Kids can't work on their parents farms if Obama gets his way.

More reason for people to get behind Romney so we can make Obama a one term president.

I've had enough of liberals in office. Is there another option?

Yes. Mitt Romney is a champion of small, minimally intrusive government.

hmm, guess this may be an excuse to hire illegals since the government see's fit to "protect" the children...This is just a ploy to get control of the food suppy, I remember earning a decent wage hauling hay in the summer, as a matter of fact the farmers depended on youths to get hay put away before any kind of rains hit...

I wouldn't. They sure like hemming up employers and letting the "employees" flee.

my Dad put me on a John Deere model A tractor when I was 8 years old, I had already driven it enough to be able to go to the field and do some tractor driving, It wasn't like I was the exception, it was just the normal thing in the 1950's every kid I knew looked forward to being able to drive a tractor in the field, course now I still do drive the tractor, I've been on the farm for the last 50 some years, I don't see anything wrong with teaching a kid some resposibility, sure couldn't hurt.

That's a big change from what we have now.

What do we have now? A large obtrusive government? I thought you were in favor of that?
