|Ralph's Political Philosophy
In a country as rich as ours, we have failed to provide all our citizens and children with decent health care. We have inadequate schools with overcrowded classrooms, and underpaid teachers, while we spend more on alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drugs than we do on public education.
Just one corporate mogul, Bill Gates, possesses enough personal wealth to match the budgets of all the school districts in California. And, we’re told that we can’t find enough money for public schools.
