There are many people who love to argue about politics.  No matter what country the disagreements exist.  The problem is that it begins at an early age.  When there are elections in elementary school that is when the students learn first hand about politics.  Of course they have heard their parents and may be partial to one party or another.  Yet, once running for an office in school everything changes.  Some of the children promise no homework, pizza everyday for lunch, longer recess, etc.  None of it means a thing.  That child may be elected but once their promises aren’t kept, they will be disliked.  The other students will not accept that it was the teachers’ or principal’s fault. The kids that are conservative do not win the first time, but they are surely in the running for the second election.  There is a show in “The Brady Bunch” where both Marsha and Greg were nominated as class president.  Naturally they argued and fought.  The dad didn’t allow either one to make unrealistic promises.  They even had a practise session with the whole family.  When each child gave their speech, their biological siblings were unkind to the child that is a step.  Both parents were furious.  They continued to bicker until the day before the election.  Greg had his friends working for him.  Marsha overheard his pals tell him the sure way to win the election was to start a nasty rumor about his sister.  Greg absolutely refused and fired both his friends on the spot. He told them he would never be involved with dirty politics.  He did not know that Marsha had heard the conversation.  The next day in the assembly Marsha asked the principal if she could make an announcement.  She resigned from running for office and asked everyone to vote for her brother.  In the Good Gus series there were no politics.  Gus was the sheriff and Ross was the judge.
