dangerous.

Remember the little girl who spoke at the Democrat convention as the leader of “Kids for Kerry” last time? As she spoke, she scolded Cheney for saying a bad word, and the crowd loved it!

I can’t wait to hear the “Kids for Obama” rep. speak at the convention.

Some Democrats / liberals / radicals tend to act like children. So it makes sense to them that children have a prominent place in their campaigns.

I don’t know how many times I’ve had children come home from school telling me to vote for yet another tax increase in order to fund the school system otherwise Mr. or Mrs. so-and-so will loooooooose their job, our schools will lose their accreditation and they’ll never ever get into college. It’s a life or death crisis every time. Yawn.

Next they’ll be suggesting to childs that it’s their duty to report their parents to the authorities for not recycling or using incandescent bulbs or keeping it too warm in winter or too cold in summer. The list can go on and on......

From the web site;

“Do you feel like you want to get involved in the political process but you don’t know how? Do you feel like there’s something important coming up in the Presidential elections? Get involved in KIDS FOR OBAMA! Studies have shown that kids can affect their parents and their siblings’ opinions and even change the opinions of older family members . . . including those of voting age. Are you still with me? Great, Let’s get started!”

Shameless. Just shameless.

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.

Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever.

There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.

They have never worked. They are cared for by the government much of the day. They don't pay taxes. Anything they need or want is given to them.

It sounds like children would make excellend democrats.

I remember in elementary school being indoctrinated into global warming beliefs. I remember being so far into the fascist lie that I wanted all the humans on Earth to die and let the animals and trees live in peace. That was way back in 5th grade. Once I opened my eyes and saw evidence to the contrary, I was quickly converted away from that movement, a fate many of my comrades never escaped.

Sadly, the parents who back Obama, will encourage this activity to the hilt. Since, as you say, children under 12
cannot have the knowledge to form their own opinions, most of them will do what their parents instruct them to do. For the most part, that is as it should be, provided the parents, themselves, have the knowledge to form sensible opinions. :) -— :(

I’m pretty sure that the fact that kids are being fed propaganda in public schools is coincidental with the fact that democrats want massive increases in school funding. Hmmmmm....

How old are you? You can't be that old as the indoctrination on global warming has been fairly recent. Of course I realize that "recent" is a relative term.

Take an adult (voting age) to the polls on Election Day and encourage them to vote for you, by voting for Senator Obama.

WTH? Isn't that illegal? That aside, they make it sound so easy. Drive Mommy or Daddy down to the polling place and have them vote for BO for you. Just like you'd have them sign you up for youth soccer. Forget that Mommy and Daddy actually have to be registered. Or that kids can't drive. Or that Mommy and Daddy have to know where their precinct is. If something goes wrong, you can always scream you're being disenfranchised!

Draw a picture of Senator Barack Obama or “an expression of Democracy”. For example, the Senator sitting in the White House or working on Capitol. Hill. You can send your drawing to the Obama for America Campaign Headquarters in Chicago and it will be posted for the Senator to see.

I’m 19. Back then from what I remember it was mostly indoctrination about polluting the ocean and land fills and such, but they snuck some things in about polar bears and ice caps.

For me a lot of this started with the first "Earth Day" in 1970. Of course growing up in the Buffalo, NY area I also got to see Love Canal and how polluted Lake Erie was at the time... so conservation seemed to make some good sense. I will also say that over my lifetime, the environment really has been much improved and is cleaner than it used to be so it's quite ridiculous to hear people prattling on about the end of the world planet.

...coincidental with the fact that democrats want massive increases in school funding.

Unrepentent terrorist, Bill Ayers, is the Board Chairman of the nonprofit Woods Fund of Chicago and Obama was a Board member. Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund's website.

The Woods Fund focused on welfare reform, affordable housing, the quality of public schools, race and class disparities in the juvenile justice system, and tax policy as a tool in reducing poverty. The Fund supported the concept of an expanding welfare state allocating ever-increasing amounts of money to the public school system, and the redistribution of wealth via taxes.

Don’t they see that what they are supporting is pure fascism? These socialist policies coupled with a caring big brother government is the LAST thing we need to be telling our children. They should be learning English skills, math, science, history, and a least a course in the Constitution. Instead we have global warming indoctrination and how to put condoms on cucumbers.

What is the spending level contribution that kids can spend in an election?

http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/kidskit

Step 2: Advertising
This part is key. For the Chicago kickoff of Kids for Obama, we posted invitations all over town; grocery stores, coffee shops, and book stores; wherever you can find a public bulletin board. Be sure to ask permission from the store manager.

THEY CALL IT ADVERTISING. What does the FEC say about this contribution by minors?

Isn’t there a U.S. law on Internet use that makes a person under 16 or so have a parent affirm that the minor can use the web page or web blog if it is primarily aimed at kids?

I know if one goes to McDonald’s kid activity web page, or a similar page, there is a button for parental approval.

How come NoBama’s page can seduce kids or is campaign speech totally unregulated (Finegold-McCain says not)?

clicked on my site, haha, they have the wrong polling hours

sure, send all the obama voters to the polls at the wrong time, i’d go for that :)

and i really like this: Take an adult (voting age) to the polls on Election Day and encourage them to vote for you, by voting for Senator Obama.

As people come into the Party, take down their name for a myBO page. A myBO page is a place where kids and people of all ages can exchange ideas on the Obama campaign. Invite your guests to sign up for a myBO page. Be sure to ask parents for permission. It’s a great way to stay involved after your event is over. Enjoy yourself!

This will go on your permanent record and one day you can look back on your recruiting efforts as Senator Byrd does of his own recruiting.

They should be learning the basics (reading, writing, arithmetic) and the founding principles of self-reliance, and self-determination. Freedom to choose and freedom to provide for yourself (and reap the rewards of your productive labor).

If our government has been "rotten" up to this point, how in one administration, with a proposed expansion of government powers, are they going to be able to turn the helm of government from being the problem to being the solution? Is a political purge coming?

Or will all complaints about the failures to solve the problems "go away" as the Iranian nutjob also makes his problems "go away"? Problems remain just no one ever talks about them...
