AP Goverment

My Advanced Placement Government Students did an exercise today in forming "political parties".

The class of twenty split 17 to three into two parties, a mammoth vaguely liberal socialist entity I titled "The Pan Liberal Union and the minority conservative party which jokingly titled themselves "Backwards".

When I asked the Backwards party how they would compete in the election with such an overwhelming majority lined up against them.

They responded of their classmates "Oh they're educated ; they're not our political base."

I nearly choked laughing.
