 Brayden: Mommy, what’s the difference between a republican and a democrat?

Mommy: Well, that’s a hard one to answer.  But basically they believe different things about how government should be run.

Brayden: What am I?

Mommy: You don’t claim a party now. You don’t need to decide that yet.  You can’t even vote until you are 18-year-old. But you can choose whatever you like when the time comes.

Then he proceeded to ask what each of his grandma’s were and then he asked me. Of course I told him I was a republican. Then he asked if there are any other political parties and I explained that to him. A few minutes passed after this and then he said.

Brayden: I think my destiny is to be a democrat.
