46. right you are, high schoolers are closest to draft age and they are
into politics big time. My daughter was an intern at the Dem Office and she had a group of kids that she recruited volunteers. Unfortunately the Bushie kids were just like most of their parents. If you wanted to talk about policy forget it.

Both my daughters,a high school sophomores an 8th grader had kids say "Kerry is a baby-killer". Nice huh? When they answer back that over 100,000 people,including many women and children have been killed in Iraq due to Bush, they don't get it, mostly because they are uninformed.

BUT,kids who weren't into politics or had parents on the fence, were highly persuadable.

Bush should have a meeting with kids between the ages of 12-18 if we want to know what is really going on, they would ask him questions like...

Why are we killing people for oil?
What good have we done for the people of Iraq?

These are the legitimate questions that our press won't ask, and kids wouldn't fall for the line...well, what you have to understand is...
