Election 2012


Election 2012 Presidential candidate is a clear choice. It is not about politics. It is about history. We are our children’s first teachers and our nation’s founding principles hang in the balance. E pluribus Unum is the motto of the United States of America. The translation from Latin is out of many, one. Each and every individual is vital to our nation and we the people determine the path to follow. Our forefathers warned of our today within our Constitution. Our nation is has reached a cross-road.

Our nation’s difficulties are a culmination of ideological “fairness” being infused into our nation’s governance over past decades. I have heard our president refer to himself “as a citizen of the world” in an address to a graduating class of West Point Cadets. One would expect the President of the United States of America to be a citizen of the United States of America. President Obama spoke of his vision for America’s future in his Democratic Presidential nomination acceptance speech. Our President spoke the same flowery words that he has spoken so many times before. I was saddened for our nation by a parade of women propagating a non war on women. Democrats today are not the same people I watched from the kids table discussing political issues. I am a registered female Independent voter.  

Our nation’s third largest school district’s teachers unions going on strike in Chicago, IL, is an excellent learning opportunity. Our nation’s public schools are funded by the taxpayer’s government dollars and our schools are run by the teachers unions. The teachers unions contribute to the Democratic Party with taxpayer dollars. These teachers’ unions’ teachers’ salaries are paid by the people. The average salary of the people is half of what unions already demand they pay the average teacher. The unions turned down an offer of a 16% increase. A demand for a 35% pay increase, no teacher evaluations to be conducted, and no contributing of their own made to supplement their medical benefits is what the teachers unions want for the children.

400,000 students attend our places of learning in Chicago, every day. School libraries are not available to our elementary students attending these public schools.  Music and art are not taught. Gym is only available at the high school level. Teachers do not use red pens to grade with any more. Students no longer get left behind they are socially progressed. Public School is becoming a place of daycare and not learning. We have no outrage from our President, “Mom –in-chief” or Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) on the absence of gym class. No outrage for our children’s inability to borrow a book from their school’s library.  Chicago is not the only major city not offering gym, music, or art to our children. Homeschooled and charter schooled children of our nation are thriving while being victimized. Which path do you choose?
