    Sorry, son, the Earth is only 6,000 years old and fossils are God’s way of testing your faith.

    It’s sad that so many people claim to love dinosaurs, but very few are willing to do actual research about them and learn what they were like in real life.

    Seriously, the dinosaurs we know today are barely anything like the dinosaurs you knew when you were a kid.

    I don’t think it counts if you’re the one pushing your own buttons, Calvin.

    A dinosaur party? Most politicians are dinosaurs.

    in another dinosaur-related debate, Calvin tells his father hates school is because he never gets to learn about dinosaurs even when Calvin himself has read just about every dinosaur book in the library

    The only vote that does not count is the one that is never cast.

    Even if you do not agree with the candidates, or the issues, you need to vote.

    If you can vote, but choose not to, you automatically give up the right to complain about how the election went.

    Well for sure it won’t be the GQP. Anymore, they’re resolutely anti-science and pro-Christianist. Most of them seem to anti-evolution and believe that the Earth is only 6,000 years old or some such. Or maybe Calvin might enjoy a visit to the Creation Museum. It’s displays are about as real as Spaceman Spiff…

    Without the discombulated dinosaur vote, where would elections be today…

    There are probably more senior citizens voting today than the youngins!

    They’re having a fit at the state of this country…

    Many/most republicans believe the Flintstones is true history and dinosaurs coexisted with humans 5,000 years ago (the Creation) but unfortunately missed the Ark 3,500 years ago.

    For what it’s worth, I’m pretty sure even the mighty tyrannosaurus rex would only get one vote.

    One party is fossilized, and the other party are stoners. Pretty much the same thing.

    They’re working on that in Florida, where teaching evolution is the next thing on the education chopping block.

    They do not teach the nonsense of Adam and Eve in government-run schools. Pubic skool kids know that their ancestors were Fred and Wilma.

    I’m with Calvin on this one, and will be loudly posing the same question to this year’s candidates for, um, state auditor (?).

    This is actually really good. Granted, voting based only on support for paleontology is a little strange, but this kid has 1) an interest in scientific research; 2) passion surrounding it; and 3) an instinct for political activism. I would feel very encouraged if I heard young people speaking like this in the real world.

    A lot of people don’t really comprehend the timespan of the age of dinosaurs. As a group, they roamed the Earth for more than 165 million years, far longer than mankind has been around. Also on a timeline, mankind and tyrannosaurus are closer together than stegosaurus and tyrannosaurus.

    Today’s GOP has a problem in that area. It’s the Noah’s Ark question that divides their base.

    The problem with dinosaur politicians is that they keep eating their opponents

    . . . and their constituents.
