What does it mean when we hear that the United States has to be globally competitive? When I hear that, the first thought that comes to my mind is that we need to be economically competitive. The second thought that comes to my mind is why are we asking ourselves this question and why are we doubting our competitiveness in anything?
Our goal shouldn’t be being competitive; it should be being superior and dominating economic activity and world production. We should also be superior and without a doubt unmatched in military force. To obtain these levels of superiority our entire population must have access to public schools, colleges, and universities of higher education. And when I say access, I mean fully supported K-12 and tuition free colleges and universities.
This will reap unlimited benefits to not only Tennesseans but our entire Nation. A direct benefit to you regardless of your age and income status, is that you will have access to advanced education to further your career and raise your earning potential. By maintaining the public school system K through infinity our nation will obtain ultimate superiority in all global activities.
