Romney is right. The lazy 47% should learn to work hard and acquire wealth the way he did: by inheriting the money, power and prestige from his father. If each American would simply hop on a DeLorean, add a Flux Capacitor and change his or her lineage, we wouldn’t have people clamoring for such luxuries as food and shelter and healthcare.
Oops, it turns out that doesn’t work with the space-time continuum paradox.
People speak of education policy as if it’s limited to NCLB or Race to the Top. However, immigration laws, poverty and medical access affect my classroom in profound ways that one doesn’t recognize while running large corporations.
And here’s the thing: I don’t trust a man who views my students as government mooches. I don’t trust a man who considers me a beggar demanding a handout when I suggest that my children should get affordable healthcare. So, I’m not voting for Romney. No matter how disappointed I may be with Obama, there’s not a shot in hell that I’ll vote for Mitt.
