This Is Why I'm Independent

I nearly hit a kid today. He was probably thirteen to fifteen years old and took off across a busy, four-lane road without paying much attention to both directions of traffic. After considering various political philosophies regarding such a scenario, I came up with the following responses:
Liberal — We should install a traffic light on every street corner and between every block so children will have the opportunity to cross the road safely no matter where they are.

Conservative — We should impose stricter punishments on drivers who hit children.

Libertarian — It's not my fault the kid's parents didn't teach him how to not die.
What I told the kid was this, "You're lucky you're not dead. Next time look both ways before crossing the street. Now go on and enjoy your life."

Maybe I should stop watching House on marathon.
