I used to seriously misunderstand the concept of voting. I assumed whoever voted for one option would get it and whoever voted for the other option would get the other, instead of the option with more votes affecting everyone.

Back in the mid 90's, when I was about 10, I used to believe that I was a prisoner in a digital world. I used to feel that beyond this reality was a utopia, and that I had broken the laws of that utopia and was imprisoned in a digital reality that was meant to continually punish me until I had learned my lesson, whatever it may be.

The Spanish word for president is "Presidente". I have a Mexican origin. When they told me Vicente Fox was the president of Mexico, I thougt that his name was Fox and that both Presidente and Vicente were titles. I used to boast to my school partners that Fox was Presidente AND Vicente of Mexico xD

When I was little I heard on the TV that poverty had something to do with politics. I knew politics was something the mayor do, and mayors take care of cities.
So I believed that poor people lived in poor towns, and rich people lived in rich towns.

When I was little I wanted to be president.
I thought a president has power to do whatever he or she wanted because I didn't know about the constitution or three branches of government. So I was determined to become president and make it a law that everyone had to have a horse.

Before I knew about voting I thought a president was picked as so: the old president would have everyone in the country go to this HUGE building where he would stand on a stage at ask "ok, who wants to be president?" and anyone who wanted to be would raise their hands and the old president would pick one at random and they would be the new president!

When I was little, I thought people voted by putting out candidates' signs on their lawn. I thought if you put out more signs than you were voting more, and I didn't understand why we only put out 2.
