Well, we are 13 days from either Armageddon or restoration of our country. That is no exaggeration. If the Democrats win, we all lose. If the Republicans win, America can survive and thrive.
Whether we win or lose is up to us and everyone we know, so I beg you to do your part. Register, vote and remind all your friends to do so by simply pressing the share button on your Facebook page.
It is imperative that we understand the dramatic differences in the philosophies of the two parties. I will take a separate plank from the platform of the Republican Party and compare it to the Democratic Party platform every day until the election so that you will be informed and I expect that you will be alarmed.
The following is compiled and explained by the Family Research Council.
On Common Core and School Choice.
In their platform, the Democrats “believe that a strong public education system is an anchor of our democracy” for “all children.” “Democrats are also committed to…high-quality public school options and expanding these options for low-income youth.” They offer no support for families, even poor ones, who want private or faith-based schooling for their children.
The GOP Platform promises Republicans will “fight for school choice” and “local control of our schools.” It recognizes that “parents” not the government, “are a child’s first and foremost educators, and have primary responsibility for the education of their children.” Therefore Republicans support “home-schooling…private or parochial schools…Education savings accounts (ESAs), vouchers, and tuition tax credits.” Republicans also favor “implementing alternatives to Common Core, and congratulate the states which have successfully repealed it.”
