Choice begins in Education -choosing a favorite toy, book, song, subject, and friends. Choices get more confusing. People calling themselves educated adults are a big cause of that confusion. One guy training teachers in Chicago, Bill Ayers, chose to be an enemy of America, during his college years and chose to be a domestic terrorist bomber. Choices are tough - or should be. Barack Obama chose to be friends with Bill Ayers, as well as indicted political fixer Tony Rezko - whose friends with am Iraqi arms dealer. Some choices, those.
Choice in PC America has become a euphemism for the right to kill an unborn child. Pro Abortion candidates Senators Clinton and Obama cling to a woman's right to decide to unburden herself of a life that she he helped create. Fair enough.
I believe in Choice, but not in any one's right to kill an unborn child. I believe that tax-payers have a right to choose a school that performs as it should, is safe, offers solid values that produce competitive and dedicated American citizens.
Only one candidate running for President of the United States offers real Choice in Education. I can say Choice. I do not believe that Planned Parenthood has an exclusive lock on the use of the word. Choice needs to be an option.
John McCain is the only Pro Choice candidate. He has my vote. Here's what John McCain has to say about Choice:
John McCain believes our schools can and should compete to be the most innovative, flexible and student-centered - not safe havens for the uninspired and unaccountable. He believes we should let them compete for the most effective, character-building teachers, hire them, and reward them.
If a school will not change, the students should be able to change schools. John McCain believes parents should be empowered with school choice to send their children to the school that can best educate them just as many members of Congress do with their own children. He finds it beyond hypocritical that many of those who would refuse to allow public school parents to choose their child's school would never agree to force their own children into a school that did not work or was unsafe. They can make another choice. John McCain believes that is a fundamental and essential right we should honor for all parents.
As president, John McCain will pursue reforms that address the underlying cultural problems in our education system - a system that still seeks to avoid genuine accountability and responsibility for producing well-educated children.
John McCain will place parents and children at the center of the education process, empowering parents by greatly expanding the ability of parents to choose among schools for their children. He believes all federal financial support must be predicated on providing parents the ability to move their children, and the dollars associated with them, from failing schools.
