"At least two of the Republican candidates running for the Texas State Board of Education indicated in a conservative voter's guide that they don't believe the Texas State Board of Education should have any authority over how children are educated.

Both Eric Mahroum (R) and Lady Theresa Thombs (R) "disagree" that it "is the government's responsibility to be sure children are properly educated." Incumbent Pat Hardy (R) joined the pair in "strongly agree[ing]" that "the more people [who] live by Judeo-Christian values, the less government is needed."

The three "strongly agree[d] that "free market competition for education dollars" would be preferable to a "government monopoly" on education. TFN Insider noted that "'free market competition' is the core argument for private school vouchers, which take tax dollars from public schools to pay tuition for students admitted to private and religious schools.""* Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?! TYT Sports), Gina Grad (The Gina Grad Show) and Jarrett Sleeper (Totally Clevver) break it down on The Young Turks.

The Largest Online News Show in the World. Hosted by Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian. LIVE STREAMING weekdays 6-8pm ET.

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. Young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations. (American Heritage Dictionary)

The Young Turks (Winner - Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.

We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.

The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don't patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
