For many years, I have blogged about the damage the so-called reform/Libertarian movement has done to America and to America as One Nation. A nation that prospered as WE developed strong communities, one public education system, common values, and true representative government.
Our Nation is endangered by the starvation and planned destruction of neighborhood community schools – public comprehensive schools – and the privatization of public services for profit.
We are now well aware that there are forces that wish to destroy the basic elements that keep America strong: The representative processes, the public schools, community governments, community health systems, public services, and programs for the greater good. Because of greed and crooked ideologies, our public services have been privatized, pirated, and raided by profiteers. This has been done to access, and personally profit from the tax dollars we pay for the things best done when we put our resources together through government. Think roads, water systems, schools, public utilities, libraries, social services, aid to those in need, and safety nets for children and those who cannot help themselves…
Every social program is being attacked and is in danger of being starved out of existence as tax dollars are redirected and profiteers steal from us – the US.
The economic system called “capitalism” has been misused. Childhood poverty and human suffering are increasing at a disturbing rate. More and more human dignity is lost as the failed economic system is perverted to serve only a very few. The American Dream is now beyond the reach of a majority of citizens. Too many children come to school hungry. Many come from broken homes and homes taken by those who have manipulated the system for their own profit. Yet the “reformers” withhold and redirect our tax dollars so our communities and schools cannot help. The America killers then use the travail they caused to claim that American the experience has failed, and that representative democracy must be replaced by totalitarian forms of control. In example, they say that they have the right to set up publicly supported privatized schools and programs, many without certified teachers or complete curricula, so that they can personally profit. Every tax dollar they steal is of no value to our children or our society.
