Figuring out fake news ...

Why do democrats now want to combat “fake news”?

After reading a thread from Easley Rep. Neal Collins - who has many admitted democrats posting in the forum - he has people convinced in the false premises of ...

1) This country is a representative democracy

(It is a strict constitutional republic, and many founding documents state such.)

so therefore ...

2) The legislature should appoint more positions rather than the people voting for them

(The constitution of the State of South Carolina has to be changed in order to change an office from elected to appointed. Changing our constitution should be the furthest action from any legislator’s mind.)

so therefore ...

3) Many of our education problems could be solved if lobbying were more prominent rather than campaigning and debating.

(An appointed superintendent will always go with the process rather than the solution.)

The solution is, we need a superintendent who will respond and be accountable to the people - remove CBE, remove ESSA, reduce credit hours and allow anything above 16 hours to apply to tech/trade school credit, do not accept federal funding, combine school districts into county wide districts (creating slimmer, more efficient admin), pay teachers at a state level (pay grade should be merit and tenure - district level pay creates a false notion of competition), bring back stricter discipline policies (not corporal punishment just stricter)

An appointed superintendent will do none of that or try none of that.

Don’t we want less government, more say so, fair ethical participation?
