Recommendation: Buy it!

Do you remember School House Rock? Like most children, I watched a lot of TV growing up, and School House Rock was a staple. As I type this, songs like “Conjunction Junction” and “Electricity” are running through my brain. These are great videos because they are not just educational; they are fun!

The Election Collection is no different. It features any and all the songs you remember that relate to the upcoming Presidential Election, and a new song, “Presidential Minute.” I actually had to be told that it was a new song, because it was so well incorporated into the other ones. Best of all, at least for my 8-year-old son, the set comes with a map of the USA and red and blue dots to track the upcoming election.

God has truly blessed us, with the right to vote for our governmental leaders here in the USA. All of these songs remind my cynical nature that, even with it’s problems, I was born into a country of privileges. Even a country that allows me to cynically complain about it.

Ironically I don’t have TV now (go figure), so we’ll be tracking the election on the Internet with the stickers, while watching The Election Collection. I recommend you do the same. And for goodness sake, get out there and vote!

Patrick was born in Hollywood...literally! Hollywood Community Hospital in 1970. I met Jesus and my wife, Linda, in 1989. Two relationships that I treasure to this day. We have two sons, Joshua and Jason, and a little dog named Sophie. We love Jesus together, enjoy living on the Central Coast of California and hanging with our boys and dog at the beach or a park. As far as Hollywood Jesus it's a privilege to write with real writers...since I'm not. I hope you like my reviews, which are more commentary on everything that MovesMe. I always assume you've seen the movie or TV show that I'm commenting on...so be fair warned; I'm a spoiler.
