Several local second graders have all the answers to Racine's problems. The following are a sampling of their proposals, if they were mayor of Racine.
"If I was mayor, I would take all the smokes away from the stores and say no more smoking."
"If I was the mayor, I would make sure the gas prices were low..."
"If I were mayor, I would help people with problems and give free ice cream. Chuck E. Cheese will be free, and no smoking or you are going to jail."
"I would ban people from smoking in Racine. I don't want anyone to die if I was mayor. I want to take care of people."
Now my point here is not to poke fun at second graders. Rather, it is to poke fun at grown up liberals, if there is such a thing, because their political philosophy hasn't matured from the well intentioned, utopian thinking common among children. No wonder liberals keep wanting to lower the voting age.
