For The Kids - Really?

For The Kids - Really?

 

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

          -Albert Einstein

Who Are We?

We are individuals who believe we are to manage our limited resources wisely and not robotically support all "urgent" tax increases, otherwise called levies. "We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarranantable jurisdiction over us . . ."   The Declaration of Independence

We are good parents who send our children to public schools but expect our public school administrators to live within their budget and to be accountable to the public they profess to serve.

We are the families of two million home-educated children who have embarked on a more stimulating and rewarding adventure after concluding, "The philosophy of the classroom today
will be the philosophy of government tomorrow."

We are the families of 5.9 million private-school-educated children. In addition to our public school taxes, we pay on average $6400 per student per year. We really are for the kids!

We are senior and wizened citizens on a shrinking income who simply cannot afford another tax, however much we might appreciate the cause.

We are business men and women who are already burdened with ever increasing regulations and taxes so the addition of another new tax just negates our desire to hire new employees. We are for progress, not wearisome, empty and failed paradigms.

We are over-taxed American families who are against paying another dime to an over-fed, inefficient government bureaucracy. "When deceit becomes universal, truth becomes a revolutionary act."   George Orwell

We are homeowners who believe in private home ownership and that property taxation is immoral. " . . . promote the general welfare (not special welfare), and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity."   preamble to the U.S. Constitution

We are patriots who believe that the leaders of the Federal government should bind themselves to the Constitution to which they took an oath, particularly respecting, Article 10, and get out of the business of educating the nation’s children. Violation of Constitutional boundaries and delegated powers has produced a Federal leviathan, perpetual social unrest and the loss of liberty.

We are Christian and Catholic communities who understand the "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom" and with the One True God's dismissal from the government schools, folly and strife have occupied the school house.

We are religious and moral people who are against the immorality that is being taught to our nation’s children in tax-subsidized government schools. "To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."   Thomas Jefferson

We are a diverse group of Americans, but we have one thing in common: we want to stop our local public school's abuse of the public's funds. "Tis VIRTUE, then, direct VIRTUE that is to be aimed at in education. All other considerations and accomplishmnts are nothing in comparison to this."   John Locke

We agree with the definition of insanity, that "insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." We're leaving the asylum. We're proclaiming our freedom. This is a new decade with new opportunities. We intend to find new leaders who hear a different drummer. Won't you too see the light and embrace it's challenging and refreshing way?!
