Vote no on school district's levy

| March 4, 2021 1:00 AM

In November, the school district lost its $4.8 million levy by 500 votes. Now we vote again (an often-repeated scenario).

Some allege the district just did not get the facts out to the voters or some other reasons, so the district is better “educating the voters” by sending home with the students report cards, letters informing the parents about the upcoming levy, and its importance. The school district is planning a robocall reminding the parents of the election. These are not honest efforts to educate the public but to manipulate the election outcome to get $4.8 million. A private "yes group" is planning like actions.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn (credited with bringing down the Soviet Union and authored "The Gulag Archipelago") warned that the 60 million killed in the Soviet Union could happen to the West, pointing out that the Russian people had forgotten God. To forget God is far more than some displaced concept but is to deny truth, imperial facts, and reality itself.

The “institutions of higher education” promote the philosophies of last century’s totalitarian states under the names of secularism, postmodernism, the LBGTQs … and the other “oppressed minorities” and these concepts trickle down in the local public schools. Social engineering is promoted to accept “transgendering” while belittling our nation’s founding and law and order.

The “uninformed” people have voted no in a valid uncontested election. Vote no on March 9 and pass the word.
