SCHOOL LEVY: Time to vote no

This year is another 4.8 million dollar school levy. Get out and vote NO. The government schools have failed to produce good quality results. More money will not help solve the problem. The schools cost far too much and produce far too little, which is expected from government produced anything.

When our community leaders congregate together in an effort to handle future shooting and mayhem, should we not consider what in the world is going on!! Some say it will not happen here, but we know it can and may very well happen. We need to seriously consider why is this happening?

The proverb that you will reap what you sow is real. When the schools teach things like the theory of evolution, the survival of the fittest, and political correctness as truth, is it any wonder we have a myriad of foolish results? We do not need to give more money to further indoctrinate the students into the socialistic agenda that undermines our great heritage. It is far past time for the schools to return to teaching the principles of freedom and truth, and not the politically correct agenda. Vote no on the levy.
