At least a dozen teachers from Oklahoma have filed to run for office in the November midterm elections. Many of these activists are first-time candidates who feel their representatives failed to secure better funding for public schools and higher wages. ... "There are so many parents, community members, and students up here seeing what's going on and how they [lawmakers] are not responding to the voices of the people they represent," [second-grade teacher Cyndi] Ralston said after filing her candidacy papers. "I think it's going to grow."

We just gave trillions of dollars of free tax money from tax cuts to corporations already making record profits ...

Here's an idea ... how about aiming our nation's money toward things that actually matter, like paying teachers an actual living wage while fixing our crappy schools so our nation's children can actually be educated -- it's only all about our nation's future.

And saying there's no money for education is pure BS.

@#1 ... And saying there's no money for education is pure BS. ...

The Republicans are slowly convincing me that they do not want to educate people, that they prefer to have uneducated people who will serve the elite and the corporations.

Sometimes I wonder if the Republicans want a feudal system in the country.

They convinced me of that a long time ago.

Education is a privilege best allocated to who has money.

Good luck, Teachers. You'll have to fight the DNC and DCCC for a seat.

They're never gonna let you win anything over their protected loyalists.

Don't believe me? Look into the NY gov primary - Coumo's their chosen lackey.

Respectfully, it's the RNC and their greedy douche-bag billionaire donors who are the problem, not the DNC.

Bush Tax Cuts cost the U.S. economy $6.6 trillion

And last December was the same old BS nonsense with Republicans like Lindsey Graham admitting out loud that if they didn't pass their latest round of corporate tax cuts, their billionaire campaign donors would no longer fund their campaigns -- which was another ~ $2 trillion of free tax money given to billionaires.

I get it that Democrats and the DNC aren't your cup of tea, but let's not pretend where the preponderance of the blame for this mess lies -- and it's the dounche-bag billionaires like the Koch Brothers, the Mercers, the Sheldon Adelson's who fund Republican candidates who are effing up the country with their greedy desire to loot the US Treasury of all it's money.
