In one of the threads in the war on terror section, Psycho claimed that one of his earliest political memories was the change in pledge of allegience to include "Under God" (Ignoring the fact that if all the information he gives us is true his date for remembering this is later than it actually happened and he would have been six years old) Tell me how old were your earliest political memories and what was it of? I think I have a few about the same time. First, I remember President Reagan speaking when the Spaceshuttle exploded when I was five. Don't remember much of what he actually said but I do remember knowing he was a good and decent man there. Second, I remember Presidetn Bush defeating Dukakis in 08. I specifically remember that the media tried to claim Pennsylvania for the Democrats although when the voting was actually counted they had to chance it for President Bush in the morning. This was when i was eight Third, I remember the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Union when i was about nine or so. Also remember at some point of my childhood asking myself why the United states didnt allow more states to be annexed so they can receive the same Constitutional protection we all receive. Oddly enough I later saw that as unfeasable, but pondering it lately Ive concluded that it would be indeed the only real way we can have lasting peace and have a truly international government.
