    Some reasons why our education system needs changes:

    * half of our adults are on welfare.
    * more then half of our college graduates in science, engineering, and chemistry were born in other countries.
    * half of our doctors, and engineers are from other countries.
    * about twenty thousand American companies are now owned by foreign investors.
    * high unemployment.
    * technology with smart phones, computers, American car engines, transmissions,etc, are designed by foreign engineers.

    We spend a record amount on education. Standardized tests hasn't worked, and maybe we should go back to how schools were in the 50's.

    This election is a simple choice! Do we continue to allow the public discourse to plummet towards complete political hyperbole, an election divided by ideology instead of a substantive discussion about the tuff decisions we face, do we allow the extremes views currently being expressed to drive a wedge between us or do we stand up and say enough to people like mountainman?

    This election is a simple choice! Do we continue to be a debtor nation plummeting toward economic insolvency, a nation in steep decline, a nation that is divided by class, gender and race, a nation of declining employment, a welfare dependency nation or do we change the direction our current leaders are taking us to once again become the great nation we used to be! What kind of country will we pass on to our children? The choice could not be more simple and obvious! Romney/Ryan in November!
