  1. I think you could look at it more in terms of conservatives and liberals. The political parties have changed through history in terms of which represents conservative values and which represents liberal values. That might actually be an interesting class. Maybe you should write a paper looking at the history of each party and how it has changed over time.

    • I agree!
      Also, if I have a gifted history teacher, sometimes the specific incidents/events can make it a tricky call as to whether or not the groups discussed fell squarely into either camp.

      Happy Friday Julie – and of course Liza!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
