A Libertarian Story

A first grade teacher is explaining to her class that she is a Democrat and how nice it is that we have a Democrat president in office. She asks her students to raise their hands if they, too, are Democrats and support Barack Obama.

Everyone in class raises their hands except one little boy.

“Tommy,” says the teacher with surprise, “why didn’t you raise your hand?”

“Because I’m not a Democrat,” says Tommy.

“Well, what are you?” asks the teacher.

“I’m a Libertarian and proud of it,” replies the little boy.

The teacher cannot believe her ears. “My goodness, Tommy, why are you a Libertarian?” she asks.

“Well, my Mommy and Daddy are Libertarians, so I’m a Libertarian, too.”

“Well,” says the teacher in an annoyed tone, “that’s no reason for you to be a Libertarian. You don’t always have to be like your parents. What if your momma was a criminal and your papa was a criminal, too, what would you be then?”

Tommy smiled. “Then we’d all be Democrats.”
