“First, the government does not value education the way the American citizen does (or should). The one thing a government is genuinely scared of is an educated citizen. A body of people who can think and speak for themselves, who actually understands where their tax money is going towards.

This is why education is ranking 17th in the world. Because Congress do not prioritize education.

Did you know there is a bill pending in legislation that would forgive teacher's student loans up to $25,000? The bill requires that teachers teach for 5 consecutive complete school years that serve a high proportion of disadvantaged students schools before coming eligible. It was introduced in January of 2012, and has not moved since. Sign the petition at electedface.com now!

“Big corporations which have been given first amendment rights by the supreme court to make unlimited contributions to political candidates and elected officials, have saturated the media to make the American people believe that it’s bad for them to have the same health care benefits enjoyed by members of congress, supreme court, and the establishment. It just so happens big corporations and the establishment largely control which elected officials receive political contributions donated by big business under the guise of freedom of speech.

“Yes and since 2011, the F-22 has been crippled by unresolved problems with its pilot oxygen systems. This promoted the fleet to be grounded for four months in 2011. While flights have resumed, problems with the oxygen systems have continued, and repairs are still being made.”

“America is falling into greater debt every day. The government should hold itself to a higher standard in terms of proving that high cost projects will in some way benefit the American public. We are spending BILLIONS every year on the F35 and F22 and getting nowhere! Cut unnecessary spending!!

“As Attorney General, Tom Corbett received over $647,000 in campaign contributions from members of the Second Mile Foundation, while only assigning one investigator to the case.

Meanwhile, at the same time, he assigned 14 investigators to Bill Deweese, who spent more than 5 years trying to get him.

It is difficult to believe these campaign contributions did not improperly influence his decision to not file charges against Jerry Sandusky.

The state police trooper who initially handled the Clinton County case against Jerry Sandusky believed there was enough evidence from a teenage boy -- now known as Victim One-- to charge Sandusky with indecent assault.
