EDITORIAL: Say No to School Voucher Supporters
Posted February 22, 2018 by East Texas Today |   

THE FOLLOWING IS AN EDITORIAL STATEMENT BY JERRY HANSZEN, CEO OF HANSZEN BROADCASTING INC.

ONE COULD SAY ABOUT THEIR PASTOR (WHO HAS NEVER TAKEN A DRINK IN HIS LIFE) THAT HE IS A GREAT MAN WHEN HE IS SOBER.

NOW FOR THOSE WHO DID NOT KNOW THE MAN, WHAT WOULD THEY THINK?

THEY WOULD THINK THE MAN WAS A DRUNK. YET, OTHERS WOULD KNOW THAT WAS NOT TRUE. TODAYS TEXAS STATE ELECTIONS ARE FILLED WITH EXAMPLES JUST AS I HAVE DESCRIBED…… TELLING A HALF TRUTH OR OUT RIGHT LYING AND GETTING BY WITH IT.

THERE ARE A FEW AUSTIN POLITICIANS WHO HAVE JOINED SOME WEST TEXAS OIL MEN FOR THEIR MONEY. THESE PEOPLE ARE OUT FOR REVENGE IF YOU DO NOT VOTE THEIR WAY. IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU ARE NOT A YES MAN TO THEM, YOU BECAME A TARGET. I ALWAYS THOUGHT ONE SHOULD EVALUATE EACH BILL AND SEE HOW IT WOULD AFFECT HIS CONSTITUENTS AND VOTE ACCORDINGLY. ONE SHOULD THINK ON HIS OWN FEET.

THOSE IN OUR STATE WHO ARE FOR SCHOOL VOUCHERS WILL RUIN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. PRIVATE SCHOOLS ARE PRIVATE BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE. THEY ARE NOT GOING TO ACCEPT THE AVERAGE STUDENT; THOSE ARE THE STUDENTS THEY HAVE ALREADY RESTRICTED FROM THEIR SYSTEM.

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT PUBLIC SCHOOLS NEED MORE MONEY, BUT VOUCHERS WILL ONLY TAKE DOLLARS AWAY FROM PUBLIC EDUCATION. THEY WILL NOT PUT NEEDED MONEY BACK INTO THE SYSTEM.

REMEMBER, LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR DAN PATRICK IS FOR SCHOOL VOUCHERS AND A YES MAN TO THIS GROUP.

LET’S KEEP PEOPLE IN AUSTIN THAT THINK ON THEIR OWN TWO FEET… PEOPLE TO WHOM WE CAN TALK AND EXPRESS OUR THOUGHTS AND OUR RECOMMENDATIONS.

FIRST OF ALL, ONE MUST VOTE. SECOND, DO NOT LET SOMEONE WHO HAS A LOT OF MONEY BUY YOUR VOTE. FIND OUT THE TRUTH. DON’T LET BIG MONEY COMING FROM AREAS OUT OF EAST TEXAS INFLUENCE YOU.

CHECK OUT EMPOWER TEXANS, TEXANS FOR FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY, TEXAS HOME SCHOOL COALITION, AND TEXAS PUBLIC POLICY FOUNDATION. YOU WILL FIND THAT THEY ARE ALL IN CONCERT. … A GROUP OF MILLIONAIRES AND BILLIONAIRES WHO WILL DO ANYTHING TO PUT THEIR YES PERSON IN OFFICE.
