  •  To illustrate. I was 7 years old in 1976. (6+ / 0-)

    My dad always told us bedtime stories (which he made up himself and they were GOOD--ask bastrop) and he came back from voting after his long commute on the train. He was still in his business suit and looked tired. I asked him "Did you vote for President Ford or for Governor Carter?" You know what he told me?

    "It's none of your business".

    Then, he told me WHY it was none of my seven year old business, or my mother's business, or my grandmother's business, or anyone's business. He gave us a civics lesson as a bedtime story that night. I will never forget it.

    At seven years old, my Daddy made it clear that a woman's or a man's vote was only their own business.

    He voted for Carter, I later found out.
