I think editorial cartoon contests are a great idea. They encourage young people to think about issues and it gives them a venue to display their artistic talent.
Heck, such contests are good for 'old' people such as me, too!
The winning entry: I am supporting Rand Paul here. Yes, I have trepidations and doubts. I like his father much more. I was extremely disappointed when Rand did not endorse his own father, but instead supported Romney.
That said, he still claims he's out to audit the Fed and he's also against the Patriot Act, the NSA and so forth. We'll see if he can carry his father's torch of liberty.
