The rally began with supporters for Public Education marching 6 blocks to the Capital of Texas. Bearing signs and chanting for the future of our children. They are estimating around 15K marchers. Speakers from around the state gathered to share their moving opinions on how Gov. Rick Perry is handling the Tea Party induced idea of school cuts. Texas currently has a "rainy day fund" that is around $9.4 Billion, yes, that is with a B. Instead of using a fraction of the tax payer’s savings account to help fund the necessary education of our children, the Gov. is choosing to lay off teachers and close schools. The Gov. is blaming local levels for not going by their budget. Teachers, schools, and pretty much anyone with common sense are arguing that you can't run a school efficiently when your state funding is constantly cut.
My only question to the Gov. and his supporters is where would you be without your education?
We are fighting for the basic rights that our children are owed!! They are stripping the basic essentials that our children need to become constructive and upstanding citizens. All of my life I have heard how if you don't receive a good education, you will not get a good job. So is this just the way they want to save money, or is there a deeper and more accurate reason? We the people need to ask ourselves if we are more concerned with educating the future of America, or giving big corporations and the oil industry tax incentives. I recently heard a Republican Senator say that if we (the taxpayers he should say) do not give incentives to Exxon, Chevron, and other big corporations, they will not be able to keep up the work. Really?!?! I mean, REALLY??? Can there actually be people out there who think that a company who made profits of $14Billion last year would go out of business without our money?? What is the REAL reason? Well, we all know that the Right Wing has ALWAYS received cutbacks for "special interest groups" The only reason the Republican Party has enough money to even be able to hold its nose up at the middle class is because they are being paid to pass such bills! That might make you rich in the money sense, but eventually your morals will catch up to you! I wait for the day when the Right Wings gets back what they are doing to the working people three fold!
Cut corporate tax incentives to companies who ARE NOT struggling! Invest in your children!! I almost think that this is all a plot by the Republicans/Conservatives to kill off the middle class and create a Communist country consisting of only the rich, white, bratty little snakes!!!
If we stand tall America, we can win this country back! Let’s focus on the future! Today is already gone!
Out with the Tea Party, back to humanity!! Democrats unite!
