    People need to realize that for private profit schools are just that for private profit, and not for any student. There should not be private profit schools that use tax payer funds for the same reason of the founding of our nation, i.e. "there cannot be any taxation without representation." School board meetings of private profit schools are not open to the tax payer. Government provides for public institutions as a means of providing for and creating a higher civilization. Those who choose not to participate in those public institutions are not released from there obligation and participation in our nation and civilization of a civil society. Those who choose a private institution may freely do so, but without taxpayer representation there is no public funding. Those private institutions that accept public funding should expect to accept taxpayer representation, and no longer be private.

    My focus is limited to the discussion regarding the growing call, nationally, to execute a Constitutional right under Article V to call a Convention of States to PROPOSE amendments to the Constitution which require the same standard to be ratified: Three fourths of the States to confirm as usual. You wrote: "...right-wing’s drive for a constitutional convention to rewrite the U.S. Constitution." The judiciary does not, and cannot, have any say in the process. Even Congress has no role beyond calling the Convention. You wrote: "ALEC is banking on none of the decades-old applications, or applications with significantly different language, will be thrown out by the courts." A Convention of States to propose amendments is NOT A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION! You wrote: "For anyone entertaining the notion that a Constitutional Convention would be an exercise in popular democracy, this is not your crowd." There's so much more but I am limited to essentially a long tweet.

    Globalism and central rule v. individual liberty. Give me liberty. And yes, I am not a global robot in my thinking.

    "Dating back to as early as 2004, and as recently as last week, ACORN workers in at least nine states — including Colorado, Pennsylvania and Ohio — have been charged with various crimes related to voter fraud. At least 50 people have been arrested in connection to ACORN-related voter fraud in those states, with four arrest warrants currently outstanding in Florida. At least 30 of these cases reportedly culminated with guilty pleas". So much for 'your' 'beloved' ACORN. This site is just another liberal rag, nothing more, and nothing less.

    Mr Wimsitt: The only racism I see is when you accuse this writer of it . Yep, always throw down the race card when you got nothing else in your hand.
