 Im campaining for president. And I look good. :) My kids are to youn to teach the proccess of it. In the future we will do somethin fun I am sure. Like maybe actually run for president in our own home setup. Haha, maybe let them bring up serious household issues and their stance on it. Like the amount of healthy food served in a day. Or dad leaving the toilet seat up. and how they are oin to solve the issue. But we have quite a few years before we get into that. But my kids are close enough in age that when we do that type of thing, they could most likely all do it together.

We'll be outta here by the time it happens.

My kids know all they need to know about American elections: they're rigged and your only real choice is do you want the puppet on the left or the puppet on the right.

I do teach the history of how it got to this point and why.

I wouldn't say campaigning.  We are leaning towards Ron Paul, but I haven't researched enough to say for sure.  Not that he has a chance, but you know!  LOL  I'm still behind Obama and will be as long as he is in office.  

We will probably incorporate it next year when the elections are really going on, but not for now.

 Not really campaigning but political discussions happen almost daily in our house with my teen & sometimes with my 8y/o. I think it is important to let them know about what is going on so that as they grow they will be ready for there time to step up & have a voice too.
