Letter to the Editor
Friday, March 22, 2013, 8:57 p.m.

Conservatives are in the minority and face election defeats simply because of the direction public education took decades ago.

Leading educators started filling college students' minds of mush with idealistic socialist drivel, which filtered down through secondary and primary levels. In graduating millions with that mindset, their indoctrination efforts bore fruit beyond their wildest dreams, finally achieving their goal of majority status but not without paying a big price — quality education.

Their proudest success, the current White House occupant dissatisfied with the extent of dominance, proposed universal preschool for 4-year-olds. The result, in addition to mind control, would be baby-sitting funded by overburdened taxpayers.

Answers: to the failed education dilemma, parental choice; to the liberal voting majority, voter ID, which causes Democrats to howl like the devil sprinkled with holy water. Their objection, that it'd deny voting privileges, is hogwash. Their real fear is one vote per person.

Voter ID would have prevented an Ohio woman from reportedly voting six times in November. Unrepentant when charged with voter fraud, she bragged she would have voted more times if possible to elect Obama. An isolated case? You be the judge.
