The liberals’ never-ending war on our children has to stop!
Liberals, time for immediate withdrawal!
Liberals out of U.S. schools now!

Liberals? Are you on drugs? You’re blaming HS grad rates on LIBERALS?

We spend relatively little money on education because we’ve spent it all on war. When education of our kids becomes more important than the military budget these numbers will improve.

War is a “conservatives” issue, my dear.

Get a life.
