Charles Parker: A 10-Year-Old's Point-of-View


The other night, my politically astute 10-year-old watched the Mitt Romney rally on the internet.  He then decided to write an article about it.  Since he "gets" it - I decided to give him some airtime.  Props to all the teachers he has had who have taught him to write with purpose and voice.  Please enjoy:


"In Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, the crowd chanted 'Four more weeks!' when Mitt Romney explained how at Obama rallies people chanted 'Four more years.' With him he had Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey and Senator Rob Portman of Ohio. 

Christie said that at the Democratic National Convention a speaker said that the government owns us. He also mentioned that the Constitution doesn’t say 'We the government,' it says 'We the people' because of President Obama wanting a bigger government. 

Then came the man the 10,000 people in the crowd wanted to hear. Mitt Romney said 47,000,000 are on food stamps and that’s bigger than Ohio. Is borrowing billions wrong? Mitt thinks it is. 

A reason why he will repeal and replace Obamacare is that it will cost $2,500 on families. To make sure our military is second to none, Mitt said we need a balanced budget and he promised that he will have one.

Someone in the front row shouted, 'What jobs plan?' about Obama when Mitt was talking about how he will create more new jobs.  Mitt won't raise taxes on small business, he will champion small business.

Mitt thinks Obama's 'Forward' message means 'Forewarn!'  He said that America can't afford four more years of Obama in office.

At the end of the speech, Mitt said the stake of America is in our hands.  So find someone that voted for Obama and tell them this story.

You know who the right choice is.  It is four more weeks until the election.  Join us as we believe in America and vote for Mitt Romney."

Good job, son.  Good job...

  1. Thankfully your son cannot vote in the next few elections. He doesn't "get" anything, and his little rambling here proves it.

  2. Don't listen to this person who probably doesn't have any children and can care less about what happens in the future....as usual it's only what they can collect off the government now. Kudos to you kid! Your on the right track....who know...you could be president one day!

  3. You know, I am very concerned about this essay written by 10 year-old. It has been quite a while since I was 10 years old, but I remember being 10, and I have raised a couple of kids who went through the 10 year-old experience, and I have been around many 10 year-old children. One thing about those 10 year-old children: they are usually VERY compassionate, and would be THRILLED to know that their friends and classmates whose families are experiencing financial difficulty were not starving. I would say an overwhelming percentage would be HAPPY and GRATEFUL that in this country there exists such social service programs that allow families to use food stamps to feed their children. MOST 10 year-olds wouldn't care if the number of families receiving food stamps was 47 or 47,000,000...they would just care that their friends...kids...people...get to eat.
    Or perhaps I should say that MOST 10 year-olds with parents who refrain from spouting off sound bites for the Republican party would care about that? Yeah, that's what I SHOULD say.
