    But consider the New York Times best-seller “Duck for President” by Doreen Cronin. It looks like a feel-good story of an ordinary water fowl with semi-ordinary chores winning an election to take over the farm. Duck uses his new post as a launching pad to get elected governor and then chief executive of the United States before realizing the job ain’t all it’s quacked up to be.

    Duck’s climb wasn’t without controversy. In his first election on the farm, Duck instituted some strict voter registration guidelines. Under protest from the mice, Duck relented and removed the height requirement. But potential voters were still required to show valid identification. Duck’s subsequent victory likely was met with a lawsuit from Farmer Brown and Democrats claiming voter suppression, given that the fight over voter identification is an age-old battle between the two parties that rages on today.

    Interesting reading...........

    Sarg,

    If you kids and/or grandkids are old enough to understand politics give them The Aminal Farm to read. I did it with my kids and my oldest grandson. It makes a difference when they read the truth. The books by C.S. lewis are also a good read for the kids. There are ways to counter the leftist slop out there.
