I reactivated my Facebook account this evening to leave a message on the EDU Debtors Union page about a petition that I posted on the Whitehouse.gov about the student-loan debt crisis. Out of desperation - I asked that any FB'er viewing my post, look at my petition and please sign it.
I ask the same of you. Education is a right - it is a Human right. I mean, there are third-world countries that have better educational systems than us and their kicking our asses in Math and Science. Education is the purest form of liberty and yet we here in "The land of opportunity" lack the true freedom it is supposed to provide.
The Obama Administration and this Congress have done little to address this $1,000,000,000,000.00 + issue and it is time to start holding them accountable. The time for half-assed, half-measured proposals has passed. The Student-loan repayment program isn't good enough, they're going to have to try harder - do better for us. They work for us, for you - remember that. You're more powerful than you know, my friends. Stay true, change this world.
