From 1620 through to 1917 education had two common themes; freedom of education was practiced as determined by the local community; education was administrated by local churches.
Today a collection of ancient writing one the philosophies on living and governing collected and publish in one book is censored from public schools.
Today a something needed by every person, moral and virtues, are no longer taught in public schools.

Are we looking at two problems: the character of the person(s) submitting the tax form and the people in the government agency (IRS) responsible for auditing those forms.
There are two repeated themes; politicians abusing the responsibility and government agencies controlled by political appointees.

Look in the mirror. We the People are in charge of this country. We just vote people into government offices to represent us.
We the people have allowed government agencies to make regulations with the power of law. Agencies that are headed by appointees and held accountable by no one.
Your lousy K-12 education was directed by a political appointee with an agenda.

We have been having care for veterans problems since the Article of Confederation and Perpetual Union days.
Got really bad during and after the Civil War.
Always the same issue, money. Who is getting the money that is being spent.

A political appointee is given your natural right to prepare your children to become the next generation of parents, just as government appointees did to you.
Ethics, virtues, morality are not taught, the Bible is censored from school libraries and this lady’s behavior is an example of the best of the best’s graduate.
Administrators of this education system, trained by this system, claim today’s parents lack the level of education needed to train their children to be effective parents.

Imagine your are a business owner.
How do you find employees who meet your standards for your company?
Do you defer your standards to the dictates of third party? Such that neither you, as the business owner, or the potential employee who has spent years educating themselves to be a valuable, skilled, moral being are the deciding vote in who becomes an employee and who decides the character of your business.

Politically Correct… how adults teach children to lie.

The Senate just voted to decrease the value of your savings.
We are still borrowing 40% of the money we spend. Our monetized economy puts currency into circulation thus decreasing the buying power of your savings, the buying power of your pay check.
Is the senate vote good for your net worth?

Same people who got us into this mess, We the People.
First we let political appointees set curriculum that is used to education the young, that would be all of us. Then as ill informed parents we allowed our local communities to accept federal funding with accompanying federal regulations.
Soon We the People in our local communities were dependent of federal dollars in the schools, the police forces, social services.
In the order of power, no government has more power than We the People. Unfortunately ignorant voters are the result of politically controlled compulsory education. As a result we tens of states who have no say determining the direction of government because they vote for the same political party decade after decade. Their political loyalty turns them into powerless citizens.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. ”
No unalienable right, among these life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, comes at the expense of another’s right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
Buyers have the right to choose where they spend their money. Is it reasonable that sellers have the right to choose who they want to accept money from?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
In small, remote communities or in closed communities does the family relationship of the partners who become parents matter in the health of the offsprings?
In the past community elders, who knew the family heritage, gave their permission based on the appropriateness for couples to marry or not. Over time community churches became the keeper of local family heritage, therefore the church could certify the appropriateness of a couple to marry.
When government begin issuing marriage certificates there often was a blood test stipulation. That stipulation has since been dropped.
When government tax benefits became tied to marriages, marriage certificates evolved from certifying an appropriate marriage to certifying a tax break and other financial advantages.
Who cares who decides to live with who?

Correction… review the video of Obama stating he had been to 57 and was going to the 58th.
Balanced budget means planning to spend more than income and then spending exactly what was planned by borrowing the difference.
Unbalanced budget means planning to spend more than income and then spending more than was planned by borrowing the difference.
Eisenhower was the last President to administer a budget that lowered the national debt, spent less than income.

I have wondered people who make absolute statements like yours would sign a statement like this “And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”

We the People vote for the best of the best from our area to represent us.
Is this an example of the best of the best from her area?
Is it reasonable to expect a higher degree of competency from our education system graduates?

I mentioned this vote to someone who is a Obama supporter. The first comment was about the Republican’s voting against anything Obama does. After repeating the vote count 1-98 it was still neccesary to explain how many people are in the Senate and how many are from either party.
We definitely need to return our education system to Freedom of Education.

Its easy to make school more affordable, ask the school administration and staff to donate three quarters of their time and teachers to donate half their time.
Or just give the students the money to be spent in whatever school they choose.
Of course if we want to improve education double the number of classes per day, isn’t that how we get more money to spend, double the amount in circulation?

With an education system in decline, once rated number 1 now rated below 20th in the world, is there a chance that the education system is failing the students?
Is there a chance that the further the elder students go in school the less challenging school becomes?
If we could only add a few more course, say twice as many, then would we be twice as well educated? Or less than half as well educated?
Inflation has the same effect every time. Add twice as much money in circulation and buying power goes down. Add twice as many course in school and education goes down. Its 2nd grade math, if the whole is divided into more parts each part is smaller.
