Tell Mitt Romney

We need teachers and first responders

      Organizing for Action

Mitt Romney is proposing we "cut back" on jobs for teachers, police officers, and firefighters.

President Obama knows getting rid of teachers and first responders won't grow our economy—and our communities can't afford to cut back on public safety or education. That's why investing in the people who protect our homes and families and educate our children is part of the President's plan to create up to a million new jobs.

Join the President in sending a clear message: Teachers and first responders deserve our support.

To:
Tell Mitt Romney
They deserve our support, and cutting back on their jobs—as Mitt Romney suggested—is not the way to grow our economy.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Our country is benefited, lives are saved, our children become educated and able to move our country forward in extreme ways. Teachers are the most important resource in this country. Without them the children would never become a resource in themselves. Teachers and those who put their lives on the line for all of us are heroes and need our support and admiration.

      In an increasingly globalize world, we need our teachers to help the next generation prepare for what lays ahead. Our police officers and firefighters also work hard and save many lives. Without those individuals, where would we be as a society?

      Without teachers our public school system, already troubled, will fail. Without first responders, destruction and chaos will result. And that will be the end of the USA as a civilized country. No amount of flag-waving and rousing calls to patriotism will save it. Those like Romney, however, can afford to retreat to enclaves with private security. But what about the rest of us?

      When will politics leave this supposed free nation? Without teachers, how will our future leaders learn? Computers cannot nurture and teach students the way effective teachers can. How would Mitt know? He's filthy rich!

      Romney, you're mean and cruel. Thinking too much of money and your own money. How about you donate that money of yours to help the economy then fire people who help lead and save our lives, huh. I can assure you, Romney, you look bad in children eyes already. BIG TIME for us teens and children admire firefighters, our teachers, our police officers with great respect. Romney, you're showing to be a bad president already.
