my first post concerning the presidential campaign

I will not knowingly make any derogatory remarks towards any of presidential candidates.

I recently read that the former Governor of my state Mitt Romney, had reversed a view that he held concerning Hillary Clinton's book "It Takes a Village". while he was Governor he agreed with her assessment. In a recent political campaign stop he reversed his view and also stated that he believes in "It Takes a Family" rather than "It Takes a Village".

Don't get me wrong, the family unit is the basis of our society but at the same time with out that "village" we cannot have more than the family unit.

I feel that he is wrong in his assessment of the whole thing because I believe it is a slap in the face of the childcare providers, the education system and the police departments in our society just to name a few things that would suggest otherwise.

If it didn't take a village then why would we need anything that our society provides us, because if there were no such thing as the "village" mentality then we could not have childcare providers to care for our children so we could go off for work, we would all have to be our childrens primary educators also including all matters concerning schooling and we would not have police need for police departments due to us policing our children even when they are away from home and out of site.
