My youngest is not old enough to vote yet but my oldest is. (His first ballot cast was for Scott Brown).
He asked me if government would just raise other taxes if Question 3 is passed, so I gave him the easiest explanation I could give, government is like his younger brother. To wit:
- Me: “If you give your brother $20 how much of it will he spend?”
- Oldest: “$20”
- Me: “If you give your brother $10 how much of it will he spend?”
- Oldest: “$10”
- Me: “So if you don’t want your brother to blow his money, do you give him a $20 or a $10?”
- Oldest: I guess I’ll vote “Yes” on question 3.
It’s all in the presentation
