Fire,

I am not a republican or a democrat.

I am a firm believer that what is good for wage-earning, legal Americans is good for America.

NOT, what is good for the rich, their businesses or the ‘party’.

The two-party BUSINESS CORPORATIONs,

(yes, the republican and democratic parties are mere business entities),

should NOT have a PERPETUAL MONOPOLY over our government our electoral system and our votes.

Before you criticize obama, or myself,

please have the courtesy to do basic research regarding my stated opinion;

I’ve spent many years listening and observing, and feel my outlook is far more realistic and indicative of reality than the controlled press and media would like to feed you and make you a disciple of their 'party-line' policies.

Many tales have been told about the ‘story’,

but there are few to present the ‘rest of the story’.

Perform basic research, before you mouth the ’party-lines’ platitudes.

When things regarding

education ‘change’

come from the mouths of republicans,

ALL wage-earning taxpayers,

must be at once,

suspect, extremely vigilant,

attentive and demand that definitive answers are forthcoming from these people answering in detail,

the following questions:

1) what,

2) where,

3) when,

4) why,

5) how,

6) how much, (follow the money trails).

Republicans and their corporations

led by the American Legislative Exchange Council, (ALEC),

a secretive, covert group of rich, and republicans, secretly financed,

are seeking to sideline the $84 BILLION dollars spent annually in this country on K through 12 education . . .

and by reason of ‘change’ to current law, and with implementation of other covert operations,

will lead to more money in their businesses and bank accounts.

The American Legislative Exchange Council, (ALEC),

which governor snyder, and republican legislators in Michigan are strong proponents and adherents,

including

OUR

very

OWN

TOM CASPERSON

AND

EDDIE MCBOOM.

Republicans,

and their corporations

want nothing better than to take over a portion of the money devoted to K - 12 education,

through the use computerized teaching,

vouchers,

charter schools,

academies,

home schooling,

and other nefariously concocted

schemes to derail and sideline public taxpayers dollars into their private coffers.

These people, The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), has been actively engaged in this goal for

many, many years,

and as they manage to get more of their ILK elected to public office,

they are succeeding and the American Public is not aware of their goals.

Any educational change coming from republicans should at once be scrutinized under an electron microscope,

as to where the money trail will ultimately lead,

and what educational qualities will ultimately be diminished because of these ‘changes’.

The state of Ohio,

a John Kasich republican governor,

and ONE of the founders of the AMERICAN LEGISLATIVE EXCHANGE COUNCIL, (ALEC) …

has had a very poor and expensive, dalliance,

with computerized education on a state-wide basis with

PRIVATE - for PROFIT - education businesses.

The state of Ohio took years to ‘discover’ that their experience was

POOR in the way of educational benefits for students, but also

EXPENSIVE for Ohio taxpayers, and was soon discarded.
