I remember hearing about how Jimmie Carter won the election against Gerald Ford.

I remember thinking, "Well, Voni, how does it feel to have a new president?" It didn’t feel any different. (Which is, I think, the secret of the American Constitution.)

I also remember thinking, "Well, at least we’ll have a government who cares about kids." Silly me. As a conservative Christian homeschooler, I now recognize that liberal lie for what it is: just because conservatives didn’t want a Department of Education didn’t mean they hated kids. Or education. It means they disagreed about the best way to educate kids. We’re still discussing those same educational issues today.
