To the Obama Campaign

My contact with the Obama campaign began with a form fill-in link through a twitter post, I believe. I took issue with RTTT probably, and the de-funding of public education. Here is the response.

Dear Dan,

Here is my return.

Thank you for your response. I will use the links you sent. 

I want you to know that I am torn right now. Despite my union's suggestion that Mr. Obama is the best choice, I will never be a "lesser of two evils" voter. 

Mr. Obama's support of legislation that serves to gut public schools and dangle funding in return for demeaning, costly and time consuming clerical tom-foolery instead of  inspired and responsive teaching...that is what could push me to an outsider with a platform that actually supports education that will support the middle class.
