The electorate

Ignorance will cost country

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY  |  COMMENTS
The decline of the general education level in our country is beginning to have its effects on the electorate as evidenced by the outcomes of the initiatives in Washington and Wisconsin. Those who don't know history are bound to repeat it. Voters need to repudiate the attempts by the business barons to buy elections, otherwise we will devolve to the economic conditions that existed during the time of the Fisks and Carnegies -- before the rise of organized labor.
We can't let the Koch Brothers, Sam Walton and all of their ilk advance their own agendas simply because they can outspend the opposition in our electoral process.
Thomas Munyon
