I am writing to comment on the tax hike for schools. Every year some individual wants to get more money for schools. And every year the students do not get any smarter or improve on test scores telling me that spending more and more money does not improve any students skill level at thinking or use their brain to do better on academic skills. The only improvement money makes is to line the pockets of those claiming students lives will be enriched by throwing more and more money to school buildings . School buildings do not teach children. People such as school educators are supposed to be enhancing the students mind. I am a property tax payer and those people who attempt to persuade the tax payer are getting a little to shop worn. They need to try a different approach. I have been paying and paying and paying for several years and nothing ever happens except to make my bank account get smaller and smaller.

Actually if they would stop supporting Anchor kids like Americans want them too then they would have plenty of funds. The anchor kids cost Colorado 6 million last year..That is 12 more than they want..Its easy math to me..
If they want to go to school then fine but they and their parents have to pay for it like the rest of us..
No more freebies and no more support, then these anchor/illegal immigrant organizations need to be flushed out and made to reimburse America..That would help billions..
Obama has endorsed anchor kids and free rides for the ungrateful non working class long enough..
We cant afford 1 more year much less 4 more..

Obama had 4 years to change the country for the better.
I need not explain how he and his corrupt Chicago mafia handlers have made everything worse. Simply look around with your own lying eyes for proof.
We need real jobs, not McWalmart jobs.
We also don't need the Obama Administration continuing on it's current path to oblivion without having to worry about re-election. This would be dangerous to our constitution's survival and our pocketbooks.
Romney is owned by the same international bankers as Obama destroying America from overseas.
However by hittig the reset button on the corrupt, power crazed, Obama administration it gives more Americans time to wake up to what is presently happening to America.
Obama may be likeable but he is incompetent.
In some aspects Obama is right when he says "you didn't build/create that, government did."
Let's look at what this administration has created in 4 short years and imagine what he can do with 8:
- Socialist eugenics based health care (((Obamacare)))
-NDAA (((National Defense Authorization Act))) where Americans can now be disappeared without a jury
- Out of control (((Crony Capitalism))) where government picks winners and losers based on payouts -not the free market eg. Solyndra, GM, MF Global, Numerous Bank Bailouts, No Prosecution of criminal Banksters
-(((Fast and Furious))) and other suspected domestic false flags to argue for abolishing the 2nd ammendmant
- Massive (((TSA expansion))) onto America's streets and armed (((survellance drones/now blimps))) operating over US territory.
-((UN control of U.S. military troops to invade))) Egypt, Syria, parts of Africa, etc. for offshore bankers aka Nazism
- The idea that nothing can be built without (((more government bureaucrats and global warming regulations/taxes))) getting in the way
-(((Throwing Israel -an important ally- under the bus))) by destabalizing all the county's around it but not offering them any assurances of protection
- A (((continuation of Bush's failed policies))), like not getting out of Iraq, Afghanastan, and no closing of Guantanamo torture camps
-(((Polaraized race relations))) eg. Disrespectful hadling of the Treyvon Martin family after his murder -opportunistic my son would have looked like Treyvon soundbite- and media staged racial infighting between Americans setting up for social conflict right before the 2012 election
-(((No Proof Obama supposedly got Osama)))) America was never really allowed to see the body/proof ; -)
-(((Defunding of NASA))) No exploration of the stars for the U.S., leave that to countries that are exceptional
- And of course my personal favorite (((legalizing the illegals))) temporarily until the election is over but not once addressing true immigration reform
- The list goes on.
Is this change you can believe in? Is this what you really want another 4 years of?
As Donald Trump would say: Obama you're fired (you too Mayor Villar):
Too bad Ron Paul chickened out. I'd still vote for him if he changed his mind however.
