All I Really Need to Know About Voting for Kerry I Learned in Kindergarten.

ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW about how to tell when people are honest or not, whether mom would want us to hang out with them, and whom to vote for I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the tax bracket, but there in the playground at school. These are the things I learned:

Share the wealth, and lunch.

Make a level sandbox for everyone to play in.

Don't hit people, or bomb them.

Put things voter registrations back where you found them.

Invite people to play; don’t exclude them because they’re not like you

If you break it you bought it.

Don’t lie if you made a mistake… you’re better off telling the truth

Clean up your own mess, whether military, environmental, or economic.

Don't take countries or resources that aren't yours.

Heinz ketchup is good for you.

Live a balanced life - windsurf some and think some and bike and hunt and tell corny jokes every day some.

Get a $150 haircut every afternoon.

Be courageous. If you make a mistake, come back home and correct it.

When you go out into the world, watch out for terrorists and stick together.

Friends are important. Don’t get rid of them just because they don’t agree with you.

God is good to have faith in but he won’t do your homework.

Be nice to people, don’t call them names, especially when the name aren’t true.

Goldfish and hamsters and Vietnamese and even Iraqis - they all can die.

So can Americans.

Have respect for life: bombs and bullets kill people, not countries.

And then remember the book My Pet Goat and the most important word you learned about George W. Bush - the biggest word of all - INCOMPETENT.

Everything you need to know to vote for Kerry is in there somewhere:
The Golden Rule and respect and honestey and basic ethical behavior, how to deal with liars, and more.

Take this with you on the road to the Presidency and show America what it can be once again.
